If you want to use the attachment option and not host your pics elsewhere, you can download Google's Picasa 3. It's free and quite useful. It's use is to manage and view your pics, plus options to touch them up, or to resize them and save alternate copies. Simply select the pics you desire to resize, click the EXPORT button, choose the size and compression level and it should yield a file size under 100k.

Thanks JunkYardBike, WNG and Pars - very helpful. Think I'll start with Picassa 3 and see where i get.

I meant to dig for pictures this weekend but the general chaos of family life on 90 degree summer days intervened and we installed ourselves on the beach for a couple days.

My bud just sent me this pic from just before the Boston Critical Mass ride this past Friday, with the 89 Miyata 914. It apparently ended with a cop assaulting one of the ride's cyclists, though by that point we'd hit a pub for some refreshment so we didn't witness it...

Next time I'll link to an externally hosted pic. I had to size this down significantly to get to an under 100kb file.

hmmm...Well, don't have any photos of me on a CV bike, but here is one from a team TT from early in the season...


Here is my only current C&V bike, 1989 Schwinn 974 (Inherited from my father-in-law)


Thankfully my wife rides also, here is a photo of her from a Tri she did a few weeks back:

not exactly C&V but at least she enjoys riding!

Well, one decal reads "Diamondback" and the others with canti studs I can see appear to be TIG welded. I'd guess they are cheap MTB frames.

This is My daughter and I on her longest ride so far(25 miles). We took the bus to pick up my latest find, A Bianchi of some sort. Not sure if it is C&V, but its in the 90s somewhere. We stopped at the Ballard Locks for a break, and then rode the Gillman trail to Woodinville.



My son trying to figure out training wheels.

One of the bikes (Cervelo). My other bike photos have the girlfriend in them, sorry.

Start of an 80 miler off the cape. We're on a raised sidewalk, if you can't spot that.

When I see the Bourne Bridge, I can only think about Captain Harris' stuffed Quahogs for some reason...mmmm. I think they may be gone now...seems like my sister may have told me that...bummer.

Oh...nice Cervelo too, I'm sure.

Thanks . I think you know pretty bikes, to say the least!

I just added the last thing to it: a small saddlebag. It's just too pretty now. But I hate the cork grips I glued on, so next summer's project is replacing the north roads with new ones (no way the grips are coming off without destroying the already dying chrome) and new, Ergo leather grips of some sort. Live and learn. I have serious nerve damage in my hands, and somehow thought cork was cushy, not rock hard. But in the meantime, it's very, very beautiful. Guess that's something!

I don't have any photos of me AND my bike at the moment, but I took this after the band and I found a fake mustache dispenser outside a Mexican restaurant. This is my homage to noglider!
