    Probably 9am would be my preference. It's a little cool for starts earlier than that in October.

    If people can only make an afternoon ride, I'm flexible.

    I updated a 73 SuperSport with modern components. It climbs pretty well given the weight and descending on it down fast hills is really confidence inspiring. It rides on rails down the fast...

    Realizing that no date will work for everyone, and with a few people opting against Sundays (myself included), I think we have these two to choose from: Saturday Oct 3 or Saturday Sept 26. Please...

    To get to modern times you need to move to something like 853. The trek lemonds used at least some 853 tubing in their builds (main triangle). KHS built a nice 853 frame that you can likely get for...

    Nope, was on the Anderson. I saw a few nice vintage bikes today though.

    Saturday September 26th works for me. By Sea Salt (Minnehaha Falls), would work considering that's one of the few spots in Minneapolis I can find.

    The grand rounds sounds good. Scenic and flat would be good for a fall ride. Will double check on date later today and let you know. Will also make sure we don't hit the same day as the park dept...

    My semi-OT bike with 50mm Campy Bullets is not so bad in a cross wind, but is an extreme handful going into the wind downhill. Every small shift of the breeze is felt.

    It has to be my Trek 760. It's my utility infielder of a bike. Shown below on an early spring evening ride.

    Paint is showing the age (more Revlon than Imron).

    Those Neuvations sold for just slightly more than that new, slightly less than that on closeout. No parts availability, so I'd pass.

    This was for real. The 100k had 5100 ft of gain over 65 miles. A few big valley type climbs reminiscent of the Kickapoo Kicker. By comparison the Dairyland Dare's 2015 course was around 4500.

    I don't find any notable reliability difference among the "fast parts" from any era (600, DA, Ultegra, Veloce, Record, etc). I get thousands of miles from each before anything gets fussy. Typically...

    That's a great park (I played in the woods there far too much as a kid). It's a bonus when my kids get to play there too.

    Thanks for the info, and comparisons. There is quite a range of cross bikes, but many of the modern ones are somewhat twitchy. That makes sense given the closeness of many cyclocross venues. ...
