From the Compass Cycles / Bicycle Quarterly website: We test the Masi Speciale Randonneur and the Frances Farfarer trailer by taking them on a real adventure: our third attempt to traverse the Sawtooth Range. Will a new route bring success? Is the affordable Masi bike enough for such an adventure? And how does the trailer carry its load??Click here?to watch a video of this exciting adventure! Fun on a bike doesn?t get much better than a solstice gravel ride skirting the flanks of Mount Hood, one of the volcanos of the Cascade Range. Join a group of friends as they explore some of the most amazing and challenging roads of the Pacific Northwest. We take a 1947 Ren? Herse tandem along a forgotten part of the Mediterranean Coast, exploring quaint fishing villages that are connected by miniature mountain passes. We bring you a portrait of French collectors, starting with cycling historian extraordinaire Raymond Henry. He?s researched the history of cyclotouring for more than four decades. More than just a historian, he?s a life-long cyclist, and his collection of documents and historic bikes is matched by his achievements as a randonneur. He takes us on a fascinating tour into the history of cyclotouring. The early 1980s saw the pinnacle of the classic racing bike. We feature a Ren? Herse that combines Campagnolo?s immortal Super Record with the first modern super-steel, the almost mythical Reynolds 753. Savour its amazing details, starting with a frame that includes brazed-on brake mounts. A host of titanium parts make this bike 20% lighter others from its era. Classic racing bikes don?t get much better than this! A full report from the?Bicycle Quarterly?Un-Meeting completes the articles in the Autumn edition. Join more than 60 cyclists on a weekend of fun in a forgotten corner of the Puget Sound region.
