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

My garage (9 bikes) is nothing but steel. The Fuji is the only one that's built of stuff from this century:



and the Rossin is my favorite of the bunch (I'm running SPD's since this picture was taken):

I have a few steel bikes.

1985 Miyata 1000


1985 Trek 520


1976 Schwinn Voyageur II


Late 80's (I think) Fuji. This one will be sold.


1989 Pinarello Montello. Probably going to sell this one too. Not the ideal size for me.

It's my understanding that if a world championship is won by a rider on a particular brand of bike, that manufacturer is entitled to put the stripes on the bike. But I'm thinking that this could only be enforced by etiquette, right?

True.

And Eddy Merckx won his 1971 and 1974 WC on a De Rosa steel and Francesco Moser won his 1977 WC on a De Rosa steel.

I'm in.

Both homemade, 531 tubes, Henry James lugs and shells.
The green one is my commuter, built November 2000.
The silver one built August 1996 now has a Chorus 10 sp. crankset (cracked the SR right arm) and
a Concor Ti saddle.
