With that said, we might not want to look at a bike for about a week afterward…
Haven’t updated in awhile—here’s the latest to join our stable:
Great bike! It represents a few ‘firsts’ for us:
- First brand new bike (or in the case, frameset) ever purchased (since childhood, anyway)
- First disc brakes
- First bike from an American company
- At a more micro level, first “compact” frame geometry (i.e., sloping top tube, fistfuls – note plural – of seatpost), first straight fork, first silver fenders/mudguards, first…
Let’s see if this one lasts (we tend to go through bikes like, well—insert your favorite analogy here), though we have a feeling that it will—it ticks a lot of boxes for us.
This is our Peugeot PSN-10 (“Mont-Cenis”) reborn as a retro-modern gravel/”adventure” bike with a Shimano 11s group, 50/34 gearing up front and 11/32 ’round back, and 700×30 Challenge Strada Bianca tires. Love this bike—it has always been a fun ride, but it’s never ridden better than it does now.
