    Would have been more impressive if you had only ridden 3.5 miles previously this year. Just sayin'.

    Dudel, your jiggery-pokery of the 42i type surely led to your success, and for that you have my...

    Niiiiiiiiice. Too tall for me, but a great, easy introduction to butted 531 frame/fork and the world of tubulars too. The BB axle and cups can easily be lapped in situ with judicious fine grinding...

    Not attempting to hijack the thread - this really is a question about cadence too. As a 64+ person who rode and toured on an old-style 42-52 front X 5 speed rear, and having spent quite a lot of...

    Hoo-boy this is a matter of endless rancorous debate. Why someone on a bike would ride the center line without the intention of making a left turn is lost on me. I for one cannot maintain the 35 +...

    The price point seems good - I'd go for it if the road test is favorable and the drive train has the right ratios for you.

    First test ride with my new old bike

    I got out today to put in a short two hours on my Legend Ti - and it is proving its worth to me already. I managed to avoid all the sand/gravel traps and potholes. Even with the new CST Pro tires @...

    NOS88, I'm not surprised that you're toast after that - after all, it takes a bit of conditioning to sustain 16-18 mph average - at least it does for me.

    Wow you can see the route that DD tracked to keep himself fit! Welcome home DD, and Salute! to you.

    ps awesome image of Fuji. I didn't realize it has that side vent.

    Ron, good luck sorting this out. If it were me, I would probably go for it - at the very least, the doctor would have more information which may turn out to be a help later on.

    Piratebike,
    Your second comment sounds to me as if what you really need is to talk to a cardiologist who can answer they questions you posed there. A second opinion is something you should actively...

    I'm with you! I've had the same Perfect FW bodies installed on my two road bikes since 1983 - only swapping out cogs as they wear, and occasionally flushing and re-lubricating. It's a pity that it's...

    But I think that the Record ones are also hardened by heat. I also think that the radius on the Record front cones is slightly larger - IIRC 1/32", to fit larger balls. I can definitely sympathize...

    I'll join the chorus - even though I'm allergic to coarse wool, merino or other fine wools are my favorite for staying warm. Now that I have a cedar chest, they last more than one season!
