Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Here's mine that I just got the other day off CL. Glossy paint and all. I added a HL135 Cat Eye light since I rarely ride at night, right now, and a newer saddle with a notch and some gel in it. A new frame pump, too, and im ready to go. Now I just need to clean the lower bracket!

Here is my new bike. Had it less than a month. Great at climbing compared to my old 1987 Trek.

Here is mine. Put some Nuevation M28 Aero 3's on it, Nasbar Gel Ti seat, and some Keo Spints. I wish I could buy something and not modify it right away.

modification is a time honored way of making your bike "yours".

It's also a pretty good way of emptying out your wallet. LOL moving from modding cars to motorcycles, and now trickles down to pedal power.
