Very nice IF :thumb ... izzat Dan Boxer in the upper photo your in-progress build?

Not sure which photo you were looking at - but if it's the build of the Indy Fab (red bike), that's Matt Telemosse. He's an owner of my LBS, Counterbalance Bikes.

Dan happens to work there, too.

It's a whole shop of bicycling superheroes, designers and artists.

... the IndyFab is purty :tb ... I was wondering if this (above photo) was your "Dan" work-in-progress?

That is Boxer in progress.

But, it's not mine.

We're still sorting mine out. We ride together this weekend then beginning picking design elements.

I'm throwing a bit of a twist at him, because I'm after 700c wheels and discs. He's going to try to meld that into the design to retain the classic look.

From there, it's math to determine the steel loading, then it's off to Dan's workshop for crafting. I hope to take part in every step of the process. :clap

Just trying to be helpful ...
 
Jarvis, KiLeR, Hi!

No matter what, doing a Brevet or series of them is a great experience. That doesn't mean it's any better than any other type of bicycling, just another unique experience which is memorable. To me it's also sort of a private thing. Imagine trying to tell someone that you spent Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday riding 360 miles straight through. Their eyes glaze over without being able to relate or understand, just before they say you're crazy.

Kiler, your touring background will be key. Knowing how to pace yourself is so important. Most people who ride a lot can go out and do sixty, seventy, or eighty miles. But getting through those mileages without bonking, and riding on through to 125 miles, 190, 250, or 360 miles is dependent on more than just fitness. Eating, drinking, pacing and persevering is what's going to get you to the end.

Most everyone on this thread can speak up about endorphins, sore legs, pain in their feet, knees, butt, back, neck, arms, and head. There's no way around it, somethings going to ache. You gotta push through it. Yeah deal with it if there's a fix, like loosening up the shoes, or stopping and stretching, but get back on the bike.

I know this is unsolicited advice and I probably have more insight if you want it. Although, I'm not an expert, just someone who's been there. Certainly others on here will have great thoughts to share too.

Am I making any sense?

Enjoy,



Liz

Bimble and Askel, Hi!

WOW! Both of your events are AMAZING! I read through the Race Bible for the Dirty Kanza, more WOW! Good luck to you both at each event! I might have missed your mentioning it, but are these the types of events you each normally do?

Ride on!

Javarilla, Hi!


... only done 200's on it ... You ROCK! Beautiful bike too. I have a soft spot for IF's. Mind if I ask when it was built for you?

Enjoy,



Liz
