    Got out on a couple good rides this week to give my new Yo a proper shakedown. Only complaint is the rattling Mavic skewers.

    P-22 that is (no colker vision there, ha),and often more than not I was well behind, but the Ritchey is not to blame nor the fact it was my first time at Tamarancho, though it is fun and nerve wracking to have no idea what is around the next turn! Lee had many advantages, but bike wasn't one them (my digs gotta go both ways), cheers and ride on

    Phoenixes were on the more challenging trails.

    Sweet double OG action. I wish I liked beam bikes. Still neat to see though!

    That drop bar OG treating you well?

    My friend has back problems. The beam bike lets him ride in comfort.

    My OG is fantastic. I ride it more than any other bike I own. Most comfortable, hands down.

    Beam bikes have their place! I'll take that over not riding.

    Stoked to hear your off road drop OG project yielded such a great result. A classic xc cruiser.

    All this talk of Merlins got me inspired to take mine out last weekend. Easily still one of my favorite bikes. Definitely one of the diciest trails I've been on in a while, but still fun.

    Yeah Lee you need to work off those pounds, oh and after pic 2 I'd be more squirrelly than I already am. A certain candy typed frame arrived before I left for MT, with any luck there might be a pic next weekend of another dirt drop with that Otis. Cheers and dig it

    Ahh the Bay Area

    OK, not the best shot of the trail per se, but man was it absolutely perfect this weekend for riding, did a ~20 miler through Tilden and along lesser known dirt fire trails and, well, some legit if not really "legal" single track, I guess fitting for this A La Carte as it really does it all even though I may not.

    In either case, hope you all got a chance to hit the trails, man it was so nice even road riders said hello to me Cheers,

    Sorry for the blurry pic. I was trying to convince my young boxer not to jump into the river.

    I am always amazed on how well this bike rides. Light, nimble, and comfortable. Thanks, Ted!

    My vintage 12yo boxer also went on the ride.

    Thanks! I do love my Lobster too ... My rip wasn't broken completly, I don't know if this is the right term in this matter but in German I would call it a hairline crack. It still isn't ok 100% but good enough for playing with my kids and riding through the woods.

    As it should! Looks great of course. Took mine out with a ride with Lee and Mr Chance at Tamarancho, took a good helmet to hard ground spill and a couple flats, please say you have at least one camais to spare? Livin the ride though it was me that was a bit lacking. Cheers and man they track perfectly.

    Do not let it get over 20mph!!
    The brakes make noise - but that is about it - traction however is amazing standing - sitting - no wheel spin at all even on some really sharp climbs!

    Where are the pics from the ride!?

    I don't have any Canis tires to spare! Not vintage looking, but I'm a big fan of the WTB Moto up front and a WTB Exiwolf out back. You should be able to fit 2.3/2.4's no problem.

    Working on mapping out a vintage ride in Wilder, Santa Cruz. Ocean views, rolling hills views, forest views.

    I like the sound of that! Please keep me informed. No pics from the ride a couple weeks ago and Lee was on a sweet 2017 Fat Chance Yo Eddy demo bike, only Chris and I carried the torch (he was on a beauty Chance Ti), as I said I flatted out twice, and urged them to go on without me but caught up on the ride home...

    Colker, sure it counts especially with that view, Brazil is pretty amazing, I was in Bahia for a month doing field work, great peeps and seafood! Cheers

    Vintage Tour in the "Harz Mountains"/Germany: 110km/9000ft climbing: 90er Salsa A la Carte, KHS and Rock Lobster.

    Ride on and all the best from Berlin

    miles KM in

    Marco,

    Sounds like an awesome ride, you certainly put your miles or hmm km in, that's a trek on a SS, but the Lobster and A La Carte a match made in heaven.

    For my part, not such an ambitious ride, but a nice 20 miler on the Phoenix, she's really getting dialed in. She might not be the purists cup of tea, but I wanted a eclectic build. I've always wanted the Cooks F-series, like the Jimmy stop front brake and DKG booster (thanks GOB) which actually helped the fork shutter a lot and is functional.

    This is a classic Cali east bay hills ride pic, bonus if you spot the feathered friend in the background.

    Trail Pics-img_3970_jpg.jpg


    On a side note, on my morning walk with Moxie, I spotted something that went by a bit too quickly in my grogginess, but it certainly was a custom painted (red/yellow odd combination paint job) Salsa, I believe a Scoboni, I was too dumbstruck to call out to the older gentleman, but I might be onto something, he was probably in his mid 50's, never seen him or it before, it looked mint and very spicy, wish me luck, I've already though of a trade (the P-22) and cash, wish me luck. Like Lobster #17 needs to take a back seat?

    Cheers and best to all,
    Benjamin

    Got the 91 Tomac out for a shake down ride after putting it back to flat bars (it was awful with the Tomac drop set up).

    NO other bike so awesome as this for ride, handling and the fact that it magically transforms the rider into a Spandex-clad 90s NORBA/Grundig/World Champion.

    The end of the ride today:


    A massive drop of about 5m or so going down with around 70 and on the other side up the same. I couldn't even walk it down

    No, I slided down with the bike on my lap

    Apparently some folks with more suspension were riding down this drop to get to this last, still steep part of the trail down to the road:


    And somewhere before:

    Marco, that 2nd photo is awesome, but the neon Lobster still shines through. Switched over to straight bars ehh. I have to post my recent project soon, almost done. Think single speed (my first), brazed, made by a certain John S. In either case wheelset and crank aren't what I want, but I'll post it tomorrow as is (and get flack!, ha). Cheers and ride on

    A weekend in the Alps with some friends. With us: Bontrager, Ritchey (P20/P23) and an Orange P7. Almost 100 miles and 13.000ft of climbing.

    Very impressive indeed, my legs are sore just thinking of the 13,000 ft of vertical! Looks like it was an epic ride. Great pics! Cheers

    Discovered a great new trail segment near my house with this nice little S turn.

    1991 Ted Wojcik and 2013 Jamis Dragon Pro

    My Ted and Jamis 27.5 got some action this weekend in CT. It was too friggin hot to take trail pics. Plus, if you slowed down, the bugs attacked you.

    Each time I ride the Ted, I'm amazed at how well it performs.
