    25,000 Miles And Still Going Strong

    I thought I would take a few minutes to post some pictures of my 595. I reached the 25,000 mile milestone this weekend. The bike is still in great condition (but yes, it does have its share of nicks, etc).

    I have recently increased my mileage to about 200 miles per week, so I will be racking up more miles this year than in previous years. I have gone thru many chains, a few sets of bar wraps, a seat or 2, two cassettes, and several major tuneups - but the bike is still in fantastic shape mechanically.

    I love this bike and the great combination of ride quality and efficiency that the lug design offers.

    I also happen to think that it is still quite stylish too......

    Very nice...and so is the car. I just recently picked up a 585 Ultra and it's a great machine and compares nicely to my Time VXR and Colnago C-50.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to mount a bike rack on my circa-1970 luggage rack!
