The Relaxed Ride

Finally! After a week of treacherous downpour and winds, it's sunny and 60 deg. It's going to be like this the whole weekend! Perfect weather for a 200k brevet I'm doing tomorrow. Interested parties should check out Great Lakes Randonneurs.

In the realm of Rando/Touring/Commuter type things, we just got some pretty sweet items in...

Brooks Devon Drive and Non-Drive Side Rear Panniers

Brooks Cornwall Handlebar Bag

Fancy fancy bags from the beloved Brooks. Nifty way to hold your spokes and many other things.

Sugino Mighty Tour 170mm
and 175mm

Talk about some fine Japanese craftsmanship! The cranks have the sheen of a Sugino 75. These have a lower Q-factor than the XD Triples and are great upgrade for your touring bike. Man, they are gorgeous.

SKS Fenders

Still made in Germany and a great price for high quality fenders. Easy to install and they just look so classy!

Velo-Orange Handlebar Bag

I couldn't resist, I had to get one! They will soon be posted. Check them out at Velo Orange. It'll be quite handy for tomorrow. A clear pouch for the map and easy access to my food or camera. It's going to be a great ride. Hope ya'll get some sun this weekend!
