Trying out my new bar tape and breaking in a fresh new pair of kicks... I had to add some cheetah feel to them as they were too plain.

That looks a little tight getting in and out with a bike, Mike, but wow, your own private spiral staircase leading right to your door? Who can beat that?

It is a little tight! But practice makes perfect - muscle memory has taken over and keeps the wheels off the walls and the saddle away from overhangs, most of the time. The spiral staircase is a bit of a Montreal thing. When it starts to get cold (and slippery), I'm just glad I have the indoor version, and not one of these:


I don't ride much when there's ice down, but if it's borderline there might be ice on the steps first thing in the morning (my girlfriend's old place had stairs like these). Yikes! Back to Vancouver soon, so regular stairs and ice as a relatively uncommon condition are in my future...

Excellent photo! Even though it was staged, it has that spontaneous look as though someone could have just stopped you and asked you if they could snap a shot of you and your bike.

On the Santa Ana River Trail heading East. First ride on my Vintage Centurion. Went up to Mt. Rubidoux.
Some views from the trail.

OK, these pictures may not exactly qualify for this sub-forum....the C559 is not a classic (yet)...BUT I am certainly vintage and I do own a C&V bike...so here it goes!

No bike, but I was riding my BF/JYB c85 Gianni Motta on this century ride on the Chief Ladiga/Silver Comet trail.
This pic was taken at the AL/GA state line.
I'm the short one next to the 6'5" guy.
This was Phil's first century. Now to get him an old bike.

^ I like how the pics are now in the daylight - temps must've dropped a little, huh?

Wonder what to expect down Austin way a couple days after Christmas when I visit my sis

I did my Black Friday shopping on the bike. By the time I got home, it was loaded down pretty good.
