    Weekly bump. 75 miles today with 4K climb. Lots of heat and whew-midity to deal with. We had a storm roll through last night, so wound up adding to the ride's excitement factor by having to bunny...

    I find the narrower tires pick up more small debris that stick to the tire. I'm quick to take my gloved hand and knock off the stuff before it causes a flat.

    The wider tires tend to see more...

    +1 on SnoSeal for thick saddle leather, I used it on an old Fujita saddle and it worked out well. Not for use on those beautiful shoes from Port Washington, however.

    When shifting to the big ring, I am generally on the middle of the cassette. The rub is just in the big/big combo. The issue was that in raising the FD until the rub was eliminated, the chain would...

    I spent last evening tweaking the height of the derailleur and have it about optimized (given the tradeoff between height above the rings and probability of chain drop). It is up higher than the mfr...

    Good guess. It's actually across from Red Wing, MN along the Trimbelle River in Wisconsin.

    If you're near I90 and have your bike along, check out these trails. Easy riding but very scenic. I...

    I am experiencing a situation where the chain rubs on the bottom of the FD (underside of it) when on the large ring and 29t rear cog. It is not chain rub on either side of the FD, as raising the FD...

    Never underestimate the combination of deviousness and stupidity. It can work in our favor though. I picked up a nice gitane tdf for $20 at a shop. They were going to donate it as the "mechanic"...

    I may be giving the 100K a try. Should be fresh off the DD and seeking even more climbing.

    No matter what they size you up as, be sure to reevaluate it after a long ride. Some people fit for power instead of comfort. You will decide which is preferred.

    Were it me, I'd tune it up as is. Repack bearings, replace tires etc

    The bike is worth more kept as original. I'd find something either less valuable or more directly suitable for your son and...

    The youngest kid got us all up at 6am, so we decided to see how much we could pack in a day trip. Up to a state park, then to the Duluth waterfront, and a pleasant lunch. After that, the day got...

    Do what the pro's do. Have a pack of domestiques to keep you minty fresh at mile 75. Otherwise, don't worry about it. My splits on MMR on an evening ride will slam anything I try to do on the back...

    For touch up paint matching you can either go the Testors model paint route or since this is purple you can go with nail polish. Either way see if you can bring it into the store to do the color...

    My first official "training ride" for the DD this morning. 100K and 3500 ft climb.

    Will add a little to it every weekend, and toss in some shorter hill climb rides during the week.
