Giant CADEX CFR1 with Spinergy RevX wheels
The vintage bikes I build up and ride are ridden "hard" because I am big, my local roads rough and some of the tiny cog clusters on the back wheel require monumental effort from me to turn on slight rises and head winds. Also despite thinking I will go for a cruise around the block, near every ride I do turns into a full scale road thrash with self, its what I enjoy. So the bikes have to inspire confidence by always being strong. I'm OK with creaking (bike and me). They are all between 1979 and 1996. Apart from broken spokes and loosening parts all has been great. A pre start and post ride check are now my norm whatever the distance traveled. I will be interested to see how my latest build of old carbon, old aluminium and old glue in the form of this CADEX responds to my life on the road.
