Ellis left a couple bikes unattended at BAMF.
I planned to steal one, never got around to it.
Beauties, all.

I bet most of the pictures you see now are done digitally... technology has come a long ways and some folks have sworn I was shooting with film when my primary camera is an 8mp Canon digital.

Looks like a wonderful bicycle for you.

I haven't seen a Wages built bicycle I didn't like.

I really haven't spent much time photographing the bike, although I am a fairly serious photographer. Next week I'll set the lights up and get some better shots. Here's what I have so far.....

Thank you both.

The big cogs are there because I ain't 25 y.o. any more! The long cage was made by a BF member. It works about as well as the Rally it was modeled after, which is to say not very well! But it looks great, and the bike rides so well I don't mind the imprecise shifting.

I was up in the Catskills again this Columbus Day weekend, trying to get in some fall foliage by bike while there was any left, and came upon a couple from Colorado photographing this covered bridge. They had travelled here just to see the fall colors (a serious windstorm last week plucked most of the leaves that weren't quite ready to fall). They shot this photo of me.
