Ride of My Life - The Story of the Bicycle - Part

Great BBC video of one guy building his dream bike... something I've done over and over! Great brands in there like Brooks, and personalities like Steve "Gravy" Gravenites, one-time head wrench for Volvo-Cannondale.

This begs the question: what's your dream bike? Mine (as of today)... a Cicli Masini (yes, it's coming) cambio corsa frame built up with an eclectic mix of 40's and 50's parts plus some modern Campy bits (new Ergo brake levers and brakes). Add the following: a Brooks ti saddle, Brooks bag and bar tape and clincher rims.

    Brooks tape sucks.

  2. Gunnar - do tell... I just have it on my list. You're the expert!
