Show me your BLACK bike!

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

It's been eight years. Changed the rims and riding Contis these days. Otherwise, pretty much left alone.

Smoothie

The latest setup on my Soma Smoothie. The fork is a Soma touring style, cannot remember which model. I got red because it was on Ebay for $60 less than Soma's price. I mounted small, on the light side, front and rear racks and bags. Switched tires to 27mm Vittoria Open Pave clinchers and latex tube. The ride is even smoother now. I needed the racks and bags for storage for taking off or putting on clothes layers, as needed. I have a set of fenders I will be mounting soon.

At Bethany Beach

Indian River inlet

Holt's Landing SP


I have over 2000 miles on this bike since I finished building it back in May. I think it is the most comfortable, smooth riding bike I have ever owned. The weight is on the low side for what it is.
