A. Homer Hilson as CX Racer
At last week's cyclocross race there was a guy riding a really sweet looking Rivendell A. Homer Hilson. The shiny paint and brakes would soon be coated with SF bay mud and the finely wrapped handlebars would become slick with goo. Looks like there's plenty of clearance in those big brake calipers, but I wonder about trying to shift in a race with what are essentially friction shifters. Well, you run what you brung. I didn't see him after the race to ask how it went.
