biking/cycling thread

#1 Postby vegan_rossco » Thu Jan 31, 2013 11:11 am

Post pictures of your bikes, achievements you've made cycling and general chit chat regarding cycling related sports.
I know there's a fair few keen bikers on the site so thought it would be nice to start a thread.

This is my daily ride when the snow isn't 30 cm in the great white north. I used to race downhill on this old girl:

And an 06 Giant STP for my tricking needs. :cheers:

I love Felt bikes. They make a great product that isn't absurdly expensive. TT bikes are great but a take a little bit of getting used to. The first bunch of rides I had the feeling I was going to go over the front wheel at any moment and cross winds can be a little unnerving.

Here are the other two along with the tt with upgraded wheels.

Those Felt bikes are sweet. I have been eyeballing them for my next bike.

This is my current ride.

goddamn your bikes are hot!
I have a schwinn traveler, circa '83. Pretty heavy but it's my commuter and touring bike.

Anyone getting their bikes prepped for the spring/summer, also does anyone have some pics in the places that you frequently cycle?

YAY BIKES! I ride up 24th street in SF every morning and ride down that sweet hill every afternoon. I'm presently on a windsor track bike, nothing fancy, just something to zip around on.
