    Looks dead similar to my red late 80's Bianchi Alante. I've got it set up also just like yours. Nice ride.

    First New Bike(s) in 40 Years

    Thanks for this evenings entertainment. Just finished all 41 pages

    I think this is my first post here, so I'll start off with a pic of my 1968 Raleigh Sports new replacement:



    Got my wife a used 2005 model a few weeks ago, which included a suspension fork:



    Thanks for all the contributions to a great thread!

    That's next! But I have to keep gears on at least one of the beaters so I can haul my kid around in his Burley

    Is that the Nashbar Front Rack Bag on your front rack? If so, how do you like it and how roomy is it?

    My road bike as seen on my commute in this morning. I ride the same bike rain or shine, but I'll put a garbage bag over the pack before I strap it on the rack when it's raining.

    I've got one too. Nice bag, great mounting straps, not that roomy though. Good for a jacket or lunch in the main compartment and a few tools/tubes/keys/cell phone, etc. in the side pockets. I also have the matching rack that mounts on the canti bosses.

    Cool, thanks for letting me know! I thought it might be a good replacement for a rear trank bag, but it sounds like not too spacious. Hmm.

    Thanks!

    She's a Long Haul Trucker. Looks mini b/c it's a 42cm frame. I'm really small, so yeah, she sort of is miniature... it is amazing to finally ride a bike that is the right size for me.

    I'm sure this is a stupid question, but as they say, "the only stupid question is the one you don't ask", so here goes...

    How do you post photos so that the hi-res version appears on screen? I am able to post links to photos stored on my ISP, and I know how to post the low res thumbnails, but I can't find anything in the help file or elsewhere to getting the photos to appear within my post automatically.

    Please help.
    I don't own a cell phone or a pager. I just hang around the people I know. If someone wants to get a hold of me, they just say 'Russ,' and I say 'what?' and turn my head slightly.

    The bikeforums ain't geared for viewing your uploaded, hi-res shots right in the thread. That would be sucking a lot of their bandwidth everytime somebody viewed the page, rather than only when the thumbnail was clicked.

    I started using my mtb as my commuter since the streets in the city are so pitted and potholed --- was riding my roadbike but ended up rebuilding my back wheel. This thing handles all the problems I run into and can go jump a curb or go offroad if I need to. I ride it year round on and off road. It's kind of a Tank.

    I carry my clothing/papers/food in a backpack -- oh yeah and it gets the luxury of riding an elevator 5 floors everyday and getting parked in our "bike garage" - an unused office a few of us use to lock our bikes up all day.

    Yes it's a foldable, originally came with the Hummer Sports vehicle - and the army made use of them for paratroopers.

    http://www.montagueco.com/aboutusourhistory.html

    I won this one, believe it or not --- from a Newport cigarette contest (mom smoked) - so I submitted mine and Mom's name and forgot about it. Probably 6-8 months later I get this large box delivered to my porch --- addressed to Mom . Wasn't going to keep it - but I started riding more in the winter - and doing more offroad - so I kept it. Going to keep using it as my commuter bike - and going for a more compact/lighter weight mtb in the Spring.

    Not to mention how many people have noticed it's a one of a kind bike around here too ...
