A few photos . . . .

I have appreciated your advice and enjoyed your photos. The sky was partly overcast today, so I took a few to share.

My 1989 Trek 660, one of my two most used workout bikes.





My other most ridden road bike, the 2007 Schwinn Madison, a reissued quasi CV in singlespeed configuration. This bike is a blast to ride. It's quick and responsive. And, when you become the transmission, it adds a whole new facet to cycling -- out of the saddle to accelerate, spin along the flats, mash up the hills.







My 1980 converted Lotus Elan. **No frames or components were damaged. In fact, given that I dug dirt clods out of the brake mechanism, I did it a favor.



My 1989 Fisher Procaliber in Suburban Assault Configuration. The aerobar may look funny, but it does provide a good power position for the straightaways and into the wind.



And, 2fers. I wonder if I can get them to mate?

I'm not even going to speculate what would result as a result of those two bikes mating .

The Lotus is stunning, though, and a very nice (start to a) collection there.
