The USA coverage of the TdF has been exemplary.

Getting new parts fitted, even vicariously, always gives a little thrill!
Same here - I'm re-swapping parts from my wife's cheap first mt bike back onto her Trek city bike so she can use it tool around. Then putting the original parts on the mt bike to sell it, and after that I can clean and fix up her old Raleigh mixte. That should finish the project list until I have what I need to build up a new road bike. Very therapeutic!

New bike coming soon, I hope? Those rings look like perhaps they've seen better days!

I cancelled the order because I chased a used Superfly ... that I missed.

Now I want a better bike then the new one I can afford. So, I'm keeping this heap while trolling the local classifieds for another Superfly in my size.

Sometimes you just have to add some lightness to the bike, right?

Berk Lupina saddle. Handmade in Slovenia. 132mm wide, round rails, 70 grams. This is a one-way ticket on the pain train, but it's mine now!

Dan,


Is that seat supposed to be comfortable at all...or just light? That looks like hell. The seatpost would be lighter and probably just as comfy.

The lightness is simply amazing... 90 grams feels like it is literally floating. Currently, I have a Fizik Antarares R3 (carbon rails) @ ~ 160 grams, and a Fizik Ardea Versus MG Rail @ ~ 265 grams. So this bad boy from Slovenia is a massive difference. In fact, it is a greater weight savings than if I upgraded framesets to a Dogma. Zoinks!

I'll try to get it fitted this weekend and give it a try. It'll be hard to assess the comfort (so many puns) until I do something in the 80-100 mile range, which is unlikely this weekend due to weather and family obligations.

I'm not sure if I'll put it onto my 'fast' bike or my 'climbing' bike.


.

p.s. I expect it to be massively uncomfortably... but half the fun is trying new stuff!

Just to throw this into the mix as the exact opposite end of the bike spectrum. I wanted a traditional "Dutch" style bicycle to run errands with at my shore home. After much investigation, I came upon the Pashley Sovereign Roadster. While it is as heavy as a piece of granite, the ride is serene and the workmanship beyond compare. They are entirely handmade in England using traditional methods. It has a fully lugged and brazed frame and the paintwork and details are just beautiful.


I just need a pipe and some tweed..

That thing is stunning! I bet it does indeed ride like a dream (on a flat surface, in cool weather, with a slight tail wind, and drafting behind a double-decker through Piccadilly Circus).

Very nice indeed.

Indeed. I think I've ridden lighter mopeds My wife thinks it is entirely absurd. I love it though. It is a very memorable and unique experience...especially since you are pretty much eye level with giant SUVs.

HOWEVER... if you are going to drive on hills...you have to figure out a way to go downhill both ways

Anyone using an InPower? I was offered one today to test. I would have to change bearings and crankset, so I'm gauging if the effort is worth it.
