Yeah, I thought I'd seen it, somewhere.

For 2012, I've had much more fun

I used to go on MTB rides trying to pin it and get through my trails as fast as I was able to. This year, I've managed to slow down a tad, and spend more effort to search for fun obstacles, roots, whoops, sections I can manual/wheelie, little rock hops, etc. This change in mentality has made the sport much more fun, and I'm much more excited to try out new spots. Even learned how to make my 6'8" body & 30lb AM bike scrub Bubba style.

I use strava every ride, but just so I can see how many miles/week I'm riding and feel good about it.

Also tried lift served DH... If you've never done it, take my word... the videos on Pinkbike do the runs NO justice... those guys are truly insane. I did 6 runs and had trouble standing afterwards. The physical toll that sport takes on your body is incredible.

Bikes parked for 2012, can't wait for 2013. Gotta get a mount for my VFR too!

Just threadless adapter. The Cinelli cracked while I was climbing up past Harbor Point. I thought the 42 was my 39. Wasn't. Hurt me.
The crank rings and BB are Campy C Record, as are the 32H hubs. Headset is an old Specialized. Brakes are Dia Compe Something er others, team issue stuff. Seat Post is Campy Super Record, Seat varies. The white one is an old Rolles. I killed a couple of Sella San Marco's. The bike has seen a load of miles. This model was our team bike in 1983/84. Alexi Grewal won the Olympic road race aboard a Pinarello but it had aero tubes and the team price was quite a bit more than what I paid for this bike frame only. Oh, and the seat tube clamp bolt is campy as well.
Shifters are composite from I don't remember where, I think they were free. When I ran a computer on it I had Avocet and ran the wire down the back of the fork tube and bonded it to the tube with silicone, (electronic grade) so the two wires lay flat against the chrome fork with no ghastly looking zip-ties. It has a ding at the downtube from the brake smacking it when I was blown off a time trial course with a rear disc on at about 40 mph. We hit a tree after rotating around my center of mass in the air so I was upside down looking at the tree. That ended my club record run. I sold the time trial set up, disk radial front sew up and TT bars/controls. It will likely become art in my garage. The threadless is ugly.

How to make a ride more work. Ride uphill. Ride recumbent trike. Mount new studded winter tires and run at minimum pressure to seat the studs. Reride the cat 3 and 2 climbs because you dropped your headband at the top. Finish in the rain with mid 30's temps. Fairing kept me mostly dry except for my face.



Some pics of the new ride

Those Mockbas were great frames. Is that a Denver Spoke sticker on your forks?

You are a brave soul to post a photo of you in the clown--- err cycling uniform.

I think those composite (read:Plastic) shifters were Ofmega. They were paired with a plastic derailleur and a very swanky, angular crankset.

I forget which frame builder but we sold a reynolds 531 frame with that group on it back in 1986 or so. It was a very light group for the cost. You weren't a racer unless you had an Avocet computer. I asked for one at the LBS when I built up this latest bike and the fellow said, "wow. I haven't heard that name in a while."


I had the same Giordana jersey, blue with the stripes on the shoulder there. I think there was a photo of Alexi Grewall wearing it

here he is riding that frame, it looks, but maybe a chromed fork?




These don't look like aero tubes, but what can we tell from this angle? (is that Steve Bauer?)



But I knew about him because he started riding for my beloved Panasonic Team in about 1985 or so.



PS oddly enough, when you google Alexi Grewall, your (MrHead's) Mockba photo shows up! linked back to this forum

Anyone know if Denver Spoke is still in business. I was on the other side of the world and never made it there. I have been to R and A in Brooklyn and Bike Bikyle in Philadelphia

Ride more. Crash less. Lose a few more lbs and stay below 205.
