Here's a shot of me and my Shogun. It's not a great shot of me (not smiling, like rootboy... something about New Englanders?), but it's the most recent one I can find. This was taken back in September during the Kearsarge Klassic dirt road ride near New London, NH:
Thanks for the kind words folks

Yep. It was D.C. In early April. Definitely a cold one. I kinda prefer cold when running though.
canyoneagle, it's amazing how Tepoztlan loks SO much like the town at the base of of the mountain below Machu Picchu, in Peru. Aguas Calientes.,,,,BD

The spookiest part about the Andes there in AC, were the plants/vegetation that covered every inch of the mountains. In certain spots, VERY large spots I must say, the nearly vertical faces of the mountains were bare rock. I thought about it for a minute, and realized those huge bare spots were where large chunks of the mountain had fallen to the valley right where I was standing. Thankfully none broke loose while I was there, but it is still a scary thought. The river that ran through the town, had boulders the size of pickup trucks in it!,,,,BD
Hm, half marathon. I fear my first one this spring. I'd rather have some wheels with it but I got talked into it.
Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.
I'm smiling here, but I'm so bundled up you can hardly tell.
Nice bike; looks like SUNTOUR DT shifters, an not unlike my Schwinn SS (see Schwinn SS for pics). I dunno about the bag on the bars, though! I used to have a similar set-up, which was fine until I hit a bump one day and the bag leapt off its hanger and tried to jam itself in the front wheel! Fortunately I was able to stay on, but if I'd be riding "no-hands" it would have been catastrophic, including a large dental bill!
