Sub24 on gugie mobile.

Last Sunday I did a trial over night on my new gugiefied Austro Daimler. Tonight I go a bit farther, only about 25 miles, with company to jubilee college state park.

Coffee stop on the way and I locked up the brakes in an asphalt parking lot. Mafac Raids are the bomb! Plus the garbage truck didn't kill me.

Great setup on the AD! Glad you and the bike made out of the parking lot alive.

Once in the park there is a short but winding 13% decent. The bike was totally stable and the brakes inspire great confidence. I'm so happy!

That's not a Jubilee, that's a Cyclone. Wait, never mind...

I was thinking I should bring the grand jubilee out here just because.

Should be nice weather tonight! No rain, cool temperatures, etc.

The park does attract a shiny old bike now and then...



For an area that is rather flat, the area around Jubilee park (west of Peoria) has a surprising amount of rolling hills. They can be a lot of fun if done correctly, or are just a fun way to do intervals. This is Brimfield-Jubilee road, on the north side of the park.

I only wish the shoulders were better but it's a lovely spot.

Definitely return with the Grand Jubile! Don
Had mine for a long time, ridden in most States West of Mississippi as used to bring along whenever we traveled. Found another frame with near perfect chrome a few years ago, hope to overhaul both this Summer moving best parts onto best frameset. Don

I installed RAIDs on my new frame. I only got in a couple rides before sending it out for paint (pick it up on May 31st — woo hoo!), but they do indeed seem to be da bomb. Looking forward to more miles on the bike this summer, hopefully without any garbage truck tests.

Wish I had room to keep bikes I don't ride anymore, but alas my house is too small, and I'm glad someone else is riding them. <sigh> But thankfully I get to look at them and their cousins here, so thanks for posting.

OP's AD is kind of a sleeper, a similarly perfect bike that gets less respect, I think because of their more restrained aesthetic. I love the BCM crown, and the brazed-on RAIDs.

BTW, a Raid without brazed-on pivots is somewhat less "bomb". I just want to manage expectations, because some people have found them lacking when used with the bolt-on étrier. I think the brazed posts should be considered almost a requirement.

To be fair, the young guys I rode with were more than happy with our pace. Fully loaded touring bikes on 13-14% climbs however short did wake them up Saturday morning. We may eventually do Johnson Sauk as a group.
