I used to ride a Klien Rascal back in the early 90's till it was stolen.After that I kinda lost interest in riding.I miss that rigid little bike....*sigh*

My new Giant impresses me more everyday though.It's such a great package for the money.Everything works and works well.It's anything but light and it isn't the sleekest but damn what great little town pounder!...

That's why I haven't bothered... I know better!

I'm waiting for the Force gruppo to come out!



'Course, when I'm JRA, I shift my 9sp D/A just like I did my 7sp D/A... The two-tooth jump is 'just right' for my legs. Racing? Its nice to have that one-tooth gap so you can hopefully find the 'right' gear for conditions.

In hot pink, I presume? I had one of those, my first "real mountain bike". What a tank.

Just found this thread, because I was trying to go cold turkey and stay out of JoMomma and quit wasting time. Oh well, lasted about two weeks.

In my youth I was an USCF Cat II roadie and raced Italian steel, which were the bikes of the day. I also had a Raliegh track bike that I rode early season. Very harsh and light, for a steel bike. I finally put a front brake on mine too.

Only bike I have now, is my Ritchey Cross bike. It's very hilly around here and the lower gearing comes in handy, since my fitness level is at about 2 out of 10. I refuse to buy a triple, I still have my big racer ego to protect.



I did have a trike for about a month, but sold it, because it was just too
slow uphill. (And it had a triple on it).

Nice garage!

I have a Gunnar Crosshairs (steel) cross bike. Nice ride!

I've always wanted a Ritchey road bike but never have afforded one...

the bike is hot

Hey Perry,

You are one lucky guy--not just to get the Basso for a dinner (a $2K value I bet) but that it fits you, or at least it sure looks it's your size.

It looks like it's set up for some hills, too, with the triple and the big freewheel. You ought to get another freewheel for park riding.

Didn't see your post until the end of the day. Went to Harriman but for WORK. Honest. Wash and posing another day.

It's the right fit for my 5'8" greek god frame

I noticed you're a leather saddle brooks type of rider, do you reccomend them?

Re- the freewheel, we need to chat after I try one of yer steeds out..

I've never ridden a Brooks, but the guys I hear with em love em. They take some extra care and feeding tho. Not to mention breaking yer ass in!

Hey! Any of y'all wanna trade a Ritchey WCS/Pro (or similar) 27.2 x350mm seatpost for either a Thomson or Syncros no offset SP? I've determined that I wanna move my saddle back again and the Thomson I have on the bike now ain't got enough room.



I also have a 26.8 D/A seatpost for sale/trade if someone's riding old skool bikes and needs a very new (NIB) very light, very kewl D/A seatpost.

They seem pricey though, guess they last a good long time. I would think since they're so slippery, you'd have less friction i.e wear on yer ass... (?)

the biggest draw to the Brooks is that it molds itself to yer ass after a few thousand miles of riding it. Got funky dimples on one side? Brooks'll compensate by stretching 'right there.'

Too bad they're boat anchors!
