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.
