Grand Illinois Tail Bicycle Ride Key Equipment


Equip Plan

What started in the seventies is even more true today. “Built to last” no longer seems to make any sense. Technology moves so fast that something that has been out for only a couple of years has technology so outdated that you can get much better quality for the same price. This is not a treatise on good or bad of our consumer society, just an observation. Basically, the newer the better. There are some things where the latest technology just makes sense.

I am riding a different bike this year than the one I used to ride the GIT in 2006. I graduated from a $50 garage sale bike to a "Giant Iguana" and there are some nice features. The shifter is nicer for example. Extra shocks seem to reduce strain. The comfy seat is "to die for."
