Thanks. She is a Vitoria model Vintage, small spanish builder focused on MTB and CF but with a little Reynolds 531 steel production. I bought this NOS in 2016 and I built it with Veloce 8s FD and 39-52 crankset. Ultegra 8s bar end shifters and Alivio mtb RD (polished) 13/32 cassette. Brooks B17, double bar tape, Origin8 classic road brake levers.
Comfy, reliable and easy maintenance bike. And I love her colours!

It was a rare day that I did not have to carry a computer or lunch -- just a notebook. No need for a pannier, so I took the Gran Premio.

My commuting bike -- 1982 Miyata LeMans Criterium (Miyata 1200?) frame, mongrel wheels off another bike, Suntour Cyclone II and Sugino transmission, flipped 'n' snipped handlebar as fitted when I bought it -- in its regular place. Unwashed, as usual. Changing from tubulars to clinchers (and specifically Gatorskins) was a rare concession to common sense.

No shizzle, just a Gazelle.



It isn't what I'd call my prime commuter, but I like to ride them all.

I brought my Lemond down from High Falls to NYC last night. I think I'll keep it here and take my McLean back up there.

Today, I rode the Lemond to work. I had stiff headwinds, yet my travel times were short. And yes, I had headwinds in both directions, dammit.

I usually park my bike outside at work, but today is graduation, and the campus is all fenced up, and I would not have been able to get through, so I entered from the edge and brought my bike into my office. I'm not sure if it's allowed, but no one told me it's not.

I have a C17 Cambium saddle on my 1974 Raleigh International. I think my butt is in love.

As posted in other BF threads, I rode my '86 Miyata 710 to work yesterday on 'Ride Your Bike To Work Day'... It is a much more 'spirited' ride than my trusty old '75 Fuji S-10S...

Here is the Puch with a few changes, the most notable being the Belleri porteur bars I recently found at a garage sale coupled with a 90mm Atax stem. I think since I last posted, I also added the Suntour ratchet shifters, old B15 saddle, and swapped out the axles to through axles so I could use the original wingnuts. Otherwise, all the same...
