Specialized Crossroads Trail montage before Resize.jpgMe on my first bike ride Resize.jpgNot sure if the year of the Specialized bike is correct. Little help please. The other pic is me on my first bike ride in more than 20 years. Riding a 1997 Cannondale Super V700.
That is one very cool picture.
Now I have people coming up to me on the street as they recognize me from the paper... and the publicity has been rather good for business.

I have a lot of bikes -- a lot of them are classic-styled and vintage Mercians from England -- some new, some old. You can see many of them on this Retrogrouch post on Mercian: The Retrogrouch: Mercian Cycles - History and Tradition
getting ready to head out on tour in Northern Norway this summer:
1 Super Record bike, 1 Nuovo Record bike, 1 Pista, 1 Road, 1 Cyclocross/Allrounder, 1 MTB, 1 Touring, 1 Fixed gear
Hello there! I'm a newbie here and a newbie to being a serious cycler. I recently acquired a beautiful fixer upper bike, it's an Astra-and a 10speed. So far this is all I know about the bike, it needs a new front tire and some major rust clean ups-after that we will see how the restoring goes!2.jpg
About 1/2 way through the NY Century.
@iab - thanks for posting those photos. Everyone looks so happy.
@Sixty Fiver - great photo of you in your shop. If I'm ever in your part of the world I'm stopping by.
@Gannburg- not sure if you're still around, but I have a 1992 Specialized Hardrock Ultra with that color scheme, so I'm guessing your bike is early '90's. Hope that helps.
Thanks, Velocivixen! Then we shall call it a '92.Specialized Crossroads Trail montage before Resize.jpg... Or maybe a '94.
