Ideally I would prefer a frame with horizontal dropouts as the chain moves easier without a tensioner. The frame is a Titus (known for mountain bikes) from the early 90s. It uses a 1" fork tube so I had to get the front fork built up as I did not want a carbon fork. The front fork is Reynolds 953 stainless.

I like radial spoke patterns so I built the front that way; the rear is a 32-hole 2-cross.
Uh, oh, he really knows what he's doing.....I'm definitely busted.

Won't be the same without you! Let us know if you can make it down for a ride this way, and we'll schedule it... I'll probably organize something in mid September, or mid/late October.

Thanks, but my back was so bad last year, I could barely get my Kvale out of the trunk.

Pleased to report it is on the mend. We just completed a tough ride from Obertauern near Salzburg to a ski resort by the name of Katschberg in Austria.

Toughest ride I have ever completed, but beautiful area for sure.

Pics when I return!

I would love to see all of you Chicago area guys this fall though. What a beautiful city in the fall.....

Nice and flat along the lake as well.

Last big ride before the DD with perfect conditions in Chicago. I left the House before 6AM. Temperatures started at 61 and ended at 80F. Dry cool air with a slight headwind for most of the way out. Sunny Skies, light traffic, and a slight tailwind to finish the morning. 78 miles in 4:40 moving time. I made it home in time for lunch :-)

Damn you! I'm stuck here at work, and just finished a delicious 9" meatball sub (with provolone and spicy giardinera) from Bari. So, I'm gaining two pounds while you're losing five!

See you in the morning....

Did a triathlon, bike leg was just under an hour for the 20 miles. 11th overall. I'll take it.


Nothing to do but adjust, lube, pack and drive to WI.

Redid our ride from last Saturday. 80 miles and about 6k climb in a bit under 5 hours. Gotta drink more water as I do this stuff. I guess I'll be hitting all the stops of the 150. Tonight, begin the tapering (happy hour and a thick steak).

Did about 55 this morning. Flat here, only about 1600 ft. Cool in the morning, drank only 2 bottles, should have had a third. About 3 hours. Still gotta loose 10 pounds, but that ain't gonna happen.

TrainingPeaks taper is a bit much. Tomorrow is supposed to be as nice as today. Stupid not to ride.

Light stuff for me from here on out. Our weather here is fantastic for riding, so a complete stop isn't gonna happen. The heat is off as far as the rides I told myself I gotta do (a nice feeling). I can see the MTB doing a few trails tomorrow, and will instruct a couple indoor cycle classes next week too.

And I'm riding with you guys tomorrow...ulp.

What is this 'hill repeat' thing you all are talking about?

For gosh sakes, isn't getting up the damn thing in the first place enough? I hope to do it once, do it right.

Well Al, no hill repeats on our ride today, but the 38* miles made for a good recovery ride ;-)

*the timer was off for about 2.5 miles in Highland Park as we returned.

Good ride this morning, and good to see Big Chainring, El Guicho, and Chicago Al (I see Barrettscv on a regular basis). Mrs. Bibliobob did 51 miles, in the end. A beautiful day for a ride.....

Thanks, barretscv...that was a great route and one I'll be using parts of in the future.

Perfect day for a ride. So nice...might have to do it tomorrow too.

OT for the Chicago guys- have you noticed an increase in police crackdowns in Lake county?

I was out early on saturday and got pulled over. I was riding solo, but there was a group of 20 about 50 feet up the road from me. A local office pulled in front of the group and let everyone go with a warning. Later, in a neighboring community I saw a group of 30 who were all getting citations.

on the plus side, wx was great and I cracked off a nice 60-miler.

I've been saying all year that Highland Park (in particular) does not like cyclist. I now put a foot down at a stop sign if I think police are lurking. I still have a bad habit of entering an intersection when the light is red if an absence of traffic permits. I should stop doing that, :-(

I am feeling good about my rides this year even if not real low, as I have lots of miles and plan on many more by the time the DD roles around, so I think I will be able to handle most hills, but if not I can always walk...and there is no shame in that right?

Honestly @BarrettSvc...through it would be cool to have Tom on a 6 series, me on my 7 and you on your 9...good Trek CV showing?
I decided today that it's better if I bring the Serotta Nova Special X to the DD. I'm feeling a little emotional to learn that Serotta is folding, so riding the Serotta Nova Special X is an act of solidarity. My Trek has an out-of-true rear wheel, so taking it to the DD is not wise. We can make a American-made photo-group with all those Treks and a few others;

The Serotta is lovely. For sure we have to do the American Classics Pic. Wow to the possible end of Serotta.

This is a direct quote fresh from the DD facebook page, see: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dairy...e/245301726076

"Three days ago we found out about fresh chip coat plans (pea gravel) on the majority of the eastern 150K+ routes with the possibility of road work on ride day. We hope you enjoy the selections that we've made to avoid these roads! We will be on some great new roads never before covered by the Dairyland Dare!

Here are your new 150K+ routes!

150K: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2979953
200K: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2978524
250K: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2980001
300K: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2980029

50K & 100K routes are unchanged from 2012".

However, the 100k on the Dairyland Dare website also looks very different from last year!?!


The 150km is crazy new and includes a gravel trail!



The turn-off takes Y to the Military Ridge trail! It's very firm and flat gravel.
see: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/militaryridge/

Roads Removed Due to Chip Coat (Pea Gravel): Dugway, Pikes Peak, Mill, Bryn Gywren, Ridgeview, Meadowvale, PInnacle, Snead Creek, Nelson, Lakeview (west). Roads Avoided due to Chip coat: Knight Hollow, Ray Hollow, Mellum, Oak, Roberts, Maple Hollow (closed due to bridge outage).

This email went out to DD registrants late this morning;

The DLD is coming up this Saturday! Rider notes are posted at http://www.dairylanddare.com.
ROUTE CHANGES - PLEASE NOTE:
On 8/1 we found out about fresh chip coat plans (pea gravel) on the majority of the eastern 150K+ routes with the strong possibility of road work on ride day. The 50K and 100K routes remain unchanged. For 150K and above, new routes and GPS files are now posted on the Routes and Terrain page of www.dairylanddare.com .
We hope you enjoy the selections that we've made to avoid 9 pea gravel roads! We will be on some great new roads never before covered by the Dairyland Dare! Note that there are a few sections where we will connect from one road to the next via the Military Ridge State Trail. This trail is hard packed, crushed limestone and is perfectly rideable with 700x23C road tires.
On the 250K and 300K courses, Snead Creek, Nelson Rd, and Lakeview Rd have been replaced by a new loop including County Z, a paved bike path, and Hillside School Rd. There is also a detour to avoid Maple Hollow Rd which is closed due to bridge work. This detour is shown on the updated maps and included in the updated cue sheets.
See you Saturday!
