I have to update that photo. The bike now has a Flight Deck, Michelin
Pro Race sneakers, and some new wheels, hand built by yours truly.
I use a 52-42-28 and a 13-23. Started with down tube index 7 speed,
swapped in Sach's Ergo's and an aris? 8 speed rear. Lost the oe
brakes and put SC105's on. It is only an aluminum Trek 1100 but it
took me on a few cross michigan tours and a few 24hr challenges, and a
500 mile camping loop from Pecos, down to big bend, marfha and back.
My brother has a older OCLV and he rocks on it. One of those 6% body
fat guys. The other day he finished in the top third of a 10km run.
Not bad for a guy pushing a sports stroller with his son in it.
If you ever make it to northern michigan, that triple will come in
handy. We have had people from mountainous areas realy come up short
on mile century rides. Our hills are not high but steep and often.
All that glacier activity. The RAT (ride around torch lake) is a good
ride in July each year.

It's the motor, that 1100 will do fine! My previous road bike was a
Trek 1000. I'm an off-roader at heart, the road bike is for my heart
& lungs, so I can ride the trails better. If I didn't work part time
in a bike shop, I probably wouldn't have dropped the coin on an OCLV.
It's a GREAT bike with an excellent ride, but I'm a tightwad. <G>
Sounds like Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire. Rolling terrain. Not
much altitude gain & loss, but it sure feels like it.
Luckily, we have "The World's Flattest Century" in nearby Rhode
