My Conti, It's heavy, and slightly too tall, but I love it.

P.S. If you are interested in old school stuff like that Niagra Cycle Works has a storefront with Amazon and they sell a whole lot of Wald stuff.

Okay I guess it's my turn

My 2004 LeMomd Tourmalet. There are alot of nicer bikes in BF but I just love this one since I get to ride it.


And my beater: 1994(?) Raleigh M-50. I got it on eBay for $37 and it rides like brand new.

I snagged this from eBay recently. I'm borrowing the seller's photo until I get it back from the LBS. It will look sweet in front of my garage door.
2005 Schwinn Fastback.


Also have a 1990 Trek 850 that I'm going to convert to an errand runner.

OK, this is my one and only bike: The Brooklyn Urban Assualt Bike. This beast has held up all through my crazy riding at 360 pounds! I keep updating it, so it is a real work in progress. The next things to get are: a 700c disc wheelset with 700 x 35 c tires, and a nice gps unit.

My '07 Hardrock Sport the day after I got it (two days after the '07s hit dealer floors). 700 miles and a couple months later, it's looking a little more sexy, imo

Soon to be adding a SS! WOoo!!!

O.K. Tom, you set the stage by posting your entire stable of steeds. I really hope this works so folks can see my arsenal.

OK, I couldn't resist: Here are my past (and future) "Clyde's rides".

First here's my vintage Masi: I love this bike but I ride it less and less for some reason.

Then there's my everyday machine, my Saint Tropez. Its got an ugly paint job but I love just about everything else about it: http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...t=IMG_2004.jpg

Here's my new ride, my Flyte SRS-3 that I built up gradually over the last year. This is going to get a lot of use: http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...t=IMG_2199.jpg

Here's an old but new, never ridden frame thats waiting for just a little more inspiration, er, uh, I mean cashflow. My 1999 Cannondale CAAD3 R1000. This is a Clyde's dream bike, you won't find an aluminum bike stiffer than this from what I've read. This frame doesn't need no stinkin hourglass or carbon fiber rear triangle:http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...t=IMG_1955.jpg

And last but not least: My 1980 Puch Marco Polo, I have ridden this bike everywhere, and can't begin to tally the mileage or number of times its been rebuilt. I got it when I was a sophomore in HS and that was close to 30 years ago: http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...t=IMG_0864.jpg.

I love cycling and when I'm training I can stick with just one bike just fine. The Saint Tropez got close to 4000 miles in 2006. 2007 holds the promise of breaking 5000 miles, much of it on the Flyte I suspect, but stay tuned...the Masi will be coming out to play

.

go to a photo, right click, go down to properties. copy "Adress: (URL)"

For example thats this

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...s/IMG_2023.jpg

Then add the [IMG] [/IMG] tags

Like

[IMG] http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...s/IMG_2023.jpg [/IMG]

But no spaces like

Actually, with Photobucket, there is already an IMG tagged line of code there, it's the bottom code line that says for IMG code. It's for forums or bulletin boards. There's also an HTML code line as well for those places, like blogs, etc that use HTML as well as a URL link at the top of the coding section by the picture (or under in the thumbnail pages). You don't even have to R click to copy, it self copies when you L click to select the code (I love automation!), then paste in to your post with either the mouse or CTRL- V keyboard shortcut
