So everyone knows the story about the mismatched shift levers...
I just could not get the Veloce front shifter work properly with the new crankset/BBs. Chainline is good, just seems the spacing is off. I chalked it up to the new Veloce "escape mechanism" just being too inflexible for the new setup (it worked fine with the old cranks). So, I yanked the 07 Chorus lever off of my single bike, and put it on the tandem. I guess I will upgrade the levers to Chorus...
Anyway... Mt Hamilton was in this years Tour of CA. We rode up the front side (which is what most people do). The Tour of CA descended the front side. The mountina begins at a mere 200 ft above sea level, and rises to 4200 feet over 19 miles.
Here's someone else's Garimin data from the same ride.
So anyway here are my pics (two posts).
The beast (notice the mismatched Chorus/Veloce levers )
Stop before the last climb... Pics of Ruth and I..
