December 25, 2014 at 6:50 am Pam Happy holidays, indeed. I put my Chanukah present — Loup Loup Passes — onto my Rivendell Glorius this week, and they’re just amazing. On pavement, they almost make the bike melt away beneath me. There was a famous old ad for Rolls Royce with a tag line something like “At 60 mph, the loudest thing in a Rolls Royce is the flock,” and the Loup Loups (especially on empty Christmas Day roads) give that same silent feeling. Plus, they were excellent on gravel, which reassured me, as I was a little concerned by the lack of a dirt tread. With a birthday coming up, I need to figure out whether the Romulus will take the 38 Barlows or only 32 Stampedes. Does anyone know for sure?

Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge of amazing bikes, awe-inspiring rides and colorful cycling history.

I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. December 26, 2014 at 8:49 pm Jan Heine, Editor, Bicycle Quarterly Don, thank you for the nice words. But please don’t call it a “newsletter” any longer! The new issue has 108 pages, is printed on heavy stock in full color… It’s funny, long-term subscribers still recall the days when it was 36 pages, black & white… whereas some new subscribers now call it a “book”! Most of all, I am glad you are continuing to enjoy the magazine after all these years! December 27, 2014 at 6:58 am Oreste Drapaca Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for you and all yours !
