I have a 7 year old 58 cm Habanero road frame with Shimano 105
9 speed front and rear derailleurs, Shimano down tube shifters (I have
some Ultegra STI's if you want them), a Performance Forte carbon
seat post and a 105 crank set with 51-38 chain rings. It has a Ritchey
up-pointing 120 mm stem and Ritchey WCS 42 wide bars with basic non-
STI brakes.
Habanero are straight gauge 'basic' titanium frames (see
for more info).  Honestly, it rides and feels more like a steel
frame than ti..I don't know why. (Maybe the straight gauge tubes?) has been a wonderful bike, but now it just sits in my
basement and it needs to be ridden!!
If you take the bike with all the stuff above (plus water bottle cage,
a frame pump, cateye wiring for a computer and the option of Salsa 105
degree rise 110 or 120 mm stem) it's $400.00.   If you want
some STI's instead of down tube shifters and/or a SRAM Rival compact
crank (with bb) it's $500.00. I have pictures if you're interested..
I can also post pictures of a particular part of the bike if you want.

It has never crashed and certainly never been raced!

I'm in Baltimore near the Hopkins campus.. we can meet somewhere and you can
ride it if you want.  (Just be sure to bring some wheels and whatever pedals
you use).

Just a few days ago, I did an Oregon Ridge loop that goes up Sheppard Rd to Troyer...the little store/antique place on the corner of Sheppard and Troyer Rds. is CLOSED. It'll get
hot tomorrow, so plan to pick up enough water at the Jiffy Mart (mile 24) to last until
we get to the convenience store on Rt 23 (mile 50.9).

The BV century on Sat the 23rd is open to riders who aren't registered for the whole 5 day event.  You can register for JUST the century, or any other single day you want.
They sometimes have problems representing the true difficulty of their routes, but this looks to be about 6000 ft of climbing.

For sale..2 Forte Pro carbon handlebars.  I bought them before I realized you have to match your riding position to the shape of your handlebars.  They're barely used
(less than 2 months old, maybe 150 miles on each one)..if you're interested, I'd be happy to 'loan' them out so you can mount them to your bike and be sure they fit you.
$70 OBO

If those letters mean anything to you, then let me know if it's
worth it to burn a 'BBC' version of race coverage.
If enough of you are interested, I'll make a DVD set and send it
to the first person who responds..who will watch the races, then send
the disks to the next BBC'er in line, and so on. As always, I have
my own copies so I don't need them returned to me.

The order of viewership will be determined by the order of responses to
this forum post....


The weather looks good, so the ride is ON!  See you at 9:30 AM
at Alpha Ridge Park!

Bill Gary

There's an increasing threat of rain starting early afternoon tomorrow, the 21st.
If it's raining in the morning, I'll cancel the ride (I'll post a decision on go/no go
here on the forum by 7:30 AM).  If it looks like we might have 2 or 3 dry riding hours,
we can do the regular GR&R loop out to Old Frederick (about 27 miles), then turn left and head back to the ride start for a total of 35 (or so) miles. OR, if it looks like we'll still have more riding time, we can turn RIGHT on Old Frederick and go down to that turn-about just outside of Mt Airy, then turn around and ride on Old Frederick back to Alpha Ridge Park.  The cueue sheet will have a map on the back for riders who aren't familiar with the area.

Are they still working on this intersection?
Forum: Road Problems

...was considering this area in HC for some riding this weekend, then I remembered
that Shady Lane near Burnt Woods was closed the last time I rode thru that area.

It was easy enough to walk over the construction site (or to ride around it) but I
was curious if it's still closed.

or if this is your first BBC club ride.
