    A couple people made that comment, haha! I wear that as my regular winter jacket...it's a bit light for walking/standing around, but it's perfect on the bike, even down into single digits if you...

    Mine? WWII era Swedish. Typically referred to as an M39/58, since it was modified in the late '50s to more closely resemble the new uniforms of that period, and not waste the old stock. Mine is...
  3. Rode in my first Tweed Ride last weekend...

    There were some really cool vintage/antique bikes there! Didn't take any pictures, myself, but I saw a restored 1923 Columbia with wooden rims, the requisite high-wheeler, lots of 3-speeds...

    Worth mentioning - I don't think it's happening until summer 2016, but a section of Comm Ave is gonna be rebuilt with a separated cycletrack.

    I angled the bars up slightly yesterday morning, and it seemed to be ok all day, especially if I kept my hands farther back on the hoods. Gonna leave it like this for a while and see how it works...

    One more observation made this morning...higher tension on the wider saddle than the narrower one...I wonder if this would lead to subtle saddle discomfort on the narrower (new) saddle that'd have me...

    It's actually a noticeable difference in width...we're talking about centimeters, not millimeters, so it's an overall difference of the better part of an inch.

    I would be surprised if things are...

    I can't get my hands comfortable!

    Ok, so here's the deal. I have a Bianchi Volpe that I generally find quite comfortable....I spent practically the whole day on it a couple days ago, for example. It's a 51cm frame, 2011 model. I...

    Thanks, Tom, I was hoping you'd reply (I remembered you had a Volpe). I got the Marathons on, the 35 fit on the back fine (listed on the tire sidewall as both 700Cx35 and 37-622)...I could probably...

    I'm gonna put the Marathons on the Volpe and try those out first, since using them doesn't mean taking another bike out of commission. I'm mostly concerned about a couple longish night-time rides I...
  11. Don't get me wrong! The Volpe is also...

    Don't get me wrong! The Volpe is also fender-equipped, and I do like to try to keep it nice-looking to a point as well, but that's a bike that I bought in part for its ability to handle the...

    Maybe if it didn't have aluminum fenders and other bits that I'd like to keep looking nice....

    Hadn't really crossed my mind. The bike they're on isn't really suitable for that kind of riding at all, and they were a bit of a pain to mount (folding version)
  14. Tire like the Panaracer RiBMo, but more versatile?

    I love the RiBMos on my singlespeed, and I kinda want to put a set on my Volpe, but one of the things I love about the Volpe with its current tires (WTB All Terrain) is the ability to go offroad on a...

    You might be taking me slightly too seriously, but here's why I said it:

    I do the vast majority of my own repairs, but even then, I occasionally find myself with the bike temporarily out of...

    I just got a Trelock LS950 the other day, and I'm pretty impressed by it so far. It's made in Germany, for the German market, so it meets the StVZO requirements with a shaped beam and all that, and...

    One of my friends said the headbadge reminded him of the Rivendell Atlantis one. I know Grant's into the TRP RRL levers now, but I'm fairly certain he wouldn't often use a saddle that narrow or have...

    It's actually not that far forward of center, it's just where the rails are located. I'd thought about using a zero-setback seatpost originally, but the seat tube angle is only half a degree...

    Because all my bikes have the same rear rack, so that I can easily move my pannier from one bike to another without making any adjustments. I've never ridden with a front rack, but porteur racks are...

    I finally brought this bike home a few weeks ago, but it took a while before I had a chance to measure or test-fit anything. It's slightly too big of a frame for me, and there's not quite enough...
