What road bike do you have?

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

That's awesome! I love Ellsworth, but I didn't know they made a road frame. A guy I know works for them somehow.

They just make the one frame, it's called the scant.
I really am enjoying the bike, and I got to go down and check out the shop too which was excellent.

Well i'm new to the forum, live just outside of Jackson, TN and have been riding off and on since the mid 80's. Just recently started back riding after a long hiatus due to injuries outside the cycling arena. This bike was built for me in 93 and i just haven't had any reason to buy another. Built by Peter Dreesens out of Schwanksville,PA w/ Columbus prestige tubing , nickled drop outs, Syncros stem and post and campy veloce 8 speed. Am thinking of converting to 10 speed. She has served me well over the years

Follis Photograph - Updated


Since the last time I posted some photos, I've made a few changes to my Follis road bike. I've added a retro water bottle cage to the handlebars, rigged some yellow brake cables, and flipped them so that my right hand now operates the front brake, which is the way the bike was originally set up, in 1962. So far, I've managed to keep from killing myself trying to keep which hands operate which brakes on my various bikes.

Anybody have suggestions on what to use to burnish the lugs, which are starting to noticeably corrode?

More heart-stopping photos and story here: https://icyclist.blogspot.com/

Thank you icyclist, by the end of summer, I plan on changing out the chain, cassette, pedals, Skewers
and post clamp, all to Ti/gold color. Hopefully making it lighter and giving it a more balanced color schemes.

I put the same exact set on my bike and have around 1000 miles on them. I trued up the real wheel 1 time around 600 miles, I"m 200 lbs and do a lot of standing and mashing the pedals on hill climbs.

Love is a word I use sparingly, conserving it only for my future wife and these R 28 Aero4 wheels…. All joking aside I have no complaints, they role Forever!!! Along with the Michelin Pro 3, sometimes I’ll find myself cruising/costing a parking lot using my phone, wondering when was the last time I pedaled.

As for durability,

A guy at my LBS informed me the hub flange is thicker, so that could be one of the 2009 upgrades.

I like riding till I find spots to practice Control Drills. Trying to take turns as hard and deep as I can. Stuff like countersteering, when you lean into a turn, while control the steering a out the other way. So I’d say my 185lb person has put some stress on the wheels, without any problems yet.
