Diff between the Diamante and Rubino
Category: Technical

I've got the Vittoria Diamante Pro's on 2 sets of wheels and I love them.
However..they ARE race tires and therefore they're supple, soft and thin
under the tread.  The Rubino's are a little more robust, but I'm curious
how much heavier/'leaden' they might feel.  Comments, anyone??

Is the Wed Oregon Ridge route OK?
Forum: Road Problems

..was thinking of doing an OR spin tomorrow afternoon (Cuba, Miller, Falls,
Stringtown, Yeoho, Benson Mill, Cedar Grove, Corbet, Carroll, Sparks, Belfast, etc.)
Does anyone know of any problems with any of these roads?

How about Shepherd up to Troyer, then Troyer right to Monkton?



Hey Mary & permitting, I'll be at the CWC volunteer ride
on SUnday.    Bill Gary

mix of new and used, std and compact
Category: Technical

By changing over my bikes from standard cranks (Bolt circle Dia of 130) to compact cranks, I've amassed a collection of chain rings...anybody need any of them?
They are new and used, 51, 53, 50 39 , 38 and 34 tooth, a mix of Shimano standard issue and TA 'after-market'.  Contact me, let me know what you're interested in,
make me an offer.  Any CR's left after a week or so will be donated to the 'Velosophy' project in downtown Baltimore.

Just in time for the Vuelta!
Category: Social

The Universl Sports Channel, which tends to broadcast more cycling events
than Versus, is now available on DirectV as part of their 'sports pack'.

I'm going to sign up for it for the Tour of Spain coverage..I'll let you know
if it's an improvement over Versus.

P-R, LBL and Flanders
Category: Social

Hey, that the classics season is over, I've put my
Versus coverage of Paris-Roubaix, LBL and the Tour of Flanders on
2 DVD's to share with those family members who missed any of these
great races.  The disks are for circulation among the tribe in order
of your responses to this post. (I don't need them returned to me).
It will be the responsibity of each viewer to pass them on to the next
person in line.   Renee're up first.  Send me your address,
I'll send you the disks.

I didn't have a chance to pre-drive the route, so I'm going to do
this as an 'organized, but less than club ride' style outing.  We'll
leave from Mt View Middle School at 9:30 AM, doing the standard 70.5 mile
(about 4500 ft of climbing) loop. Lunch is at the Weiss Shopping Center in
Damascus at mile 36 and there's a Citco gas station with food at mile 59.
I'll bring cueue sheets with maps.  Please call me at (410) 366-0956 if you
have any questions or if you need more details about the ride.
As always...please know that all the climbing encountered on this ride is
Janet's fault and, ultimately, her responsibility.

58 cm Habanero road frame
Category: Technical

For Sale....
58 cm Habanero titanium road frame with a Forte carbon fork,
a new (November 2010) Cane Creek headset and (if you want it),
a new (also November 2010) SRAM Rival 172.5 compact crank with
9 speed or 10 speed chain rings and the SRAM-specific bb that
comes with the crank.

The Habanero is a basic no-frills titanium frame with standard road
geometry (see '' for details) and
straight-gauge tubing...yet it still gives a firm but resilient
ride. It has never been crashed and CERTAINLY never been raced!
It would make a perfect 'hi-end beater' bike for someone!

$400.00 OBO. Pictures are possible if you want.

I live in Baltimore, could meet halfway between there and where-
ever you are.

Please contact me off-forum (

Bill Gary in Baltimore
