noticed a dearth of Romuli in your galleries, so here's a few pictures
of mine that I shot this morning. I purchased the frame/fork this
summer from the iBob list, and spent over a month getting it all
together and mostly working. Anyway, it's a nice ride now that it's
- 61 cm frame
-Silver shifters with Sora (fr) and Tiagra (rr) derailuers. Expensive
deraileurs don't seem to matter much with friction shifting, and
these were nice and silvery.
- Panaracer Pasela tires, 32mm wide. They measure just under that,
and fit nicely with the SKS fenders. Still, I might switch back
to my Ruffy Tuffys--these feel too much like 27x1-1/4 bike boom
- Nitto bar and stem
- B17, to fit the bike, but I just really don't get along with this
saddle. It will come off this weekend and be replaced with my comfy
Bontrager plastic saddle.
the sculpture: this is one Dublin's public artworks. Chief Leatherlips
was a local Wyandot Indian here in Central Ohio who got along with
both the natives and the whites. The white settlers named him Chief
Leatherlips due to his reputation for never breaking a promise.
The story is he was executed by other Indians in 1810 for being
too friendly with the whites. The sculpture was built from local
limestone and finished in 1990.
