    You need to get to know MORE, as well as Gears n Beers and a few other groups.

    There's some great riding in the area, albeit a bit spread out.

    If you wanna go riding Wakefield, Lake Ffx, Fountainhead, etc let me know.

    It’s not an RS product - custom by Leh Cycling I believe.

    ^ this. I think Richard was making a funny. This was a custom one-off recover project I commissioned for an upcoming Sachs road bike build. It will be posted here sometime soon. Beautiful leatherwork by Carson Leh of #lehcycling

    Thanks folks for the info. I've always been a fan of Mr. Leh's work.

    Default Leather and Brass for the Hercules

    Actually a couple weeks ago; for installation on a '54 Hercules "roadster". Just had the O.E. saddle give out so the new Brooks came at the right time! Also, just rebuilt front wheel with new spokes, rubber, and grease; ready to break-in the new leather and rubber. Fabricating a mount for the Lucas horn and a brass Lucas carbide head lamp for some more customizing (anyone have a Lucas rear lamp to sell?). Have Hercules badged tool bag in black leather for the front, but doesn't match up well with the brown accessories being used; plan on "badging" the Brooks bags with Hercules logos. Still need rear wheel rebuild; one missing spoke, but wheel spins true.

    Interesting to see what it has evolved into. I think I might even prefer this to the Spurcycle.

    Following up, yeah...nah. Itís in the drawer. Prefer the sound to a Spurcycle, but itís just not loud enough to be useful.

    Same. And mine emitted a constant and really annoying tinging noise on rough roads - if which there are *plenty* where we ride.

    I had it silent. Then I took it off and refitted and the tinging was like the original. Weird.

    I picked up this hard to find Selle San Marco Rolls Ti in white leather for that future retro build.

    The box says Coral. That's not Coral. That's Hot Pink (a good thing!)

    More leather and brass for the Hercules. Going back to a "hairpin" style similar to original vice the B.17s. Powell and Hanmer headlamp. Some old rear mechs for various projects.

    Interested in what you think of these shoes. Isn't it interesting that cycling shoes have gone from laces, to velcro, to boa dials, back to laces, and now velcro again......

    I'll chime in here as I have a set of the black ones...

    Although they didn't quite feel right for me (I have a wide foot and a long 3rd toe, though, so take that with a pinch of salt!), for a 'cheap' (low range) shoe, they seem pretty impressive - at least impressive enough to make me want to try the pricier models.

    For me, the biggest drawback of the R5 is the cleat mount placement and the fact that they're not slotted cleat mount holes - I couldn't get my cleat back far enough. If it weren't for that I suspect I would have persevered and hope that they adapted to my foot, but as it is they've been sat in their box for almost a year since the first ride. Interestingly, the more expensive models do have slotted cleat mounts.

    A lot of potential, if the fit and cleat position works for you, though.
