I need one of those cycling caps with Colnago on it. Ugh, wool?

I would love to make one of those gatherings some day.

I want to ride the highway into the gorge. Did that Jeep camping about 12yrs ago. One of my favorite areas.

The riding was awesome... the highways are beautiful and the traffic is really light.

The Lake Superior circle tour would be on hell of an epic ride.

On another note, we drove out with our 1971 pop camper and our 1991 Jeep Cherokee and that was fairly awesome... with more time I would have found some trails to explore with the Jeep although we also have a Dodge Ram 4 wheel drive at our disposal which is ideal for bushwacking.

Very nice Ridley there, Obed. I always liked the Belgian makers and Ridleys are some sweet bikes. Their cross bikes, like yours, have taken home a lot of wins in CX. Great choice!

I've probably posted better pictures of this bike, but here it is, my 1983 Raleigh Super Course, from tonight's ride.

I am -uh - over 50. Two bikes right now - a Masi Carbon endurance bike (Premieare PC3) and my beloved 1993 Trek 520. The roadie goes about 125 mis a week, while the Trek 520 does - well, it does treks. Like cross-country treks. And nice rides when I don't care about going 20+ mph all the time.....

....which is happening more often. The first pic is my roadie after a morning 30-miler. The second was taken in Florida, at some campground I don't remember......enjoy!

I forgot to post my latest ride. My spine doc said my 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon 105 was "too harsh" on my spine (I've been diagnosed with spinal stenosis) and he recommended getting a better carbon bike. My favorite shop had a 2014 demo bike available a few weeks ago and I couldn't pass up the deal (less than 50% of original price). VERY comfortable.

I recently(6 weeks ago) purchased a Fuji Transonic 1.3. This has proven to be a great choice for road rides and especially metric and century rides. The ride is not cushy, but the bike is fast and handles very well. I do have a steel All city Mr. Pink when I want an easier ride.

Awesome...do you really have all these bikes? I feel guilty because I've got two and thinking I may need three!

There's a big difference between EVO and EVO hi-mod ?

About $8K difference! How much did you have to pay your Dr. to write that note for your wife?

I would expect the Hi Mod to be lighter, stiffer (in a good way) and more refined, but does it really ride that much softer? Your Dr. must be a high end bike geek himself to even be aware that there are different levels of carbon bikes.

Greetings lexm! I find a lot of that going on in the 50+ posts; inspiring people on many counts. Guess we have no choice but become one of them or get left in the dust, asphalt, gravel, snow...

Another excuse to show pics!
Most of the rides I do are commuting and this is what dominates those rides:
[IMG]1991 Pinarello Montello 60 cm, on Flickr[/IMG]

Not only do I compulsively post the same pics, I also go to the albums and stare when I am not riding them.

This is what I ride when it rains:
[IMG]1997 Specialized RockHopper , on Flickr[/IMG]

My plan is to use this for commuting once I finish it:
[IMG]1983 Trek 610 60 cm (24&quot , on Flickr[/IMG]

Then when my OLD wife want to ride together, we take this:
[IMG]1994 Burley Duet in the raw, on Flickr[/IMG]

Just finished putting this together but don't have pics, all 105,
[IMG]1988(?) Masi Gran Corsa, on Flickr[/IMG]

Once in a blue moon I will take this out:
[IMG]1983 Colnago Superissimo, on Flickr[/IMG]

Should I want to go off road, I will convert the RockHopper in about 20 min to this:
[IMG]Picture 128, on Flickr[/IMG]
There is more but I am tired of the process!

The difference is between an ok ride with the EVO and a very comfortable ride with the Hi-Mod.
I rode my old EVO one day on my usual 22 mile course and did a test ride on the Hi-Mod the next day on the same 22 mile course. I noticed a huge difference in comfort.

He is!! He rides a Trek Madone. Luckily three of my doctors are cyclists. They all ride very nice road bikes.

He told me on my first visit to get a better bike after I told him I was a cyclist and was asking if I could continue riding. My wife was sitting beside me when he told me to ditch my EVO and get a better bike. He said my Litespeed was a good bike for my spinal stenosis.

The Hi-mod has more high modulus carbon fiber, in its frame construction, than the standard EVO does. For 2016 Cannondale is dropping the Hi-mod designation, and just calling the entire line EVO. Advertising at its finest.

SJX426, those are some seriously beautiful rides you have pictured there, Kudos. One question about the tandem, if that is what your Old Wife wants to ride, what does your New Wife request? No, wait, don't answer, please, this is a family place.

If you do most of your commuting on the Pinarello, where and how do you attach a rack and panniers?

Bill, I just checked Cannondale's website and they're still using the Hi-Mod designation.



They even have a Hi-Mod CX1 cyclocross bike.

A 2000 Bianchi Veloce.

My wife bought it for me new on our 25th anniversary, and it still runs great. This picture was taken this summer at a coffee and cookies stop near the Mike the Headless Chicken statue in Fruita, Colorado.

Backpack. If I have a lot of stuff, I will use the panniers on my RockHopper to transport large amounts of clothes. What I do is take enough socks, etc for the week on one day. On a bad day I metro in and then wear a suit to leave at the office. I also have another pair of dockers too. Then the issue is shirts. Those I can easily stuff as needed in the backpack. The key to packing good clothes is using the plastic Laundry bags as part of the folding process. This reduces wrinkles in a big way. Works well for travel as well. Put the bag over the article of clothing then fold.

I always take a pair of sneakers to use from the bike to the office/shower in the backpack. I also have at least two pairs of shoes at the office to go with whatever is there to look normal. Clothing is a PITA. Lately I have had to add an extra kit too. Warm for the morning and another kit for the warmer afternoon.

BTW: I have three file cabinets and an overhead storage at my desk, plus a place to hang my suit behind the door. The shower facilities have lockers for use during the day where I hang my stinkies and towel until pickup before going home. The locker is pad locked. This is DC after all!

They even have a Hi-Mod CX1 cyclocross bike.

Actually, it was my mistake, as usual. I went back to last month's RBA, its the use of the "Nano" for the high end models that got the axe. C'Dale said that all the EVO will be the same construction. As if I could afford even the Tiagra Super Six. As long as it isn't a matte black finish I'd love to own one of the EVO bikes.
