A couple of weeks ago, my friend Mike Dann and I went on a ride around Lake Eildon. A ride another friend refers to as the Lake Eildon Super Loop — Or LEiSL.
Wil, the technical editor at Enduromag is getting a Soma Wolverine for a long term test, and he’s getting it through Commuter Cycles. This first article in the series is about the bike sizing I took him through.
A while ago I posed myself the challenge of making two identical randonneur bikes in different diameter tubing. The idea was to see if I could notice much difference between them and see what I preferred. I also wanted to see what all the fuss was about “planing” and if it was something I could notice.
I’ll write about the bike as it has performed over various rides, but especially on its first ride out to Woods Point last year. This part, part one, will focus on the bike, part two will focus on the ride out to Woods Point and back.
