Technical Stuff

On this page I will share information on my bike and the equipment that I am using on the trip.  Hopefully I will be sharing happy news and not boring you with daily stories of ‘another flat tire’. 

My Bike

A 2006 Serotta Coeur d’Acier (Heart of Steel).  This is a great bike.  The best and most expensive bike I have ever owned.  The white center triangle is made of custom steel while the black front and rear struts are made of carbon fiber.  This bike was custom made to my body size, flexiblity and weight.  It is a joy to ride.
