Hey guys,
I started a new thread. Hoping this would inspire some of you to come out in the spring for the next party and ride. Check it out.

Thank you again John for being such an outstanding host and the follow-up video. Outstanding bikes with awesome people. I don't think it gets much better than that.

Great video. Sorry I missed the party. Iíll be looking forward to the spring gathering.

it looked like a Ď93 SBX frame on that track bike. They didnít really have a model name

I'd love to join your proposed ride, jjhabbs ; but in such company I might be ashamed of my mixed-up, plebeian bike (not to mention my C+V ignorance), and far more decisively I only join rides that start 50 km or so from home whereas yours would start 10,000 km away. Oh well.

Still, I have a little suggestion. How about a ride report some time for your spiffy, 96-spoked Jack Taylor?

Ideally this should be a world tour. (As it happens, I'm now reading and enjoying Fred A Birchmore's Around the World on a Bicycle -- a heavier bike than your Jack Taylor, and with greatly inferior braking -- so such rides are on my mind.) But it's not a good time for one -- and I'd happily settle for a report on a 50 km jaunt. Any time!

Hey Hey,
It doesnt matter what your riding. Everyone is welcome. Im actually thinking of doing a three day tour with the Jack Taylor and doing a video or two on it. I cant wait to get that bike right and running!

God Bless

John
