Saturday Ride

Be sure to click for BIG! On Saturday, Mark, Carol, Dan (above) and I all met at my house and took a little 1-hour ride. Mark was test-riding my 53cm LeMond frame to see if he would want to purchase it to build a nice road bike out of it.

Unfortunately, the 53cm version of the frame doesn't fit to suit him (he had a 55, before, and we were hoping a stem swap would make up the difference). But, fortunately, the weather was great and the company was good and we all had a good ride.

Afterward, when we got back to the house, the front yard was a cave of tree-shade, so we brought the dogs out front and sat around in the lawn chairs with some frosty beverages.

Eventually, talk came around to the high-wheeler, and I went and got it out. After I demo'd it, for a couple of minutes, Dan jumped up and rode a couple of laps. Next time: Dismounting!

That seems to be the expression on everyone's face that ever rides a highwheeler.

Did he get the black tire line on the inside of his leg/shorts?
