Well, I raced it.

I'm on a rest week but Little Stevie Weller wanted me to keep my legs fresh.  So I decided to race the 1938 Golden Arrow in full vintage wool in the CBTT.  A full race report would be extremely boring, but let me just say those guys in the 30's were real men!  I managed 22 miles per hour which frankly surprised the hell out of me.  It's like driving a tank in the Ardenne.  Think about 30 pounds of bike and 37 mm 26in tires and all steel-brake levers, handlebars, cranks, hubs, etc.  Something I only need to do once.  If I get a picture later, I'll post it.  Expect to see me in lycra and carbon from now on-fo sho.
