For some reason I thought Zaphod posted that pic, hence my comment. But now it's even funnier.

Here's a photo I took on Sunday. A fellow i-Bobber from the west coast was in town for a few days, and being the same height as me, tried out some of my bikes. Here he is on my recently built up Schwinn Voyageur:

+1 for perfect fender line
-1 for non-drive side shot (I don't wanna hear how it wasn't convenient)

I thought these were 'everyday' shots, not ones to be published in BQ!

Terribly out of focus cell phone shot of the new saddle I got for my copper Voyageur. This is outside of my neighborhood liquor store. I stopped to buy a bottle of brown to celebrate the brown saddle.

See above for plenty of ammo with which to make fun of me. Have you read the new issue?

Nor is there a rule you can't chat too much. But too much is, ipso facto, too much.

depends on your standards I guess. fortunately I don't have any :)

maybe the rule is that if you talk, you must also post a pic of some sort.

Well, here's a picture of my fairly new to me daily rider parked in the usual daily rider spot along the railing in the living room. Right now it's a cobbled together 1x9 with 8sp bar end shifters run in friction(Just tried this yesterday and found out I like it. I hope I don't turn into one of you old guys bi***ing about indexed shifting. :P), mismatched wheels, a MTB derailer, and only a front brake on the chopped and flipped drop bars(They broke, so I turned them into bull horns). It's a work in progress.

So I'm guessing you are restoring the clay tablet, and mixing in some matching clay you scraped from the back side, for shame!

-holiday76 07-27-11 12:28 PM

you know what's so funny about this pic (aside from the shorty fenders)? I was so fixated on taking a picture of the bike I didnt even realize i was on the wrong side of the statue.

Here's an everyday shot. In fact, it's a today shot. I just went outside to shoot it. It's my Bike Friday tandem, on which I've been riding in to work each morning this week, after dropping my daughter off at music camp. My work provides a secure bike cage, but when I ride the tandem, I have to lock it outside because it's too cumbersome to turn around in the bike cage!

And just for Justin, it's a drive-side shot!
