Thank you. Yes it is Super Record equipped and 6 speed. Not hard to shift these, just need to ride with one hand.

I bicycle road raced in the 1970's and even then because of my frame size I would switch over to bar end shifters.

I like bar end shifters as well. I am on the hunt for a set for Campy equipped touring build.

Here's my Clyde bike. My buddy built this one for me out of parts he had laying around his bike shop, after he got sick of working on my always-broken Huffy MTB.



Yeah, I know it looks WRONG, but I'm a believer in putting good parts on junky stuff and being comfortable. Sooooo, here's what we're working with:
-Ragley mountain frame
-Mavic downhill wheel out back
-SunRingle Black Flag out front
-Continental Town and Country tires front and back
-mechanical disc brakes (was fitted for hydraulic, but leaked upon install and we opted for simplicity)
-Metropolis cruiser bar
-BMX style brake controls
-stem extender
-carbon fork
-1x10/42T drivetrain
-Wellgo pedals, I don't remember what model

Awaiting install: Brooks B17 saddle


I've got 2000 miles on this setup in the last few years, and have knocked out two half-centuries in the past week. She just eats up the miles. If I had more time to ride, I would.

ATHENA perspective... ...here's a few from my collection:



Jamis Dragon Comp. I got a great deal on this frame on clearance. Reynolds 853 frame - very comfy and fun

My latest infatuation... I've had the bike for years, but in paring down my collection I decided to keep this lovely 92' Trek 950. I'm changing it up for a bit more upright riding style and replacing the wheel set to 36 - hole Mavics.

Salsa Vaya. Love...love... love.

2004ish Santa Cruz Juliana.

I ride a Specialized Roll Elite 'Low Roller' edition. Definitely a crazy bike, I was looking for just the regular roll Elite in matte black, but they are impossible to find right now. Either way, I love it!

My workhorses have been two Electra Townees and have put thousands of miles on them and decided to get serious. So happy with my new bike and only ridden it twice before I had to have surgery; hoping to be on it daily beginning in September. Put some tubeless tires on it! Just love it!

Been working my way back down to 200 from 237. Got a little carried away with the steaks and beer during the lock downs

Down to 215 with a few more lbs to go.

Some of the fleet. I have been riding my fixed gear a lot and sadly neglecting some of my other bikes. However the Phil Wood just needs to be tuned up and I go to mess with it and just can't get it back to right since I swapped freewheels and added in the WTC RoadLink but I am not giving up on that, it will work I just need a mechanic more skilled than I.

All the bikes seen above are running handbuilt wheels all 32 spoke my for more ample derriŤre. The Phil Wood bike is Dura Ace 7400 mix with Phil Wood B.B. and hubs laced to Velocity Rims with Phil DB Spokes. The fixed gear is running Sugino 75DD, EAI Gold Medal Cog and Izumi Super Toughness chain with eeBrakes with AC New Sheriff hubs laced to H+Son rims with Sapim force spokes. The Foundry Ti bike is running Ultegra Di2, eeBrakes and White Industries hubs laced to H+Son Rims with Sapim Force spokes.
