My grandfather worked for Westfield/Columbia for his entire adult life and never owned a car, just walked or rode his Columbia. I wish my father was more into bikes and saved some stuff my grandfather used to have from those days. All I really have left is a Centennial edition road bike (late 70's junk) and an 80's coaster brake cruiser (also pretty low quality). Somewhere I have a picture of my dad as a teenager riding a late 60's Columbia tandem solo from the stoker's seat...I wish that bike was still around.
    great story - thanks for sharing. And thank you for your approval of the bike (you too DaveYates).

    I wish I had seen the old factory before 2008 when they tore down the major part of the old factory and the famous Pope smokestack. But I am glad I took this mini pilgrimage to what remains for these photos after I put this bike together. I also wish the Columbia museum was still there, but they tore that building down too and mothballed all the bikes. Sad.

    Apparently they are still building school furniture there.

    ^ Beautiful family you got there!

    And a Raleigh Gran Sport in Laguna Blue and white would be an excellent accompaniment.

    Who needs a bike when you have so many smiling faces?

    Oh and BTW, this is me looking silly on a horse.

    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    Old pic, 1982 I think. I'm in the yellow/blue Jersey aboard my Super Course.



    Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, circa 2000. I'm the one in the horrible white sleeveless jersey




    October 2012 in Tepoztlan, Mexico. No bike, but one of few recent pictures of me.

    My dentist, Marc, is an avid cyclist and commutes 10 miles each way to his office come rain, come shine, and come snow. He's more of a cyclist than ever I will be, and he always gets a kick out of this picture!

    Sort of a timeline, I guess.


    About twenty years ago.


    Maybe six years ago.


    Four years ago.


    Three years ago.


    Last May.


    Yesterday.

    Anyway, I just realized that I've been using the same gloves for over six years. That's something like 25,000 miles... maybe I should be doing a product endorsement for them.

    Scozim: What a fantastic family portrait...you have a lovely family!

    I realized I have few shots of myself on a bike. But thanks to Drillium Dude during our Southern AZ group ride, here's a recent shot of me, enjoying Italian steel. Note my C&V Hind tights.
    I like this pic!
