    Nice build. I have Dura Ace 7700 grupo on my Ti road bike. I love how fast and crisp it shifts.

    Thanks! Yeah, it is crisp now that I’ve got it all dialed in. I upgraded from a 3x7 Tourney group to the 2x10 DA. At the moment I do miss the granny gear though but I’m hoping that goes away as I get stronger. I thought I was going to miss the silly little downshift trigger in the top side of the Tourney but the new ones are so smooth and the up and down are very easy from the hoods and drops.

    Putting this one back together to flip, Japanese Schwinn Le Tour, 25" frame. Still needs tires & bar tape but it is in good overall condition -

    This one went out last fall, Univega Viva Sport. Still had the original bar tape and nearly mint overall -

    Fat bikes are now my normal bicycle mode.. Just a blast riding out on the beach, up dried river beds, or snowmobile trails in the winter..

    Here's my Kent Del Rio. Since the video was shot I installed a new hand grip shifter and derailleur which made it a better riding bike. I more into comfort. No more leaning over the handle bars give me the straight up posture and a comfortable seat and definitely no spandex or other stretchy fabric.



    If you haven't seen the backwards steering bike you should check it out.

    Well, I'm older than dirt now, and I still ride every chance I get. I became upright on two wheels in 1958, and I've enjoyed riding ever since. Now, I've never raced, never had the V o2 max... just enjoyed two wheels. Motorized, and not.

    I've had some dandy road bikes in the past, and traded a high zoot Chesini road bike for the one below, in 1993. This has been my ride ever since. It's a (antique now) PDG Paramount Series 30 MTB, nicely appointed with Richie and Shimano components. 3 years ago, I put a 30mm offset bar to more "hybrid-ize" it. It's been flawless for the 26 years I've owned it. I'm blessed with two greenways in central Indiana in which to ride.

    I still run an old Trek cycle computer on it, and 2018 showed me at just a tic over 600 miles. I shoot for 1k, but there it is.

    Bad pic, in low light.

    I go out and follow a 7 mile route every morning. I know it's a not a long distance, but I do work up a sweat because I like going fast.

    Has anyone converted 27" x whatever inch to 700 x say 32. Just wondering how to easily adjust the brake reach.

    I just installed a 750W Tongsheng mid drive kit on my Catrike. Next I’ll neaten the wiring.

    I am back on a bike again after 29 years (an adaptive sports festival had recumbents, handcycles, and tandems to try). Did fine on all 3, and a gentleman who had a Cannondale mountain bike my size, let me try it. Did fine. Now own a nice secondhand Trek 800 series singletrack. Great exercise for these stiff, spastic legs. Oak Ridge has nice bike paths.
