    The Bertin has a great deal of sentimental value and is mostly ridden when the weather's nice, the roads good and the mood is leisurely. Nowadays,Mrs Cat does most of her rides on the Bertin with her old Rivat Touring shoes sans cleats as her cleated shoes need replacement. The Colnago is set up clipless with Crank Bros Quattros so she keeps a second set of shoes for those rides.
    I myself go clipless on my "modern bikes" but still regularly ride my baby, a 79 DeRosa with a pair of cleated Duegi's and for special occassions, a pair of original Adidas Merckx shoes with nail -on cleats. imo, it's the only proper thing to do.




    best,
    k

    Bikes women ride . . . soon a Spectrum. Just mailed my deposit check to Mr. Kellogg. Hyperventilating a bit. I think I'll go have a lie down.

    So far, so good, I'm still making adjustments - to both handlebars and rider!

    Sorry we missed each other. I giving serious thought myself to some of those custom frame builders I met at the NAHBS. I gotta sort a few things out before I pull the trigger. Was Kellogg at the bike show?

    If you weren't taller than I, Ms Snap, I could make you a deal on a Litespeed Tuscany frame. Alas, you actually grew up . . . . in some ways.

    Kellogg was at last year's show. He does all the spec'ing, designing and painting. Merlin does the building. Gives him access to tons of ti tubing which is a must for a ti builder. I love the rear triangle. I liked Tom's approach to fitting, designing a bike for a small person. He leapt right into the idea of picking a carbon fork that won't beat the crap out of me. He's thinking ahead of all of my "issues."




    I think it will be worthy of my anniversary gift.

    Whatever! It was a PARTY! It's always fun and beautiful. Lots of rolling hills that are just plain old fun. Nice roads, no traffic issues, good folks, live band (Mumbo Gumbo), cheap beer ( I promised to buy you one if you showed up), chocolate cake. You could have met HotRod, the originator of "Amici Veloci my a$$!" and great calves.

    Next year you better get your AV a$$ up there!

    A Spectrum?!!

    SK I am just drooling. In January 06 DH and I paid a visit to Tom K at the Barn so that DH could get fitted for a Spectrum S&S coupled steel custom. Tom spent 4 1/2 hours with us, much of that time just talking and asking questions. The end product is a bike that DH considers perfect, fast, responsive, comfortable, [insert superlatives here]...and that's from a man who owns 10 bikes. B/c of that experience my next bike will be a Spectrum Super Ti. It'll be a year or so before I can save up and justify getting a new bike, but there's no question, it'll be a Spectrum. Kellogg is everything you said, a wizard with fit, and a really nice guy. Can't wait to see your pix and ride report. Have fun getting thru the wait.

    P.s.

    This is the closest thing I have to a Spectrum at the moment. Yes, it's an Eddy Merckx (a 1990 SLX Corsa Extra), but it was exquisitely repainted last year in its original Team Weinmann colors by TK. He is a master with paint, too.

    I've always wanted an orange and chrome lugged Merckx with the photo headbadge.

    Good luck locating one! I can't say enough about Merckx's amazing ride feel and handling. You will love it. Last year b/c of back problems I had to change my cycling position, and this frame is now a little too small. But I love it and in order to do what I could to keep riding it, had to change out the beautiful pantographed E. Merckx stem for a modified Nitto Technomic. I know the tall quill makes this venerable racer look a little ridiculous, but I can ride it now in my old-lady position.

    Tom K is a great guy to work with. This is the bike he built for my wife this spring.
