No Clydes/Athena bike pic thread?

Hey all,

I've noticed in a lot of threads folks always saying post your bike pics. Maybe I missed the thread but how come we don't have a post your bike pic thread like all the other forum sections do?

Would anyone be up to starting one?

I would love to see what everyone is riding.

Thanks for listening.

Shawn

Maybe cause we have like 352 stickies!..Well, more than the others and I know I for one like to read different threads rather than the same half page of stickies!


But just for you, here is a picture of my bike and it's 3 bodyguards!

Well, I sold my trek road bike 2 weeks ago and am awaiting the arrival of my new Cannondale. So, no pics yet. Maybe at towards the end of the week (hopefully!).

Well, we could make this a 'show us your bike' thread! Here's my Cannondale with it's champion flyer saddle. I know, should be showing the drive side.

I like the saddle, but am thinking about taking advantage of the 6 mos guarantee because it limits what I can use in terms of saddle bags. As I ride longer distances, I'm finding I'd like to have more stuff with me. I also added a Dimensions stem extender last week which my shoulders are thanking me for!

My back thought so too! The stem riser is helping out with that!

My bikes
My C'Dale MTB, I don't do a lot of MTB riding but when I do, id it on this.

Second up is my origional roadbike from 2008 an Opus Adante

And lastly my good weather only bike, yeah some may say it's a tool not a jewel, but this bike only goes out in good weather and has yet to see a drop of rain.

And out on a ride

It's in the thread index sticky thread. We wound up with so many useful threads that deserved a sticky status that you'd have had to go to the third page of the forum to get to random threads.
