Was passing Wendover only yesterday!

Here's when I was last there in 2013 with an Apps related bicycle (my green Jeremy Torr)

So many questions!

First off, that's a Highpath, isn't it?
What is the seatpost on it?
And the Breezer. OG or replica?
Which one is better in the mud? :)

Yes my 1988 Highpath. With its 100mm wide bottom bracket shell it has the largest mud clearances of all my bikes.

I am currently experimenting with combined dropper/suspension post designs. That one looks odd but works remarkably well and works well combines a TMARS mechanical dropper post with cantilevered U-shaped steel spring.

The owner says that it's number eleven of the ten originally made. :?

The Series One Breezer did remarkably well in the mud though I suspect that it needed a bit of a clean after the ride. The Highpath will get its annual clean next summer.
This is the first time in 37years that a Series One Breezer has taken part in the annual Cleland Ride.
Highpaths however are as common as the muck they get covered in.

Cheers Graham.
I would love to see and hear more about your seatpost designs.

As for the Breezer, there was a guy on here who built a replica a few years back, but from memory he was not the OP. Was it that one?

No, this one was built by the OP from the original drawings that Joe Breeze published.

Maybe this is therefore number 12?

Or there may be even more replicas that have been made by modern frame-builders? 8)
