Mark's new Trek

Beth's Univega Ital Sport

I absolutely needed a third bike, as no upstanding bike-shop-groupie would be caught dead with just two bikes. So when this full campy Univega Ital Sport came in, in a harder to find 48cm frame size, I couldn't pass it up.

Some changes were made to make the Univega suit my preferences. We installed Tektro aero levers, as the Campy levers were difficult for my smaller hand size. Double sided MKS pedals replace the chunkier stock pedals. Brooks honey bartape and matching Brooks B17S saddle improve the overall look and feel.

This bike rides very fast and is very responsive. Now I can attempt to keep up with my husband on faster longer rides.


A Busy Spring Day at VicsClassicBikes

8:30am - Hour of cleaning
9:30am - Mark Meinhart and I take a Seminary Architectural Spring Bike Tour (date)
12:30 - Mark Brittles stops by to pick up his Trek 500 with interrupter brake levers & grip king pedals (see blog post)
1:30 - Pizza at Papalino's, the one and only Vic Classic Bikes' endorsed pizza
2pm - A couple of hours of work on the blog, facebook, craigslist posts
4pm - Time for some real fun. Drew brings Beth some shorts, Mark M is back after a nap (needed it after a ride with Vic this morning) and we break out the Jack Taylor Tandem.
Madness - the good bicycle kind - ensues.

Architecture Ride with Mark

As the weather warms up, we're getting back into group rides on Sunday mornings. Yesterday afternoon, Mark, a veteran architect, asked if the ride was on for this morning and I agreed. We left the shop at 9:30 Sunday morning for an architectural tour of the Louisville seminaries, and had a great time. Join us next Sunday!
