I don't own one, but I ride with a small group of guys most Saturdays. One of them has a Haanjo that he modded a bit.

The ride was 47 miles and all gravel. We went from Cannon falls in southern Minnesota to Lake City. Some of us stayed overnight and rode back to the cities the next day. I took my Bilenky and we swapped for the day.

The big difference is the weight of the bike. The Diamondback handled more like a "slack" geo road bike than the Bilenky. The Bilenky is a true tourer that I use as an all roader, while the Haanjo felt sportier. The tires make a big difference and the WTBs are much nicer than the Nomads I ride with most of the time.

I carried about 20 pounds loaded into the front panniers and the Haanjo handled that easily. One thing I would do if I bought a Haanjo is consider a dyno hub right away. The stock HED wheelset is overbuilt and rather heavy. I wouldn't cry about replacing that wheelset.

If we ride this Saturday I can get some pics for you.

FWIW I checked the Performance site and the bike is on sale atm. In addition, members get an additional 20% off towards accessories. I'm sure Performance will likely get a Black Friday deal cooking, so you might be able to save more.

I suppose a Y-foil is considered vintage among the modern crowd. Secretly want a Y77 in the Elvis gold. Do something wild and equip with Sram e-tap wireless, Nimble tubular wheelset.

Other is a 2018 LeMond Grail.

The sloping top tube is not a modern revelation.

Victorian era~


Check out the radial lacing, micro drive and saddle setback.

The recent posting reminded me an updated version of Alan bikes still exists. They always looked like space aliens, even BITD. Still do.

True enough. Funny how we assume some things as new. Electric cars were tried as far back as 1828. Tubes have sloped up down and probably sideways for a long time.

This Salsa is touring bike pretty cool. The flat and drop bar versions have different geometry in respect to the bars, the flat bar bike has thumb shifters. Triple butted steel and even comes with 38c Pasela PT's. REI sells them.

Took a chance on this forlorn 2007 Novara Trionfo frame I found twenty minutes north of Seattle at a new & used (complete bikes) bike shop nestled in among the ubiquitous trees and quieter neighborhood. Had been for sale on CL for a long time. 62cm size measured 25"/63.5" in traditional measuring methods as this frame sported a horizontal top tube. I had a Cane Creek Zero Stack integrated headset laying around from an abandoned almost-a-bicycle project four years ago, and by dumb luck, stumbled upon an online retailer selling a matching (OE spec) fork (Columbus Carve, full carbon, also Carve seat stays). It wound up as the friendly rival of two lightweight builds I did nearly simultaneously. Its 'opponent' was a Trek Emonda ALR (aluminum with carbon/carbon fork) that came in a full two pounds lighter (16.2, no pedals).

Trionfos of this era could be had with either 6600 Ultegra or 7800 Dura Ace (usually on the Team Trionfo, if my scavenging for scraps of info is worth anything). Naturally, this got my 10s Record/Chorus/carbon+black themed parts and away we went. Check that tight 4mm tire-to-seat-tube gap! Sexy.

This is an excellent bike. In ways, the spiritual successor to my Peloton. Taught, yet dampens vibrations extremely well. Here, we are getting it to work well with a 13-29 Campy cassette, instead of the 12-23 Record Titanium I had on before. It kinda likes the Record cassette, but I want to ride up hills with this fun bike, so...we'll see.

I'm keeping this one.

My Fargo still gets a lot of use. In fact, it really needs a rear down, and the left ergo is cracked. Going to run some sram hydro brakes on the next build. It'll get some love over the winter.

For modern steel-

I have a Black Mountain Cycles Monstercross frame that is from about '14 thats been my gravel bike and what I ride around with family. Heat treated double butted tubing, fits up to 50mm tires, and stable geometry.
It is currently stripped down and will soon become a commuting and touring frame since the geometry is so comfortable and it has mounts for front and rear racks.




Then there is the frameset I learned to design and build in a class a couple winters ago. Its Columbus Zona tubing thats a mix of 8/5/8 and 7/5/7 for main tubes, plus s bend chainstays. Its become my main road bike due to the fit(and all that damn time invested in it!).



Most recently, I built up a new gravel frame as I want to try out a carbon fork, disc brakes on the road, and also wanted to have a commuting/touring bike since I had sold my older touring frame earlier this year. A new gravel frame would make all that happen and I decided to buy instead of working on a garage build frame thru this coming winter.
Its a Fairlight Secan which is 853 main tubes, s bend chain stays and shaped seat stays in 4130 tubing, 44mm headtube, and a tapered carbon fork. The frame has clearance for 47mm tires and will never be mistaken for being lightweight, but neither will I, so it works. I transferred over almost everything from my gravel bike except for new wheels(thru axle), disc brakes, and an ultegra RX clutch rear derailleur to reduce chainslap. It will weigh just under 23.5# in ready to ride setup, which means it's shop floor weight is 22.5#. Given the size, Im more than happy with that.
I just finished the build a couple days ago and need to add tape. First though I plan to take it on a couple of shakedown rides to lock in the handlebar height.

My 2002 Specialized Allez, a 2007 Specialized Roubaix and a 2013 Culprit Croz Blade.

My first "modern" bike.

My comfort ride Roubaix.

I hate the look of the top tube bag, but it sure is handy.

I'm having an amazing time rehabing my old first love of a De Rosa, but... my daily ride Speedvagen rules. Most comfortable bike I've ever ridden, even better than my last Domane albeit a lot more aggressive handling which I wanted. At this point I have no carbon fiber rides other than the seat tube, fork, and bars on the SV.

Only modern/graphite bike I've ever owned- Canyon Endurace.
It's what gets used on really fast centuries and club rides.
Also a pretty decent gravel bike, takes at least 32's.
