    Okay, after a lot of doubts about which way to go my 1990 nostalgia bike almost done: looking for Look PP76 compatible cleats and still in doubt about applying Scott decals to the bar extentions or leave it like this.



    That's 18-year old me in 1991 (on a students budget with Shimano RX100)

    Did this 650c bike some years ago but for short woman instead of a kid (frame by Antonio Taverna). She did the paintjob herself. Fork is a very light full carbon 650c Mizuno...

    Progress is slow but now with the correct saddle...

    Slowly getting there with the Delta's and Benotto tape in place. Now for those Scott decals and to decide on the derailleurs. Think I'll go with an 8sp setup allowing me to run a 10sp cassette with the shifter set on friction.

    Thanks! Despite it having the exact same color scheme as my first ever full-size racing bike back in 1990 it took some time for me to love it again. Now that it has grown on me I will built it the way I wanted it to be 30 years ago but could not afford as a 17-year old (had to settle with RX100 at the time).

    Euraudax (original form of audax)
    Participants in the original form of audax ride in a group, at a steady pace set by a road captain. The group aims to cycle at 22.5 km/h between stops. The route is planned with designated stopping points. In longer audax events the group may ride between 16 and 20 hours in a day before stopping at a designated sleeping location. The goal of the audax is for all group members to finish within the time limit. A support vehicle is allowed to follow each group of riders.

    Randonneuring (allure libre form of audax)

    Randonneuring is similar to the original Audax style in that riders attempt to complete long-distance cycling events. However, instead of riding together in a group, participants are free to cycle at their own pace (French: allure libre), stop or sleep wherever they want and form groups randomly, provided they stay within the time limit.

    In some countries (e.g. USA), a clear distinction is drawn between 'Audax' and 'Randonneuring'. In others, such as Australia and Great Britain, the original Audax style is relatively unknown, and 'Audax' and 'Randonneuring' are used interchangeably.
