Today we zipped out to pick up my new COHO Randonneuse built by Chuck Lathe.
It is comfy and looks very cool. I can't wait to sit on it for about 10 hours. That's my plan to do exactly that next weekend riding the Mason-Dixon 200K beginning in Bethesda, MD.
The Randonneuse was built with:
- Brooks saddle
- Nitto bars, stems, seat post
- Paul Racer brakes
- Honjo Fenders
- Berthoud bag,
- (2) E6 lamps yes, two and Chuck says they are bright! I hate not being able to see at night. Especially when medium size animals are thinking about jumping in front of you.
- Schmidt Dynohub from Peter White,
- Synergy rims
- Tires: Grand Bios 700x30
- Ultegra rear hub/drive train with 9speed cassette
The photo shows my Ultegra SPDr pedals but I plan to use SPD pedals soon.
More photos to follow along with a review of The Ride.
Iranian Push ups
I'm starting to feel pretty good and loose. I am a little sore from the RIS esp. in the hip flexors. The trade off is my back didn't bother me today.
