Ok, I get it. They've just approved starting the "St. John's City Cycling Plan" here which will be a first. I think I know of 2 public bike racks in the whole damned city-one of the worst cities in Canada as far as cycling and driver awareness are concerned. But it's home and I ride wherever whenever. Excellent technical mtn biking close to home too.

That'd be a 3 or 4 day trip for me.

Actually, pedaling down 10,000+ ft. in 38 miles took approx. 45 minutes. Had to sit up and use upright upperbody and arms to slow bike down instead of braking that might heat up the rims and cause a flat.

Between the elevation of 6500 ft. and 4000 ft. or so, it was in the rain/fog/clouds.. cold and wet, visibility down to 20 ft. at 40+ mph.. passing cars in hairpin turns.. fun fun fun...

huh, the old brooks saddle dressing came in a similar tin, albeit with a different label, but the dressing itself was a fairly bright translucent red color. it went on clear.

Yeah, you haven't been able to get the original pink stuff for many years. I used to love the way it smelled, the new stuff is not as nice. The price has also changed! used to be ?? $4 a can? now a 40g can is $20.

A vintage well broken in Ti Swift that has been kept in a plastic bag continuously slathered for the last 6 months. I'll switch it out with my early `70's vintage, Professional. I keep this one covered in Proofide also.

Thanks guys.

It's an old mans bike.

Vintage Bianchi track bike that I built to replace a better one that was stolen years ago, it's very stiff! tied and soldered wheels and sewups will do that.
