My Peugeot Comp 500, c. 1995:
and me, on stage in Milan, October 2008:
From last month's D2R2 ride.
Picture 1: Enjoying a beautiful ride on a beautiful day.
Picture 2: Pure suffering after an epic climb.
Very cool pic. I heard he was a chef now. What a nice guy. The band I was in opened for Husker Du a couple of times in Philly. Greg used my bass amp, as his was in a broken down van about 100 miles from the show. They were all very friendly. Easily one of my favorite bands of all time......
Hey Grady...Please tell Greg that they rocked (as if he didn't already know)...I was a big fan from the beginning and I particularly love 'Candy Apple Grey' as it is one of the albums that marks (in my memory/mind) the start of my college/adult life.
Props to him (them) please...

Yep, the Entry in all it's beer drenched glory.
My brother's band Man Sized Action opened the show.
My brother shared a house with Bob and about 6 other people when Bob started the big tours with the band.
Greg was the one that got me into the music business and hired me to work at a record store he managed.
Husker Du practiced in the basement!
When this pic was taken of the band, and not taken by me by the way, I was working for Twin Tone and a band called the Replacements.
Gosh, was that fun!
....and fender1, what was the name of the band?

Fantastic looking rides! They deserve more detailed postings. I'm sure others agree with me.

I for one, thankyaverymuch. They are peppered thru the forum (no need to be redudant) These are the keepers, Family members have claimed three of them- I'm limiting myself to two now/one will have to go if I find another. Started this hobby 2 years ago and since then prices have gone up and pickins have gone slim. Estimate about 25 bikes-come and gone as I look for my graile-great to test out models I could never afford way back when. Im also new to this area-finding the rideing seasons very short. Grew up in Fitchburg, Ma/a very hilly city-very different being in the flat lands. Also spent around a decade in Florida; the land of baloon tires as they are beach freindly. How do you like Arrid zone-a? (love that quip) Must be some nice rides rust fee there. Well I'm everywhere like dog poo-who knows where I'll end up next....my you have a lot of posts!

I'd say the Hercules is more of a twenty footer. When I picked it up with a few other bikes. It had about three coats of paint and all the components were beyond repair. I even had to weld a piece of metal onto one of the bb cups to get it to actually turn. I was bit by the fixed gear bug a little before this and had plans already on what it was going to be. I just want a raw looking bike...no sticker..no paint...nothing flashly...with touches of carbon(wheels, cranks, fork). It tips the scales at twenty pounds since the frame is just a little under five pounds. The Rev X's are fixed with a Surly fixxer and I picked then up cheaper then an aftermarket fixed gear wheel set with decent tires/tubes already mounted on them. I actually alternate between my Giant OCR1 and this on my twenty mile round trip commute to work. It feels like it pedals itself while riding and I'm just there for the enjoyment.
Well, I see we're getting the odd member here and there still - great! I came across a couple more I would like to add:
Downtown Seattle seen from West Seattle, March 2006. The Cinelli is actually going on the chopping block this year (*sigh*)...
Enjoying a Redhook Pale Ale at the Redhook Brewery, just off the Sammamish River Bike Trail back in 2002...
As soon as I can figure out my new printer/scanner I am going to scan a few pics of my first bike (Schwinn Apple Krate) and drop them here, too. I didn't always ride Italian lightweights...
An impromptu self-portrait with my 1972 PX-10. We had 35-40 mph headwinds coming from the south on my river bottom highway ride today, so the ride north was incredible and I averaged well over 26 mph for about miles. The ride back south, however, quickly erased all thoughts of riding in the TDF at age 50 and my average mph was ... um... substantially less.

Life's too dang short to ride ugly bikes.
Just finished the LiveSTRONG Challenge back in 2008. Rode it last year and in fact, tomorrow the 24th I ride in it again. What I am up doing this for, I don't know...
Psyching myself up for the ride tomorrow...
for all the dad's out there.....
