Mountainbike ride this spring in Strawberry, AZ.



All the other pictures of me seem to have a cat or my infant niece in them... I need to commission a riding buddy to get a shot of me actually riding.

(Happy birthday DD...you're 48 on the East coast!)

c.2006 Vancouver, with my 1981 nishiki comp II in fixed gear set-up, that was a nice mass production frame


c.2007 On my 1980s Faggin with super record.



on train to germany in 2007 my girlfriend at the time's 1989 nishiki international in the foreground I was on a 1984 international, nothing original.


c.2008 (my friend is a hairdresser and was doing photo for a competition, I volunteered myself and my bikes, it was fun) with my 1981 marinoni pista special


of these bikes I still have the marinoni.

^ Those are all great pics!

I like the one of you on the Faggin flying through that corner; someday I'll get someone to take one of me doing something similar. I've always regretted the fact I have no really cool picture of me going scary-fast through a turn.

The one of you with the Marinoni; you could pass for being a member of The Cure

I mean that as a compliment, by the way!

DD

Have been rocking my friend's Catrike for a week now... I mock him for being too skinny and beardless to be riding a bent.

Great pics, everyone! And thanks, NB, for the birthday wish

DD
Hope you had a great birthday, you don't look a day over 32.

47 is my next mileage marker and my daughter says if I shave off all the white friskers I look ten years younger, she is such a smoothie.

First of all, Happy Birthday DD.

Hope you have some big time fun!

Couple of quick shots of yours truly.

Lake Superior, right before we went winter sea kayaking. Super cold adventure that day, that's for sure.



Skiing at Red Lodge, Montana.

There's usually no one around to take pics when I ride. But there sometimes is when I do my main thing.

Thanks Gomango. That's a 14 foot Heritage Marquesa sit on top, with two fly rod holders. A heavy, 79 pounds empty, but stable beast.
For which I've been thankful on more than one occasion in the chop.

Here is a shot my wife took a few months ago.



No C or V bike yet, still searching for a Bottecchia to restore.

And another Happy Birthday wish to DD, hope my favorite Senior Chief has a great day.

How does your missus like the Biria? I sold a ton of those in my shop.

Happy 48th birthday DD!

Here's a shot taken during this past Memorial Day weekend. Resting along the Salt River, between Red Mountain and Usery Mountain.

Wow, a flood of new pics! Including a wedding! Congrats, RB1!

Here is my stoker and myself (and our moms):



Oh, wait, that was 35 years ago. Here is one more recent, earlier this summer:

Here's me from a recent century ride to Maine. It was my first full imperial century, and we did it at night. This was taken at dusk, about 25 miles in:

Thanks Dude. I take it as a compliment, if only I had the talent to go with the look maybe I could be a rock star. Happy birthday btw. I haven't been hanging out around this forum much in recent years, but I have to say it is contributors like you that keep it alive and a fun place to keep coming back too. I notice many of the heavy hitters from 4-5 years ago are very quiet these days, so glad you are here. BTW I did a bike tour last summer that took us across whidby island. Beautiful! So different from the gulf islands and very nice, a lot of military history and a surprisingly dryish feel to the climate.
