I do not use particularly high gears, but I like to have something in the mid-90 gear inches, such as 50/14 (96), 49/14 (94.5), 46/13 (96). A 50/16 equivalent would leave me spinning out.

As for...

Finally got around to getting pics of my 85 Voyager I bought from bark_eater earlier this year. There are a few minor rust spots here and there but no dings. Not bad for a 35 year old bike. It came...

"New" toy!

I just received a 1982 Trek 720 frame/fork, same size as my old 1984 610. It does not have canti posts, so it is definitely 1982. The plan is to purpose the 720 into the same roles as the 610 with...

Don't have regrets - think of it as pairing out the bikes that keep you from having a few really nice ones around. Shoot for bikes at or above the Fuji Royale II, and you'll be good.

fast but scary

My average speed is faster on my SC but the degree of flex (EVERYWHERE) approaching 30 mph keeps me nervous. I can confidently break 30 on my other 80s steel road bikes (Trek 614 and a Nishiki...
