www.paloaltobicycles.com/alps_photos/f32.html...if I got it right there are 100 great photos of Jobst Brandt et.al. riding Alpine passes over 25-30 years. Check out the Carradice bags and the relatively small gearing.

someone posted the link on the iBoB list

great pics .... had me thinking that Jobst Brandt is into the pop group Hansen ... ;-)

the gearing they use looks outrageous - something like a 48/52 front and 13-21 on the back. real half stepping but not anywhere near easy climbing gears.

after seeing the pics i definatley felt that it was a must do before i die. cycling heaven for sure.
