The Venge Gets Hung Up…


October 2016

The Venge’s days are numbered, for this year.

I rode with a whole pile of friends yesterday morning, 34 miles in just a little less than 2 hours.  1:59:59 to be exact.  It was slow, but with the starting temperature below our overall mileage, meaning it was freezing or 0 C, I wasn’t expecting much.

The ground was a little damp too so there was absolutely no way I was taking the Venge out.  Also, with the night ride coming up on Tuesday, it just makes sense to hang the Venge up for warmer, kinder days.  

Now, you may wonder how a simple night ride could have any bearing on why I’d hang up the Venge…

Good luck hanging a light from that handlebar.  I’ve tried, and short of zip ties and a ridiculous amount of DIY rigging, it just isn’t going to happen.  I’ve tried, with expert help, and there’s nothing out there…

No, it’s the round bar of the Trek or nothing.  In this case, awesome has its limits.

    Helmet light if you really get the itch… 🙂

  2. It’s always good to take the old bike out to remind yourself how great the new bike rides. Perspective! 😀

    Some lights have fork crown mounts. I think Cateye GVolt is one current one that does. Might need a longer front brake bolt, though.

      Yeah, I’m not going to go that route to ride the Venge at night. Typically speaking I can make the difference up with a little “want to”. Thanks for pointing that out though. Much appreciated.
