    Yes, Wiggins is a guinea pig.

    Groundhogs weigh twice as much as a guinea pig, and offer no significant advantages to the cyclist. Further, they tend to become highly resistant when one attempts to take them on an adventure. Guinea pigs, on the other hand, feel the need for speed, and will stupidly go anywhere there might be lettuce.

    Here is a picture of my sister and I from a few years back when I was still living in North Vancouver. These are 1950s Schwinn cruiser bikes that we eventually put 8 speed cassettes on to make them a truly first generation mountain bikes (anyone seen the Klunkers DVD?). Recently picked up a 1998 Marinoni Squadra and am hoping to have some pictures of that beauty soon.

    ps. The paint on these are original. Mine was a maroon that just faded to brown. Went so well with the patina.

    I posted this one in the Saved From The Dump thread. It's a 1985 Trek 470 that I completely restored. Took her out for the inaugural spin today, and what a ride! You can see the excitement on my face.

    @HamboneSlim - I love Wiggins, and I haven't even met her yet! I've always wanted a guinea pig. How sweet. How old is Wiggins? How old was she when you adopted her?

    I don't have a picture of me on any of these that I can find, but here's what I ride! I built them all up from bare frame/forks.

    A Nova Pro I cross bike I made into my commuter
    An 86 Sannino built with mostly turn of the century Shimano components
    An ~'10 Felt ZC with contemporary Sram

    Me, making my roady look tiny. I restored this one last summer, it's an ~1968 Italian Chordia / classy Frankenstein. Check out the before picture, she was pretty far gone when I started working my magic.

    me.jpg IMAG2848.jpg IMAG1471-1.jpg

    Currently restoring a ~1964 French (assumed Mercier) road bike, little longer frame than this one and rolling on 27s. I love this ones 26 x 1 3/8" tires during the winter, planning to make the Frenchie into a light 'summer' bike.

    Just your standard Saturday group ride, a loop around the entirety of Bora Bora ...that's me on the far left.

    A little OT since I was not on my own bike but a terrible rented beach cruiser upon which I looked like a clown riding a child's bike, but oh well, close enough.

    This was a stop on an 18 day sailing trip in French Polynesia: two 52' sailboats, six instructors, eighteen students. Still recovering...

    A picture of Betsy and me. (That's Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price.)

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
