MUP = Multi Use Path
Enjoy the great weather, I have ridden a few hundred miles in the High Desert, and further east in the low desert of Death Valley too.
I luvs me my Nor Cal, but the desert has a real beauty too,...
Just this year, I too have begun to wear a Castelli sleeveless mesh base layer during the Norcal summer.
When I open my jersey zipper, the air feels cool on the mesh.
It is like a car radiator...
Welcome, those look like an awesome bikes.
They are what I call a "rode bike" because they can be rode on all roads. Dirt Roads, Gravel Roads, Cobblestone Roads, Paved Roads.
I look forward to...
Leaving Davis, 6 miles from the incident at 5:01 a.m. , I rolled by the crash site a few minutes after Fire and Highway Patrol/Sheriffs arrived.
The bike was in the road, but the I did not see...
After 5 fun years as Mesa Road Rest Stop Captain in Pt. Reyes on The Mt Tam Double, my hitch is up.
So, I am strongly leaning towards finally riding it. I will decide soon.
The Davis Double is this Saturday.
I will be riding it and I like to say "Hi" to Bike Forums folk that I see.
Anybody else riding it, that I might get to see out there?
I think that is a buy it and ride the wheels off of it good deal.
New, the Allez goes for $700 these days.
$550 for a the bike and accessories is not too bad.
My wife has a bike with 105...
I own a Novara Forza hybrid from REI.
You can get a lot of bike for your buck there.
Good component mix, and frames made for them by the same factories in Taiwan that make the big company...
What, me worry?
Not after what my LBS owner said,
"Here is your new bike, 100% charged. So you trust your system completely, do this for me:
Ride it until it goes nearly dead, you will know...
Right on! Great ride and great report. Chapeau.
Thank you for your responses. I am reassured that the 23 tubes will fit 25 tires with no problem.
I have ridden latex tubes for thousands of miles on 23s and I don't mind the air loss.
My buddy gave me two Michelin latex tubes that say 700 x 23 on the box.
There is no range given, like on many tubes, that would say 700 x 23-25.
I have used the Michelin latex tubes in 23s a...
This cracks me up, it looks like this guy got up to "The Wall" on Mt. Diablo early to stake out a good spot.
He looks so jazzed to see his hero Lance Oldtstrong powering to the top for the win.
I ride a 2013 Specialized Roubaix SL4 Expert (purchase date 03/30/13).
It has Di2 Ultegra electronic shifting.
It has given me zero problems and fast, effortless, perfect shifting for 11,842.7...
Eroica means heroic in Italian, and very fittingly so. Cappello!
(I would have said chapeau but, Italian style rules in this photo, and the Italian language is called for.)
It took me one ride with a road bike rider, me on my hybrid, to see the absolute truth in johnny99's point.
That hybrid was relegated to wall leaner status soon after and has just 1,700 lifetime...
Taken in the spirit it was intended :)
Welcome to Bike Forums.
You have long summer evenings ahead, it gets dark late that far north.
There must be a long riding season.
I heard the weather's good there in the fall.
+1 on the East Bay, all riders above, & me too, love putting in the East Bay miles.
This describes me perfectly. 190 pounds, and I just got well over 35,000 feet in a months time here in Northern California.
I go through chains at a rapid clip, 1,800 mile wear out has happened...
I have found it fairly universal that bike shops are all about bikes sales on weekends, not bike fittings.
This is especially true in the spring, their busiest time when people are buying new bikes....
I live in Concord and I ride 5,000 - 6,000 miles a year.
This takes me to, and through Martinez a lot.
Martinez is a wonderful town for cycling. It is very bike friendly.
Thank you for posting the picture.
I love that it dates to the 1895 era.
That was the era of the bike boom, when 3 million bicycles a year were being bought by a country with a smaller population...
That is the most enlightened and uplifting thing I have read online in a long time.
Thank you for your example.
