I spent the weekend in State College with Super D, which is good for us and has the side benefit of getting me off the bike in advance of the big Pennsylvania Randonneurs 200K ride next weekend. It’s rated at more than 11,000 feet of climbing; check out the profile Here.
State College, home to Penn State University and centrally located between Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington/Baltimore, is home to five bike stores and we stopped at four of them today. At RBR Recumbents I had a good talk with Rob, the owner, and bought two Minoura Besso fork light mounts and a Niterider extension cable.
Over at Freeze Thaw Cycles I picked up two gorgeous King stainless steel cages that look quite similar to King’s Iris cage, but slightly different.
I took it as a compliment when Justin, one of the owners, said, “I was talking about those cages yesterday and I said Felker would come in and buy them.” Hey, I love shiny stainless steel — that’s a reputation worth having.
