[MENTION=306057]obrentharris[/MENTION] I love that orange color on your bike

Today rode the Bottecchia home. I must say DA 7400 is smooth and quick. I'm liking it alot and the saddle is super comfortable.





If the last pic is too Rated R I'll take it down.

Thanks for the nice words! I never thought I would own one of Mark DiNucci's bikes, custom made for me.
It was a gift from my wife!

Grand Junction, CO - a taste of Main Street art and the paved ‘trail’ to Fruita. Humorously referred to by some locals as ‘the sidewalk’.

River running muddy and fast.




Some places were close enough to the river to fall in.

Palisade and the East Orchard Loop


4700+ - 3 days to adapt should be adequate


Very friendly LBS.

Would not want to launch into that muddy river, oh so swollen.

I got back about a half hour ago and took a shower... Nice 14.83 mile ride down along Riverside Dr along the James River here in Richmond, VA. I clipped on a smartphone holder onto the steering stem and enabled Strava. It was dead on accurate...

14.83 miles... 56:04.... 15.8 mph

Rode some of the RiverBend Park trail from the GJ 29thRd at C. Nicely graveled parking area. But it is a State Park with fees (just to make riders aware. Again the nicknamed The Sidewalk is deserved. But car free and some benches and some picturesque spots.








Hunt area + MUP **********? Only in the american west.

So my son came home on spring break and asked to take a bike back to school. He choose my red univega. He’s a distance runner so I’m glad he’s getting cross training on a c&v bike. Anyways he sent me this pic today and I thought it was worthy to share with you all. Cheers, Kevin.

Drove out to Arches National Park and rode the bikeway off of the “auto/RV/truck busy 2 lane distracted by ogling the sights” highway. Saved the pics for the most eye popping spots which are not accessible from the bikeway.

Great shots, I was lucky enough to visit Arches and other great parks in the Southwest back in 1992 - wow nearly 30 years ago. Beautiful country.

Continuing the Grand Junction, Colorado trip......
Felt the need for a bunch of miles, which eliminates rides with too much steep.
So a steady climb on the Batavus (9sp RacingT)
I-70 Exit to Mesa (Hwy 65 - east of Palisade) and rode to Vega State Park.

i will edit some pics and post a 2nd grouping.




Wide open, low traffic roads. A river road.


Zero malfunctions.


1908. Survived a lot of cold winters up here. Never saw an elevation posted, but a few wide spots in road for ‘Chain Up area’.

Gentle climb up for 30 miles with tailwind and gentle crosswinds. Gentle descend with afternoon winds increasingly stronger and blustery in the winding canyon spots. Sunscreen, liberally applied was a good idea. Metric century in one 5 hour ride; extra 6 pre-miles gives daily total equal to this year’s age.




Hiding your cell tower in plain sight must have been important at an area sports Park.

I took the Legnano $100 Challenge Project Bike on the Pasadena Velo Retro Vintage rise. Great day to ride 27 miles, nice turnout. Crazy traffic from some Korean teeny bop concert at the Rose Bowl. Good day on the bike though!
