What was your ride choice that day? Not clear but looks like the Wilier?

You got it. I was expecting wet roads so I took the aluminum.

Oh, and the beer is fine too!
Nice car! My dad had an MG Midget that he bought with the money he had saved while in the Seabees in Vietnam. He passed it on to a nephew when I was born who subsequently wrecked it when I was a kid. Rest up after that fall and feel better!

Alas it has the horrible looking plastic 'safety' bumpers/fenders which was a requirement of tightened US laws at the time.

As ever with C & V it looks better with chrome (here's a nice example I photographed here in London, UK last summer)

Thru the local woods with my buddy Tim and his KOF Della Santa. Tim had Roland design this bike to ride like his 70's Paramount but with greater tire clearance. Of course Roland nailed it.

That happens to be the last time I was out, too. Rain, then snow, then more rain

Just hoping for a gap in the precipitation at some point...

Both bikes are nice, but that DS is near and dear to me.

I ended up with one by pure good fortune. Pleased to add that it rides great and I am able to run 700x30s.

I have Strada Biancas on it atm and it is on its way to Austin, TX for my visit with family.

God help me if they have goats heads.

Pretty dang cold out today, but sunny and no wind, so I bundled up and got 30 miles in for the first proper ride on the Heron.

Rode around my neighborhood on my new to me “ended up with” mid eighties bike...original tires, so I didn’t ride any further than I would have to walk home when the tires blow up!
They didn’t blow up...I pushed them kinda hard at the end...


No cracks!

No snow here in SoCal. Beautiful 33 mile ride thru two canyons, then out to Santa Paula's Rabelais bakery. Big group today, temps mid 50s to mid 70s. A little rain really greened things up. Another great ride on the '73 Super Course.

California winter sky.

Thru the lemon groves.


Bike parking at Rabelais. My Raleigh (green bottle) among all the carbon and aluminum.
