Croix de fer


Following the n+1 rule (see rule 12) I’m in the market for a new bicycle.

This afternoon I took this bicycle for a trial ride. I did some smooth tar and some bumpy bits but it was under 20 km in total and had no climbs. It’s not the exact model of the CdF that I am looking for, but the one I have my eye on will only be available for a test ride in a week or two. The bike is heavy (it is made of steel) but the rolling resistance on the (relatively) fat tyres was good. I would have liked to try some hills though! I’m quite happy with my current (carbon) “main” bicycle, but I am looking for something I can comfortably do 300 km per day on, over multiple days.
