    Doesn’t matter where the shifter is, indexing is your friend.

    I actually miss my downtube shifters on my late 70s vintage Fuji Special Tourer 12-Speed in slime lime with stainless steel toe clips with white leather straps, suicide brakes, and foam bar “tape.” That bike was “da bomb” back in the day. Looked at lot like this one:

    All the others are steel (this replaces the sole aluminum). It's a bit amazing how responsive it is, even compared to the custom steel one that weighs only a little bit more. Hills are even more fun now. Happy.

    Only problem is that N = 7 and I need to get rid of one more. Think it will have to be the 1965 Schwinn Varsity converted to a fixie that only gets used on the trainer. If anyone has recs on the best organization to donate it to....

    This is the one I've been riding almost exclusively since moving out to Leesburg.



    Its a Motobecane century ti frameset, built with an ultegra hydro groupset. Its wonderful fun on the farm roads west of town and surprisingly adept on the pavement as well.

    Here’s my new gravel bike: Il Gatto della Tiggre. Having a blast with him.

    New bike day! I bought a Schwinn Paramount tandem today.

    I rode it solo from Capital Hill back to Arlington. Here it is on a stop to refuel at the Weenie Beenie after pulling that heavy frame all by myself. I briefly contemplated hiring a day laborer from across the street to be a stoker for the last two miles home.

    It's not too late to sign up for Grusk where the mission of the tandem bike category is "One bike, two riders, one mission! Go fast!"
    Top prize: Glory - maybe a trophy

    This is very tempting, but sadly, I have a torn quadricep that's currently preventing me from doing any serious climbing.

    Friday was new bike day for me! I added a Jamis Renegade Escapade to my herd. Bikenetic built it up for me with a few extra pink touches which I love. I'm really looking forward to taking it on some gravel rides and doing some light touring with it.

    And of course the ever important Madonna del Ghisallo was added to the bike to keep it safe...
