Thanks for the link, that's great reading. That photo is a few years old. I was a Campy fanatic. My daughter borrowed one of my Campy aereo water bottles and lost it and I'm not replacing that, (Ebay going for $100 !!)

Thanks.

The bike and myself have under gone a few fashion upgrades since..... I now sport a pair of prescription Bolle' sunglasses, black tape and a spare tubular under the saddle.

Not our fault if you don't bother to read post #1. There are lots of threads for sharing just your bike. That's not the point of this thread.

I'm kinda lazy when it comes to pics. I have 8 cheap steel bikes. I buy those because I'm a little careless and unlucky with squirrels lol.

This is my fav steed, old pic. Saddle angle has been fixed.



And here's my face lol



If anyone wants to tell me how to resize images, feel free.

It's easy: If you are on a Windows machine, you have a program called Microsoft Paint. Right click on the image, click on "open with", select "Paint", and the image will open.

Up on the toolbar, there is an option called "Resize". Click on that, and it will come up with a couple boxes that say 100%. You can either resize by percentage, or you can select the other option (pixels), and type in either the height or width, and it will fill in the other if you select "maintain aspect ratio".

Then click on File, and Save As, and you have a resized image. Hope this helps.

I was hoping there was one built into the forums. Thank you. I'll do this in GIMP next time.
