Nice Mt. Washington pictures Sir_Name, I was on the summit that day. My son did the climb, pretty chilly for August. Here's a shot of my grandson checking out my current project. I think he approves.

Thanks, otg. How painful did your son find the climb? I thought there were more cyclists on the road than usual on the way to Pinkham notch that morning.
531 Trek in blue, eh? Enjoy the project - looks lovely.

Nice way to spread yuletide cheer, northbend. Great pic.

If that's anywhere near Philadelphia, I'm gonna guess it's fans reacting to the Seahawks game last night...

ha! this was the night before the game. Chip Kelley is doing a great job but we've got a year or two before we can beat teams like Seattle or Green Bay. Is what it is. I wasn't surprised by the outcome of that game.

Very nice bike, Grady. How many Chris Kvale frames have you had now? I spotted one for sale in my size last year, but I didn't have the scratch for it.

BTW, I thought you were a Swift/Regal guy?..

Hi Roger,

Thanks! I need to knock it off with the CKs. I have three riders atm and a frameset that I wish I could find a suitable owner for someday.

However, Chris K. won't build forever and I really enjoy the way his framesets ride for me. As they say, it's in the tubes.

Maybe a little like you enjoy your beautiful Stan Johnsons?

As for the Swallow, I keep trying these once in a while. Swifts and Regals are simple choices for me, as they are like an old pair of Zamberlan boots I have. They just fit.

I've logged a little over 6,000 miles this year, and My two SJs have accounted for 2/3 of that. Not particularly light, but just fit good, probably like yer boots.

Yes, likely true.

Nope, just Grass Pants. Short but nasty dirt road climb up to one of the local cell towers. A couple of sections over 20% near the top. Nice view though......

Sounds like Cino all over again - complete with the beautiful view at the top

I'm hoping for some good climbs/photos at the top when I'm in AZ here in a couple weeks.
