    The one that (re)started it all for me... sadly out of commish right now and for the foreseeable future.
    I've loved every one of the 1500 or so miles I've put on it to date.

    BTW, didn't you get the memo? BLUE is the new black (plus, it's well-documented that blue is the fastest):

    "People who spend most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles." - Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman

    I don't have one yet, but I'm probably going to be getting one of these soon:


    but since blue is the new black, I may up the ante a little and get this one:

    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    My first bicycle was a black mid-1950s 2-speed Schwinn middleweight. My 12-speed hybrid conversion (S-A 3-speed with 14-16-18-20 cogset) was a black Armstrong. The closest thing I have now is my charcoal / metallic brown Bianchi.

    Now we're talking! Here's the stock model of my Giant Cypress SX. I've replaced the seat and tires and put the bars a little lower so my reach is closer to me. I also removed the toe clips.

    I was beginning to feel left out of this as The Boreas is Gold and the Bianchi is Celeste so I was going to Poke two fingers at you and sulk- So heres the pics of the bikes and there is a Black one there- The one that I only take at night now so it blends into the background. And the "T" is not normally this colour as this was a dry day.

    My wife just purchased an Armstrong S-A 3-Speed (mixte frame), and yes, . . . it's black! Sorry I don't have a photo of it yet, but what is the history of the Armstrong bike brand? Long before Lance, I'm sure, but as a bike brand it's totally unknown to me.

    Hmmm. I always thought the head tube was the one in the front. Obviously I was wrong.
