    Cool! I think SRAM wireless would be the way to go... But yeah, I got the book Vintage Cycles: How to Find and Restore Old Cycles by Gianluca Zaghi , and it sounds like something that would be a fun project, (and time consuming!)

    I hope they know what they're doing! My co-worker is into that stuff and we see a looot of botched vintage builds, especially paint jobs"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    i... don't really know that marty has much experience building bikes, but he is very much the type to do A LOT of research, and he's gonna work with a guy who was alive for at least part of the 30s and i think probably does have bike building experience, so hopefully together...That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    I went to the Bikes Not Bombs warehouse sale in Dorchester yesterday, which I recommend going to if you like searching for stuff, and found a Zipp disc rear wheel. It was just in a random box that everyone else probably thought was recycling, and they took a hundo for it. Now I get to pretend I’m a TT specialist! I just hope it’s round, because it’s really just a piece of foam glued in between 2 carbon discs.

    I was actually considering doing this Mallorca bike trip: http://www.destinationcycling.com/index.php/product/cycle-sunny-mallorca/. A guy in my club has done it the past 7 years and loves it. If anyone’s interested HMU.

    13-18mph pace is actually a huge wide range. people that can do 13 can't necessarily average 18? (never mind the 18-23 group!)

    i think we're more into "yay fun bike ride with some challenges" vs "special training week" level =PThat may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    Yeah, I guess I’m mostly interested in it for fun, but also wouldn’t mind getting the miles in if it will help with sucking less at Killington, and whatnot. That schedule seems like a lot of miles when you add it up, so the goal would be to not get masochistic on myself. I can do that in Boston if I feel like it :)
