Winter Cycling Tucson Style

This classic fixed gear is 20 lbs ready to ride with 59 inch gearing.

Today was cold and windy, but sunny.  Two long-sleeved, wool jerseys and shorts worked well for a brisk 15 mile workout in two sections.  Sheryl accompanied me on her LeMond Zurich during the second session.  We were both hungry by the end.

This is a fun cold weather bike.  It was once my track competition bike.  Now with brakes, it works well on the road for early season fixed gear work.  A refresh to the 30 year old paint job is probably in order, but nothing rusts here in Arizona, so it probably won’t happen.

Out of curiosity, I weighed this bike today and found it about 2 lbs heavier than my Scott, ready to ride.  Got to love that new technology, but this is still a great novelty.
