Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I just texted my buddy to make sure it's Ti. I swear that he said it was but it looks steel with the lugs.

It was custom made for the original owner. It has a short top tube for its 69 size which fits my friend perfectly. Despite the original owner being from my small hometown, I've never seen the bike until today and I assume by looking at it, it was hardly ridden. It's DuraAce of whatever era, not sure, and the cassette shines like a mirror as does the other parts.

Looks like Dura-Ace 7400 from circa 1986, but I am not positive.

Easy enough to test with a magnet to see if it's steel or not.

That's an RD-7402, so post 1988. The brakes look like single pivots -with the Black Rubber Nub, so pre-1991, and of course DT shifters and no STIs. But that's not a Shimano crank - C-Record?

I heard back and it is steel. My mistake. IIRC, he said the cranks were 180 mm campy.

My friend is allowing me to post an email to him from Tom Kellog:

“Dear Steve:

That frame was built in 1986 and shipped to Russell's Cycle. I don't have a customer name. The frame tubing was a Columbus "SP" tubeset (main tubes are 1.0/0.7/1.0 gauge) however the seat tube is a straight gauge 4130 tube spec'd. 1.125" * 0.035". Crown is a Cinelli "F4", dropouts are Shimano "EF". Lugs are Henry James cast and the BB shell is a Cinelli. In addition to he unusual size of the frame, the internal routing of the derailleur cables are both rare and very slick. Have a great time on the bike.

Tom Kellogg
Retired”

My Honda SUV gets 35 mpg around town and has very good pedal response. I think that's very respectable. Not Saturn territory but what is?

The juxtaposition of the bottles makes it look like he's wearing shin guards.

Today's SUV is not the SUV of yesteryear. Much smaller today.

Except the Bronco. It's a big brick on wheels.

And as luck would have it, as soon as I got the Dodge, I had a spell of sciatica in my left leg that would have made working a clutch pure hell, so I guess it was all for the best. I do miss it sometimes, especially when I'm going about 80 on the freeway and there's no 6th gear to drop into to lower the revs.
I'm always happy to have an automatic when injured.

Feels funny that I'm about to, technically, boomerang. Not the normal way though. Not for money, or failure.

Yes. But if we buy a new car for me, it’s more practical if it’s one she can borrow sometimes. She cannot drive stick. I may have to compromise on this, but Vamos a ver.
