Dave’s Visit Part’s II & III

Part II
Five months later I am adding some more pictures of my brother Dave’s trip to AZ in December 2015.
We visited the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale and it was a cool place to spend a day. We could have spent 2 days as it closed on us before we saw everything.

Café Century Hybrid Bike

In the search for a all purpose city, trail, path, and commuter bike I sprung for a 2016 Motobecane Café Century bike. This thing is about the most affordable carbon frame bike I could find. I opted for the 58cm V-brake version over the disc simply because I have wheelsets that are compatible, plus the frame itself accommodates up to 40c tire width. It has an adjustable stem, FSA 175mm cranks, 50-39-30 chainring, 9 speed 11-32 Tooth SRAM cassette, Shimano 441 shifters, RD-M591-L rear and FD-R453 front mechs. So of course I had to add my own touches. Relatively lightweight platform/clip pedals, these things work great so far. A Selle Italia saddle, very comfy on a 10 mile ride so its a keeper. Jagwire cables, silver housing for shift with inline adjusters, red housing for brakes. Locking ergo soft rubber grips. Koolstop rear brake pads on a Shimano M422 brake. Vuelta 37mm deep wheels with blade spokes, capped with 32c urban tires.
