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

Here is my new Pake C'Mute with Rival drivetrain. Love it so far. Ride like a lounge chair on those 32s. Lame phone pic. I should probably get a better one up.

Nothing special, just a Nishiki Royale



Got a couple of questions though. What kind of choices do i have for some indexed shifters for the rear derailleur (8spd)? Not looking for something super expensive as im not trying to break any records or anything. Just tired of the gear guessing with the current friction shifters.

More than just that! What's with the big chain ring? And the stem is super short. The rider must be like 5' 1".

Here is my newest entry into the Steel Club: 1983 Fuji Opus III with 10s Ultegra/Dura Ace mix. Mostly built from spare parts. This is now my secondary bike, replacing the Univega.
