here is me and my bike
here is me and my bike
I have absolutely no pictures of me RIDING my bike. In fact I have almost no recent pictures of me at all; the most recent are from Thanksgiving last year. Obviously something is wrong here. Now that this thread exists I will have to correct both of these gross oversights. :)
Here are a couple of the family! Couldn't find one with all of us in one pic....
Here's Mrs. Gomango with our youngest son Will. This was taken at our favorite lake in Bayern, a beautiful sailing lake named Chiemsee. Windy as all get out.
That's our families' boat, and it is a hoot.
Here is one of yours truly with our oldest son Severin. His soccer team had just won a large soccer tournament in Madison, Wisconsin.
As I am behind the camera in my professional life there are few pics of me in captivity at all, much less on a bike. Here's one from 'another day at the office' a few years back:
And here's my son, in a pic I used in a CL ad to sell the MTB he's riding. I noted that the bike was '14-year-old Boy Approved!'
Now, the trick is to get the pic without the watermark
The only guy in that picture who might be considered fat -- by some kind of snob -- is the guy way in the background, between foreground guy #1 and foreground guy #2.
Fat people can run Half Marathons too :)
This is me in April 09 running the Suntrust Half Marathon in DC (yeah, i was wearing a cycling jersey)
commuting to the city a few years ago:
on a recumbent bike tour in '08 (wasnt fat then :( )
and for fun, here I am standing next to Joan Rivers at my place of employment a few months ago. Came out kinda blurry unfortunately.
and here's my excuse for being about 25 pounds heavier than I was about 2 years ago (one week old daugther and one year old son)
My wife and myself in DC this past week.
My Zullo and I.
The green Bianchi Specialisima is mine while the pink and black Miyata is my friends.
..which is taking the picture. How silly.
Ok, 1975... still have the hair, but someone stole the bike!
Here's yours truly, when our shop first opened, tuning up a Mountain Goat touring bike (that's WAY too short for the owner):
Here's my wife and son about to head out for a bike ride:
And here's my son and I discussing the proper use of a quick release skewer before installing new shifters/brake levers on a Specialized Hard Rock:
I did not occur to me at the time that the Hard Rock has a Turbo saddle :thumb:
Both shots are a couple years old, but I haven't changed much.
Most of the way up Mt. Diablo with the Paramount.
Taking a break with my buddy, Carl. The couch was just left there by somebody. I'm on the left with my Ron Cooper. Bigbossman took this pic, too.
I was putting together a Bianchi MTB for a friend. My son came in and was goofing with the lights, turning them off. My friend saw the cool lighting and went for his Nikon.
Hiking with the fam. This is my oldest son and youngest son... also have another son and daughter and #5 is due in a couple weeks.
Another shot taken by my friend. (He was absolutely tickled with the bike. He hadn't been on a freshly-tuned bike in years.)
Keeping on topic, here is picture of my wife and I a few weeks ago.
My family and I all went for a short vintage ride near Dorset VT. Here is me basking in the afterglow! yes, I look like my cartoon!
I'm the one you're not looking at in this photo.
My 19 y/o, now off at art school.
