    Good idea. I DNF'd in my first attempt at randonneuring - a 200K permanent. Luckily, I was able to muster some intestinal fortitude and complete my first 200K brevet about 4 weeks later. Sometimes,...

    Among other things, ha! Some cycling buddies and I have a running joke that adding red to your bike makes you faster. I'm sure the tape will come off by summer, and matching brown (or orange) tape...

    Very interesting. This goes to show any bike can be a brevet bike. Is that suspension fork somewhat firm? I couldn't imagine riding my mountain bike w/ suspension fork very long.

    Very nice, turky.

    Well, I think I may start cobbling together parts to do a 7 speed STI build. Thank goodness Tourney stuff is cheap as chips!

    Sorry for the bump, guys.... but I have a question.

    Like many of you, I have put 126mm spaced 700c wheels on the world voyageur. I desperately want to put some STI shifters on the bike, and was...

    It's absolutely possible. I have been on two centuries where mountain bikes were being ridden. Heck, I rode 135 miles with a girl who was on a city bike​.

    I finally got my 'new style' Dia Compe 610s set up properly, and I'm fairly pleased with the results.

    The matching mini-rack, though beautiful, broke not too long ago. Velo Orange graciously took...

    Are there any CR-18s that are polished? I know mine are not. I agree that VOs would probably be higher quality, but they're also more than twice the price for a complete wheel-set.

    I've come to notice that.

    What is the difference between a RANDONNEUSE and a SPORTIF, anyways? Is it that the randonneuse has specific braze ons that the sportif does not?

    I was quite surprised...

    From what I understand, the select line of saddles has similar thickness to Berthoud saddles, which are also pretty thick. I've got over 1000 miles on my Berthoud now, and there is still no sign of...

    Very nice write-up.

    With my bar/stem combo, I can achieve a 45 degree back angle on the tops, even with my saddle level with bars. In the drops, I can get closer to 25-30 degrees, which is about...

    That's a helpful little read.

    I'm just surprised that I wasn't able to correctly calculate total reach of TT+Stem based on my older, smaller frame when moving to a new one. Apparently, I can't...

    I wish I would have known of this sage advice before I dropped $60 on a Nitto stem that is too short. Bicycle geometries; HOW DO THEY WORK?!

    Just how 'oversized' are we talking here? I can straddle the top tube flat footed on my horizontal top-tube bike, and I've got maybe three fingers of seat post showing.

    On my previous 'modern'...

    ISO: 80mm or 90mm 26.0 clamp diameter quill stem.

    If you've got one lying around, I will gladly pay for postage.

    I've got a 26.0 Nitto Deluxe if someone wants to swap as well.

    Since it's the 'natural' color, it's not meant to be very heavily dyed, if at all. Have a look at the brooks select line and you'll see what I mean. Depending on where there is friction on the saddle...

    Yep - I've got a BioPace triple on my bike - 50/44/28. I've actually come to prefer the half step + granny gearing. Though admittedly, I pretty much use it as a 44/28 double. I can count on one hand...
