Today, I put on some shorts and took my Del Rey out for the first time in about 6 months. I had replaced it with a Le Tour, but I couldn't bring myself to sell the Fuji in that time. As much as I love yellow (and dislike black), the Fuji is the one I'd rather keep. Everything on it feels more solid than the Schwinn, and it's lighter, too.



I went about 22 miles, and stopped at the hardware store on the way back to get the p-clamps I needed to mount a real rack. I really like this rack. It's just a cheap Sunlite, but it's sturdy, not too heavy, and looks good on an older bike, I think.

That is a beautiful build of a classic Fuji. Let me guess: Nitto Technomic stem, V.O. Milan handlebar, and Ergon GC-1 Biokork grips? It reminds me of my Royale, on which I used a similar setup. And that Sunlite rack is excellent! It's very similar to the Soma rear rack that I have on a couple of bikes, but I think I actually like the Sunlite a little better. The tubing bends are more graceful and flowing. Very nice bike indeed.

Thanks! I was inspired by your setup. I've used regular Ergon grips before, but I had no idea how good their Biokork grips looked on vintage bikes until I saw them on yours.

Yes, it's a VO Milan handlebar and Nitto stem, but I looked it up in the catalog and it's actually a Nitto Young stem... which looks exactly like a Technomic stem to me. It was neglected but all-original when I bought it.

What a nice day to ride a racy italian...

....with a light tubular wheelset and tires not too wide.

The Cedar River is running high, but the dry&warmer spell has allowed a few good rides last 3 days.

An old man has to stay active, don't ya know.

It's been cold here. And there's been ice and slush on the ground from our recent snowfalls. So it's been hard to ride.

But yesterday, I said the heck with it, I'll ride anyway. I'm upstate for three days. I could have ridden the roads but I didn't want to wipe out where there are motor vehicles. I could have ridden the bike trail, but I wanted hills.

So I went to Lake Minnewaska State Park Preserve, one of my favorite places. I rode one of the carriage roads, which are gravel. The one I usually ride is uphill from the lower parking lot to Lake Awosting. At the Lake I just turned and went back down. It was just 5.5 miles round trip, but there was plenty of climbing, and riding on gravel is more of a workout than on pavement. I worked up a good appetite.

For most of my ride, I listened to a bluegrass group called Southern Rail. The lead singer and guitarist happens to be @jimmuller. His sweetie is one of the harmony singers and the bassist.

On my way home, I spotted 18 live deer and one dead one, the most in a day for me. Around here, I average one per day. Later in the evening, I saw three more live ones.

GPS tracks

I chose the wrong month for shaving off my beard!



Water is flowing fast because we had a big melt right before this latest freeze.

Got the old Raleigh out today for a 42 mile Malibu run. Nice day, little breezy, mid 60s, but had two flat tires. Pasela PTs are not as bulletproof as I thought. There was a movie shoot going on, and the cops stopped us briefly while a big camera truck towed a '62 Corvette by. Don't know who the "driver" was. Also big waves today. Check out the beach house spiral staircase on the left, going right into the ocean.

It appears they were shooting an episode of Lucifer.

Bridge over the Elwha River, my lunchtime ride today. Twenty miles total on the old Lambert; seems like a lot this time of year! My longest ride of the year, so far. Dry spell between rains, but it hasn't been below freezing for a week and a half. In fact, just under 50 for the high today, almost had to wear a long sleeved shirt.

Good call. I heard a security guard mention Lucifer. Never heard of it. Last year we saw "Feud" being shot on the same stretch of PCH (Betty Davis vs. Joan Crawford). Lots of cool 50s cars there too. There is always something going on over there.

Is that a 3 speed bike with a bar end shifter?

Nope, we're all fine with the Shimano Alfine 8 on this bike. Something I'd have never considered buying at the retail price but it was just too cheap to pass up on the stuff built into a sturdy set of 29er wheels for only a benjamin. Here's more on the permutations of this bike.

Wow. Awesome shot. I am so jealous - I believe that part of California is probably the best place in the world to live. I've been there several times, and always find something new and incredible to see/taste/experience. You are a lucky soul and an excellent photographer djk. Bravo!
