woo heyoo tarck forum!

I’m @featherduster ak-offline as Bennies

this is my 1994 Bridgestone RB-T in it’s 68th iteration. Circa 2011 I lowballed a guy on eBay for the frame and fork, the same week I read about Grant Petersen, seller agreed on the condition that I come pick it up in person, shake his hand and send him a photograph or two as I built it up and rode it.

I met @Crustradamus riding it on upstate NY gravel rides by way of vsalad. I had the now defunct Coarse Fabrication move the canti posts out to 80mm c-to-c. I won the 2014 Nittany Lion Cyclocross Cat 5 race on it. I had the legendary Orc build me a matching fork & rack (not pictured here). I had a full frame bag from Gurp Stitchwork built for the main triangle. Does everything from commuter duty to bicycle camping for me. Everyone says I should get a disc brake gravel bike but I love this bike and will ride it till it’s broken.

currently it’s in pieces hanging on my wall while I wait for Chris Sallen to build me a replacement fork (in queue this week), but I’m super excited to put it back together for it’s 69th iteration this spring and get back to sklonkin’ around NYC and environs on my neo retro gravel groaner

@BEEutiful_Wednesday_DDS has the Olmo


Post it. Then everyone pretend it has Campy pista parts, drop bars, and probably a selle San Marco.

I hope that bike satisfactorily meets your expectations

don’t really miss this bike, but I can draw a pretty straight line from how I built bikes 14 years ago to now.


Hi I’m Micah. This is my dog Handsome Doug.

I’m watching John Wick.

The first time I posted my bike y’all hoped I would snap and rage quit.

Handsome Doug says hi.


That bike was great. I loved that stupid thing and rode it a lot even though it was way too big.

And a paint matched carbon fork which broke after being clipped by something sticking off a landscaping trailer.


Oh yeah, I crashed real hard on Lincoln Avenue under the L tracks.
