    Sorry if this is old news, but...

    is this a fully rigid Redline SS in the GDR? Kent Peterson, I believe. This seems like one tough dude....I'd love to hear more, from those people in the know if at all possible.

    So why is this so unworthy of your comments? Did I miss all the posts raving about how awesome this guy is for riding 2500 miles on his SS?

    Someone? Anyone?? Bueller??? Bueller???

    Let me try another reply. (see pic)

    I went to his page and like he says, he'd rather bike than keep it(page) up to date. So he's someone who likes long cruises. If he wants to do that, OK with me. But there are no ride reports and time lines. How hard was the ride? The pictures show roads that are quite manageable on a hardtail SS. (OK it's a long distance)

    Kent is pretty awesome, some might say(including me). I think he'd just say he is persistent. You can find some more of his posts about the race by going to http://search.bikelist.org/ and searching on Kent. One thing several people have remarked on, including Matt Chester in his blog, is his slow pace, about 9mph. But he can keep up that pace forever.

    He has done other little rides, like 1200K randons on a fixed gear, but he says the GDR was the hardest thing yet. That says a lot about the caliber of all the riders who do the race, even those who DNF. All of them have my respect.

    Cheers
