Subject: Cross Europe cycling trip
This summer I rode most of the TDA cycling Trans Europa ride on my new Rodriguez touring bike equipped with a Rohloff hub. The bike was comfortable and performed flawlessly on pavement, gravel or dirt. I covered nearly 4000 kilometers without any repairs or adjustments needed. The gearing was low enough that I could ride up the occasional 16% to 18% grade, and high enough that I could get a boost on the gentler downhills. No breakdowns, no saddle sores or knee issues, not even a flat!
Two other riders on the trip decided that they wanted your brand too. Scott and Yvonne Goldsmith should be down from Anchorage to get fitted before too long.
So thanks for your skillful design, fitting and manufacturing; which resulted in a flawlessly performing touring bike and a great six week ride.
