I was being a little cautious (not something I'm known for, when gravity is to my advantage) on my 32mm tires; I was getting bounced around a bit. He was riding cushy on huge tires and a suspension fork.

Overall, I think 35mm tries would be the sweet spot for me, at a little over 200lbs these days, but I might ride my '72 Nishiki Semi-Pro, which is already comfortably shod with 38's.



For 95% of this ride, fat knobby tires is just way overkill, IMO.
Beautiful bike. Oh yeah, I wouldn't use knobbies but 26 x 1.75 road tires. Why not keep the 38c tires? They seem perfect for the job.

AAAaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh. The food. Glorious, best rest stop food EVER.

But don't let that video fool you. Sure, I get a little teary every time I watch it, and some of it was just like that. But this ride is HARD. You need BIG TIRES (or a big fluffy butt).
There are HILLS, especially on the way back (yeah, Nine Mile Hill is actually more than nine miles). And then there's the hail. Yes, hail. The wet kind.

Despite all that, I'd do this ride again in a heartbeat if Mrs. Doc hadn't threatened me with A Fate Worse Than Death if I did this AND Coppi this year, cuz two weekends in a row..
So, 2020. I'll be back.

Dave, the more I look at those Breton style jerseys..the more it grows on me. Especially the LS one. I didn't order one when I registered but how am having second thoughts. I assume the are wool. Are they? Who makes them? It would be pretty cool to have a long sleeved one.

Before reading this post, I had never heard of this event. But, if I were to describe the perfect ride, it would probably sound exactly like The Cino.

A vintage rando would be perfect for the Cino.

Woolistic makes the jersey and they are 100% wool. I know a long sleeve might seem hot to some, but I can actually use it in most weather, not just in cool weather. (But there’s an ultralight SS version for those who need it.) I love how wool breathes better than Lycra. I used both for a summer in Houston, TX and the wool won hands down. The Lycra had to be tossed because of the funk it acquired. In the world of bikes, steel is real; in the word of garments, wool is cool. (Ok, that’s the best rhyme I could come up with.)

But I digress. Message me and we can get a jersey worked out, I’ve already done it for one registrant.

Now if money were no object, I’d get the Saint James Matelot fisherman’s sweater. But at $225+... They made a groovy sweater for Velo Motors a while back, and were part of the inspiration for this version.

Yeah I can't do both this year because of work but I want to do this ride. Which size tires would you use? Gearing?

Maybe it's time to do a 650b conversion . . .

We were very comfortable on 650x38 this fall. I loved 34mm tubulars a few years ago.

Go as low as you can for gearing. I’ve done 42x26 before, but the hills were a killer. My wife gets by fine on 30x28 using a triplizer from Red Clover for her Stronglight 93 crank. Check her ‘73 Gitane in my sig.

Damn. My sister in-law choose that weekend for her wedding. Thanks @mountaindave for keeping the flame lit. I encourage all to attend and add on "Going to the Sun Road" in Glacier National Park.

I built Schwinderella with Cino and Eroica specifically in mind. Overkill for Eroica, but prolly perfect for Cino.
650 X 44 Compass tires, 48-36-24 triple with an 11-34 ten speed cassette, 6207 friction shifters.

Like riding on a cloud surrounded by unicorns farting rainbows...
