Steel Is Real

One of the biggest men in cycling (in Richland County, Wisconsin) sent me some info on this ride in Milwaukee.

It's a smallish event in September, which I won't be attending, but it has some interesting facets.

The First being it's a Celebration of Steel.

The Second is it starts and finishes at Cafe Hollander, which is a Cycling Themed - Belgium Beer Serving - tavern.

And "C", this information came with pictures of a Jack Taylor restoration done at a little shop in Waterford, Wisconsin.

Huret front derailleur "suicide shifter", obscure Campagnolo chain tensioner, and a a Sturmey-Archer S-5 internal 5-speed hub combined with two front chainrings for 10 ratios.

On Wisconsin.

This I will be at:

Thanks for the heads up. I may have to check that out.

The little shop in Waterford is where they use to build Schwinn Paramounts.
