Spring Cleaning BikeForums style....

Gotta get it in while the sun shines. Just to rub it in for our eastern brothren it's a balmy 65 to 70 today and I'm running around in a T shirt while getting the washin' done....

The touring mount on the left in the first pic is my old R600 Canondale that's going to carry me around France and Scotland in a few weeks for just under a month.

So, I'm confused. They ride without wheels in Europe? Wow, that must make it hard to coast down the hills.

Have a great time--while we sit back here and hate you--and bring back many pics.

Your upcoming trip sounds wonderful.

I agree with the others - riding might be a little easier with wheels

In the words of Henny Youngman "everyone wants to be a chameleon"....

Am I the only one that removes the wheels so they can do a nice cleaning job?

Maybe I should have stretched a line and hung the frames and wheels up to dry?
