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

Revisiting my Bianchi

I have a rather old Bianchi San Remo (steel frame, triple, Campy Mirage, 8 speed in back, etc.) hanging on the wall. And I noticed an extra set of wheels in the garage that I'd forgotten about. These are the originals that came on my Colnago. Chorus hubs, Mavic Open Pro rims.

So I did the obvious this morning and switched the wheels out. My Bianchi lost about 1 1/4 pounds just in the wheel swap! Not too shabby.

I noticed that the back wheel needed a little truing up and the brakes needed some adjusting. So I took care of that too.

I might swap out a few other parts later on in the Winter.

Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
