One day when I ride this, Iíd like to do it on some 25c Gatorskins.

In the spirit of the thread, hereís a selfie from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Not today though as it has been snowing.
Hi Spaghetti
Thank you too, for your warm hello!

Re l'Eroica, it is really down to your abilities and weight. If you sit nimble on your bike and your system weight is around 70 Kilogramms you can get away easily with 25C Contis. I rode 26C Grand Bois Cerf blue extra light and was fine. Others, more bulkier guys such as a friend of mine was very pleased with the Challenge Paris Roubaix, a 27 C tire with loads of resistance. We both never flattened a tire in the entire week we stayed there. Put in approx 400 mi in that week. Hope, that helps...

Here I am before going out with the 1977 Polish national champion. I'm still sorting the X. Next time it'll be the Mega Tube.

Just got back into bicycling after over 25 years of being distracted by other things in life. I've been having a wonderful time with my Workcycles Omafiets around town and to work, but my husband reminded me that I also have a perfectly good road bike that's hung in the garage since 1995. She's a Puch Mistral Professional that I bought new in '88 when a LBS closed and all inventory was 50% off. So I took her down, replaced the rotten tires and cleaned all the grease and grime off. Took her for a spin and I'm happy to have re-discovered her

Great bike and re-start, but this thread needs a pic of you on it.

, what a nice looking Puch, great bikes all the way around. Yours looks like it just got pushed out the door of the LBS. As said, pics should include you, if you want.

Welcome to the C&V also, great to have you aboard.

Took a little time to get to Dallas area this weekend to visit the Superdrome, --- a place I have spent hundreds of hours at when learning to ride the track but have not been in a few years







The community college the facility is located on is not wanting to nenew the tracks lease for 2018 so I had to go show my support for the campaign to save the track

view walking down the athlete's corridor --- and I hope it wasn't for the last time


Likewise for racking the bike once again (A "C&V compliant" Waterford )




There was really an impressive sized bunch here today and I hope it goes a little ways towards swaying the powers that be

The '74 Motobecane Grand Touring I just brought back to life, and the much younger Fuji Absolute 2.1 hybrid that got me back into this madness...

Your info says you're from the "burbs" of Chicago.* That is most definitely not. Those switchbacks are wonderful as is the backdrop. Where are you climbing there? Lucky dog.
