My latest..... a nice little Jan De Reus:




I've also made some changes to the Serotta CSI, mostly just upgrading to a modern wheelset and modifying an 8 speed cassette to fit the new wheel.




Then this week I've also rotated in the old Bob Jackson that is now sporting a nice Veloflex tubular setup.

1978 Trek TX 900

Just took my 1978 Trek TX 900 out for a 28 mile ride on my favorite local bike trail, the Neal Smith trail. It has good shade, good water views, and some decent rollers. It is a very pretty trail that gets a ridiculously low amount of usage.

Iím 63. An ex cat3 3 rider, dirt and street motorcyclist. Been down many times. Broken multiple bones. In deference to the damages done, sold my hard tail and went full suspension this week. Wow, what a difference!
