    I don't think he was. At the time he thanked Roche and abandoned, they both had numberless bikes, meaning they both changed bikes.

    Here's how it works; the first rule of being a hipster is complete denial.

    For example, I'm not a hipster or anything. I just happen to have a vintage bike and a lot of cycling related t-shirts...

    If you want to ride it like this the price is not bad really. If you're looking to built something special and a "I made this bike" kind of feeling you should probably look for a naked frame and...

    You should check the cable pull ratio of the 8 and 9 speed systems. If they have the same pull ratio, you can trick the shifter by adjusting the H or L screw of the RD. Shifter will click for a 9th...

    One of the worst hipster bikes I've ever seen. Incomplete and lacks taste. Don't get me wrong, those are my comments about the previous owner, the hipster who doesn't know how to hip.

    Nice looking bike.

    It hurts me to see that it has a better finish than my 2009 Trek 1.2. The tube junctions look very smooth.

    Is the rear brake cable internal?

    Thanks,

    I guess I live in cycling heaven. Our roads have amazing views and very few traffic.

    From what I've read, Olmo started as a small family manufacturer and kept it that way. They still...

    Can't say that they fall under the "exotic" category. Trek used to base their team in Luxembourg, Europe is definitely a huge market for a brand like Trek.

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I guess the RD can handle 26 but not sure about the 28. It's pretty short cage. I guess 6 speed also means a new chain so for now I'll stick with what I have.

    70 something Olmo Gentleman

    As I mentioned before on a tubular vs. clincher thread, I got myself an old Olmo Gentleman. I've been meaning to post some pictures but I was lazy. Today's the day!

    What do you guys think about bananas as an on-the-saddle snack? For the last two rides I take with me a banana cut in half and eat them 50 minutes apart (my rides are 150...

    Well, they're steep even with a 42/23 steel vintage bike.

    Low Intensity HR training / High Cadence

    My brother just gave me a HR monitor as a present and since I don't have a power meter (probably never will) I decided to reshape my training around the HR monitor.

    Until now, my training was...

    My regular training route passes by his gate. Never seen him though.

    He's known to ride one of the following: Harley Davidson something, Piaggio MP3, Colnago MTB.
