    You're wrong, Curtis. You didn't see a winery. You saw, or should have seen, two wineries. And I don't think you can make wine out of tears and lactic acid, but I would not be surprised to find...

    Because that's the kind of party the organizers feel like throwing. The idea is to ride on old-fashioned road racing bikes. Pretend you are an Italian road racer of Francesco Moser's time or...

    This is a great example of the whole "YMMV' concept. The Vitus 979 and 992 have never done anything for me. I'm glad it spoke to you, and I know there are others out there who have owned, ridden...

    You are paying for a chance to ogle at a bunch of really cool bike-related stuff with a bunch of like-minded members of the tribe. If you are an equipment freak, this show is your wet dream. If you...

    I agree that riding on Niles Canyon on a weekday, especially during commute hours, is a truly bad idea. On a weekend morning, I have no problem doing it from Sunol to the foot of Palomares. I agree...

    This. Ed doesn't do e-mail, but he does return phone calls. His prices are not cheap, but are reasonable for the quality of the work. He is both a frame build/repair and a paint guy. Knows his...

    Last year, I saw zero effort going into checking bikes or gear. Go to Classic Rendezvous and check out the photos of the 2015 Eroica California - there are links to tons of photos on the main CR...

    Way to go on making it up Palomares. And don't put yourself down - it is not Alpe d'Huez, but it ain't easy, either. You made it, and you enjoyed it, and that is all that really matters.:thumb:

    Back in the day, you could get a Paramount in any color Schwinn had. Violet, Campus Green, Kool Orange - and yes, Coppertone - and more were there for the asking.

    Listening to music is great (well, listening to some music is great :innocent:). Riding a bike is great. But doing both at the same time has always struck me as a really bad idea. It just isn't...

    I've had a Rolls Titanio do exactly the same thing. But so far, only one (and I have five on bikes at present) so I don't plan on changing my saddle preference anytime soon.

    As for the tires, it...

    There were two, maybe three patches of snow, all about the same size, all within 100 yards of each other on a part of the road just before the summit that won't get any sun until April or May.

    Hey Scott, I recognize that patch of snow. To be fair, there were two, maybe three little patches like that on The Mountain, and they were in the perpetual shade of the north side of the final...

    Both of you are 100% correct. The right Silca can look great, but it's only worth a poop as a pump with the Campy steel head. Zefal pumps cost less and work much better, both for inflating tubes...

    53 miles. Almost 2k feet. In the rain. And you aren't being paid to do it. Methinks you are pushing up against the boundary between "hobby" and "insanity."

    For which I salute you.:beer:

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. But now you have a decision to make - does the Picchio go with you to Eroica California or the Bianchi Competizione?
