It's suppose to fall off the cliff early next week and return to normal temps, so I got in one last 50km ride today - out to Assiniboine Park the check out the scene. Oldest park in my city - development started in 1904, the park officially opened in 1909, and is located at the edge of the Assiniboine Forest, along the Assiniboine River. The park covers 1,100 acres (450 ha), of which 400 acres (160 ha) are designed in the English garden/landscape style. Main pavilion is in the background...

Pretty awesome fall day on my new-ish Giant Roam 1 if you ask me!

Cheers,

Great pic and position of your bike.

Always much prefer to see the bike in the pic of the wonderful scenery.

Raleigh Cadent 3 (2016)

I'm getting back on a bike following hip replacement surgery. My previous bike was a Trek 7200 (2005). I have always ridden a bike with a frame that was large for me in standover height in order to get the reach I needed (I have a long torso and short legs). I ran across this bike at a super deal Thanksgiving weekend on the RaleighUSA website. The standover height is perfect for me and is easy to mount even with the recovering hip. I plan to change out the handlebar stem to give me a longer reach and more height. I might also consider moving from a flat bar to something with some rise and a bit of sweep back. Of course, I will also change out the seat and pedals. I am starting a bicycling PT program recommended by my surgeon so I will set the bike up in my trainer and use it for that. Hopefully I will be out on the road with the new ride in about four weeks. I need to work off the pounds that I have put on over the years from little exercise due to the previous hip pain.

I have to post up a picture of my Giant Cypress DX. It has the factory full fenders and has a "German" purpose vehicle look. It's residing in the basement now since the weather has turned ugly. Old Gary Fisher mountain bike will be my "outside" bike once I'm ready..


Pic to come.

Hi to you all out there. Not exactly a Hybrid - more like a Bespoke for me and by me.
This Benotto is running on 140mm cranks,they were necessary after having total left knee replacement in November 2007.
I was unable to get any better than a 92* bend at the knee exacerbated by having short limbs with a 23" inside leg measurement.

Hopefully there is an image attached of my recently fully refurbished Benotto Modelo 850.
I have tried uploading other files but keep getting a weird message about a missing token.


I contacted admin via the page that came-up to report an issue and then it vanished and could not be retrieved - so I tried again.

Success with the one image BUT BUT BUT why would it not upload the default maximum of 5 images ?

Why is so small ?

Nearly ready

Just putting this together now - just needs cabling, brakes and a few bits and bobs doing.

It's a Specialized Sirrus as some of you maybe guessed and I think it's a 2007 / 8 ish model.
Nothing left of the original - even the paint. In fact there isn't any paint on it !

Hi andcb. Now that is a classy looking steed. It looks as though it might be a Polished Aluminium finish.

Do I see a Mavic hub in the image of the rear wheel ?

I have built a few flat-bar Hybrids over the last few years after actually buying a brand new 2010 Claud Butler Levante,I then bought a Scott S50 Flat-bar Hybrid and then built myself a Fuji Track Frame that would double-up as a Flat-bar Hybrid and then ended selling the Claud Butler Levante just before moving home to Northumberland in May 2011 - then I came back to West Lancashire.

I have reluctantly had to do some serious culling and those individually wonderful machines have now all gone to new homes - I am left with just my Benotto and my Steve Goff - for now.

andcb 12-18-16 10:34 AM

Omg.....
 
I particularly love the RED one !
Which one is that ?
The others look really good too - don't be insulted but the red one...
my eyes went straight to it.

Did you do ground up restorations like I'm trying to do ?

If I had more money I'd do all the things that you did !! hahahaha

This also confirms we're all slightly mad in the North East....yes me too !!

andcb 12-18-16 10:36 AM

Omg..
 
I can see FUJI now I'm looking properly...

andcb 12-18-16 10:38 AM

Hubs and stuff
 
Sorry, the wheels and hubs are DT Swiss Diecut R20 fyi...

Hi again andcb. The red one was bought as a NOS (brand new) but assembled show piece Fuji Frame (Track Legal) from an old roadie that went into business with his sons some years earlier and then went their separate ways but still had an association. I think that they are on E'bay as angpatten and are somewhere S****horpe way I believe.
I recall paying 100.00 for the frame complete with headset and bottom bracket fitted.
It was a fabulous bike to ride and especially as a fixed wheel Flat-bar Hybrid.
The bars complete with levers and cables could be changed over within 30 minutes. It was sold to a chap in Lytham St Annes.

This one was an interesting build (attached image),bought as a very very tidy 48cm Saracen Tour frame that I put carbon forks on. It was a fabulously frisky ride and very much resembled my Claud Butler Levante.

At 71yrs young I am to old to be wasting energy in the dance-halls chasing maidens,so I use my energy and interest in riding lovely bikes instead.

A few years ago I lived in Ellington,Northumberland and regularly rode the coastal route between the village and Druridge Bay via Lynemouth and back along the A1068.

Just to follow up a bit, I changed out the handlebars for some Wald 896 cruiser handlebars and changed the stem to an XLC 110mm adjustable stem set to 40 degrees. The handlebar was only available in chrome and I like the black look. I think I will follow up with a wrap of black handlebar tape. The seat is a Bell 810 that I swapped over from my Trek. I also added some Zefal half toe clips to help keep my clodhoppers properly positioned on the pedals. I did have to change the brake and shifter cables for some longer ones.

I have been riding on a trainer for about a month (boring) to get the hip flexible and today I took the bike out on the road for my first ride. Great to be outside again. Really love the new ride. The rapid fire shifters are much nicer than the old twist grips on the Trek and I think I will really like the mechanical disc brakes especially when I am out riding on some wet roads. Plus the bike weighs a few pounds less...however compared to my weight and girth, it is negligible.
