It has been a decade since I have ridden the Ride Across Florida (back then it was called “Race” Across Florida and about 30 miles shorter).

Two years ago, after I built a Baron lowracer, I saw a picture of the Aero, which became my dream bike. Zach Kaplan had one & raved about it. Earlier this year, I raced the 2004 Cherry Pie criterium with John Schlitter, where he lapped the entire field twice (including streamliners) to take the win on his Aero. I had [...]

Folks, I love my new Strada. I am not new to bents. I’ve had a Linear for 5 years and I was looking for something a bit tighter.
