Thanks for the info. It was a few locals who mentioned the "WTWTA" link. You know how rumors are. I haven't even seen the movie. Love the book, though.
Here's another shot. The structures felt remarkably stable and were more dense than some of the photos suggest.
I need help on how to post the large pics.
I am not seeing that option when trying to post a pic.
Apologies & thanks.
You need to have them hosted at another site like Photobucket or Flicker. Then use the Go Advanced option instead of the quick reply.
If you click on the small pic, it gets bigger. Copy the location of the big image, then use the Insert Image icon in the editor window, and paste the pic address in the little window that pops up:
Anyway, here is a pic from the other night in downtown Fort Worth:
True, I usually have to use the Go Advanced because my spelling stinks and I have to use spell check.
Thanks for the help on posting larger pics. I think I got it now. Will try after taking pics on my next ride.
Just tried Doohickie's method of posting large pics and it is great with no need of extra step on hosting to photobucket and the like. Thank you.
Sample pic from an earlier ride in dtown Dallas.
photobucket is often way too slow. There's another slow one, whose name I can't remember. And the ads and crap are really annoying.
I like flickr and picasaweb best. I had to add storage to my google account. It was something like $5/year to add 20 GB, so now I have 27 GB in total, and I can use the space for email, photos, documents, spreadsheets, etc.
imgur.com is fast cheap free and easy
picasa - i have the $5 a year thing Tom mentioned. Much better than flickr IMO, which I've also had.
here's a pic of one of my bikes with DT shifters.
Yep. That's the place. I love to cycle all over Dallas with my camera taking pics of interest to me.
All these decades later every time I ride by the School Book Depository , Triple Overpass,
Grassy Knoll, Dealey Plaza area there are always folks there checking it out.
There is now the 'Sixth Floor Museum, on the upper floors that is a big attraction.
I have been there a couple of times with out of town guests and it is well done and interesting.
I have actually passed it on to a good friend and riding buddy.
We are hoping to hop the train to Ft Worth one day over the next several weeks with our bikes and ride some of the great Ft Worth trails. If you would like to see it in person we can give you a shout.
If anyone would like to see the original 1973 Nishiki catalog / brochure another fellow who bought one shared it
by letting Jon post it on Velobase.
I see it is labeled as a 1974 catalog. I thought the fellow said 1974. Either way the it looks identical and parts matched up. Came with tubulars.
Hey this is a waste of time.Nobody's gonna want to take part in this thread!
less talking, more pics. You guys were doing good for so long!
