Carrying out the plan with the new bike has been a lot of thinking and planning. When I decided to get the custom Gaulzetti Interclub, it meant the Trek had to be gone. And shortly after starting the process, a used Gaulzetti Corsa frame appeared. I was so excited about the bike that I ordered that I bought the frame and built it up. I chose SRAM 1x and really like the new clutch rear derailleur. It easily accommodates the 11-30 cassette in the back, and I can go up to at lea
This is a staple ride for me, but today I added some gravel adventure to it. Too bad it was so crowded, and I broke the new eKoi glasses. Otherwise it was amazing! HERE is the route on Ride with GPS if you want to do it yourself. #video #CityRoutes

What makes a frame special, and what features work for me? Here’s a little of what I was thinking when I decided. Frame material is a big consideration when deciding on a custom bike. The feel of aluminum has always been one that I have liked. My CAAD10 was the best bang for the buck I have ever spent on a bike, and it rode like a
Being a long time reader of the Radavist and Velocipede Salon, I have always enjoyed perusing through the galleries of custom made bikes. I made a decision last year that I wanted to replace my current race bike, and I recently decided on going custom after a few other avenues fell through. I knew exactly what I wanted, a race frame with direct mount brakes and the ability to fit a 28 mm tire. Just like what I currently have. What? I have had my Trek Madone 5.2 for over three
Well, I definitely need to work out the audio on the Insta360 One X, but I think it is doable with a little fur to disrupt the wind. I will have to pick up one of those silicone cases and try to attach something.
