    I was able to get my PSV 10 out for it's first ride(after build). Today was a nice cool, sunny day(40 degrees and blue sky). I rode from home down to the Burke-Gilman trail, and then about 10 miles on the trail(on top of 15 road miles). A lot of people out enjoying the weather, so it was a little more crowded than I'm used to. The Sammamish Slough was smelling pretty ripe in a few spots, but that just made me faster.

    Battaglin, Baby

    I doubt any of you remember the great
    Christmas miracle of 2010, wherein I
    finally figured out that the jolly fat guy
    was never going to bring me the bike I
    wanted. Direct action produced this:
    Battaglin 006.jpgBattaglin 003.jpgBattaglin 001.jpg


    Which finally made its way off the repair line
    and onto the road today, which was when the
    rain let up.
    Battaglin ride 2-20-11 003.jpg

    I'm not sure it qualifies as vintage, but
    it sure is fast. It appears I have finally
    accomplished my dream of owning a bike
    that is quite obviously way beyond my
    capabilities. I am thus living the dream.

    Thinking of changing my name to Fred.

    Location is the American River bike trail,
    which was truly a madhouse today. My wife
    actually saw two guys offer to duke it out
    over some perceived offense with regard
    to following distance, or possibly wheel sucking.
    the dialogue was unclear to her.

    With a great deal of happiness,
    Mike Larmer

    My favorite thread, seeing these vintage babies actually in use!

    In between coats of drywall mud I squeezed in a 63 mile loop with about one mile of snow walking at the 8000' level. Here cruising at lower elevation:

    Well since it was so nice out today, upper 50's, I thought I'd go out and buy a '78 Peugeot UO-10 and take it for a few spins around the block. I'll take it out for a little longer ride tomorrow.

    After approximately 2 months, 4 days, and 5 hours, I got back outside on the bike today!

    A quick after work ride with temps hovering around 30ºF got the blood flowing a bit.

    Dear Bike,

    I missed you.

    Love Kevin

    Right on! Good to see some plastic fenders once and in a while.

    BTW, I got the SD card back safely. Thanks for the added material.

    I got a nice little cruise in around town today. Things are melting nicely and spring is coming!

    I thought it would be fun to share this local landmark that I frequently pass. Forgive the picture quality/viewpoint, but it may be the best I can get on this gloomy day without standing on top of someones house.

    This used to be the Bluestone Depot here in town. The old drawing is in a book that was published in 1875. Today, the building still stands in remarkable condition but the background is now a boat repair facility and houses in various states of disrepair line the street.

    I am pleased to announce that, just 2.5 weeks after surgery, I'm up and running. Sorta. Two rides in two days, both short, both blogged onto rideblog. If I can make 3 miles interesting, I can do anything!

    Just remember, slow and steady wins the race.

    I can do anything!
    I assume this applies to pole dancing.

    First landing state park. Wish I had a picture with my bike in it.
    Just finished building my '86 Schwinn High Sierra that morning. Rode for about 4 hours. Sat on a secluded beach for about 2 hours.

    John Smith landed somewhere near here before moving more inland to Jamestown...


    Not sure if he stole clams from seagulls like I did though...

    I got 110 km in before foul weather(rain)(and lack of patches) got the better of me. No photos, unfortunately. Today was the day I was going to finally make it to Uxmal ruins. I'll try again.

    First ride of the year, just short of 20 miles. 28 degrees, tad 'o wind. Snow started flying as I turned onto my street on the way home.

    ^^^^^

    That snow looks horrible....... Most of the snow here is gone, and things are drying up. I could never take my good bikes out in those conditions (just the junkers), that's just plain ugly.
    Amy, I'll always remember you...... I miss you so much, for you filled my days with so much joy.

    I was thinking the same thing. There is so much sand in these parts, the horizontal cast off starts accumulating on the frame.
    Looking for • Quick release for a BR-6208 • Cotter pin press

    That was just off the road so I could lean to take a pic. Roads were dry and nice!

    Not a stitch of anything on the frame, note the fenders and LONG mud flaps.

    Kev, love the Blue Stone Depot building. What a gem. Great historical drawing too. Tell me it's existence isn't threatened by progress.

    I'm going to do a few more of these comparison pictures this spring/summer.

    THAW festival all weekend in Moab, free demos of Kona and Yeti, free food, free beer, free schwag. Here's Bjorn on a Yeti ASR5 Carbon:

    So now, 5 hours after dismounting the bike there's another inch of snow on the ground!

    You rode that beauty in this c......?

    I rode today, but on a beat up converted Specialized SS MTB to Mpls.

    Hot coffee does a world of good at these temps.

    You're a brave man.

    On a route I scouted out yesterday for completely dry shoulders. Trust me...she didn't see a bit of wet

    I just leaned 'er on the marker for the pic...every other inch was dry dry dry.
