Ok, so you all have heard me mention my awesome bike. I took the camera with me on Monday and grabbed some pics for you all if you care to see such a beast of a machine I figure everyone else starts threads showing off their new bike purchases and such, I'm showing off my beast!
There she is in all her glory. Sorry, but I don't have any pictures of the fat *** that rides the thing, LOL. Care to see some more?
Here's why having this kind of frame and wanting to carry water sucks....
How about some grunge? Clean it? Why bother, I don't even have full cables on the thing with how frayed they are....
I don't even know how I got the little pouch mounted on the handlebars. It is very old considering it is a pouch for a portable CD player that came attached to a backpack I once had. Anyone remember those, the portable CD players? Also, my ghetto light system as well. These are my flashlights I use at work. Need to get something better, but they work for now. All I'm doing is illuminating reflectors in the tunnel so I don't run off the pavement. Mounted with a double hose clamp. I don't even know what lumen they are rated, not very much for 3 light package for $10 (1 of the lights was broken.)
Here's the cockpit view.
Ok, finally she's posing in front of the tunnel. Unfortunately taken with my wife's camera which is a complete point and shoot. Would be able to see the tunnel much better with me using my camera manually.
Oh, and call me a geek all you want, I wouldn't have a bike without a kick stand .
Hey, she's a piece of crap, but she propels this fat *** down the trail at 14-16 mph on a daily basis. Bought it in 2005, don't know how many miles are on it riding with the kids, but she's now got 230 on her since July 31st when I put a new computer on her and started riding daily. Other than taking the rear derailleur apart and cleaning it and adjusting everything best I could with the frayed cables, the only thing that's happened to it is I put new tubes in the tires right when I started this riding for fitness thing. Those were the original tubes I took out from 2005.
Hope you enjoyed the pics
