    Just for fun...

    ...I made a photo collage of my bikes that I ride:



    Of course the track bike is one bike with different bars and wheels. A couple of times this year, including last week, I rode each of them over the course of a week.
    Thanks.

    Looks like a very fast collection! My collection is a lot more varied and I don't even have a TT bike, or a real track bike, or a cyclo cross bike . . . have to work on this!

    Nice pic. I like the presentation. Previously, you have posted pics stacked but this way has more impact. I think the coolest looking one is the TT. This week I will have ridden my track bike with drop and aerobars, TT bike and road bike. After riding at the track, my pedal stroke seems smoother and I spin faster when I ride a derailleur bike the next day.

    WOW! Beautiful bikes! Looks like we ride the same size.

    Whatever you do, don't tell me your address. I sleepwalk and can't be responsible for where I might end up...
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

    What a collection - I feel so inadequate...

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Rick, the only reason to own a money-pit like a TT bike is if you like to suffer on various weekends during the year. I call it a money-pit because I am always tweaking it by changing various components. For instance, I just changed the saddle this week.

    Hermes, I've been trying to transfer some of what I'm experiencing re: gearing to my road racing. I've been using LOWER gears during my breakaway attempts on Tuesday night races and last week it worked.

    Alice, 52 cm c-c?

    cyclinfool, it's only misguide spending due to an addiction.

    John, I tried mountain biking in the 1980s into the early 1990s. The biggest problem that I had with it was all the driving that I had to do to get to offroad riding. I got rid of my mountain bike and said that I wouldn't buy another until I retired and built our dream house out in the stick.

    BengeBoy, I wish that the color balance was more consistent between the shots but that's life.
    Thanks.
    Cleave

    The bikes are beautiful and all that, but your garage door alignment is excellent. Exposure compensation could be improved, but perfection can be boring.

    Very nice stable.

    I'll post a collage of my bikes, as soon as I wash it and paint the garage door.
