Show us your bike
 
I'm 50 (unfortunately) and new to the forum. I couldn't find a bike photo gallery for the 50 and older members (if there is one already, I apologize), but I'd like to see what everyone here is riding.

I have a '09 Trek 4500 mountain bike. Ride it mostly on paved trails and some mountain trails here in UT.

The Dormouse is done, 12 hours before surgery. The ride will have to wait for a month or so but there are some quick pics in an album on my profile page. Click on my avitar to go there. 4 hours to get it together including new cables and a quick tune up. Minor adjustments to be made when I ride, but I'm condemned till both eyes are done. No riding, no wrenching, no............... (that won't last).

The Moots Compact is my road bike - my pride and joy. The Masi Speciale Sprint is my track bike used for racing at the San Diego Velodrome.

I always take my camera with me. Here's a photo of my trusty mountain bike, taken on today's ride on an un-numbered, undesignated forest road.

If you insist. 2009 Cervelo R3SL, special Tour de France edition, had it about six weeks, close to 900 miles on it already. This pic was taken on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah NP in Virginia:

We'll cure you of that attitude. If you weren't 50, you'd be dead, so quit whining. :thumb:

Wow! Not just quantity, but real quality in that collection, as well. I particularly like the look of that Strong "dirt road bike" (cyclocross?), but everything you have shown is awesome.

I rode a 1971 American Eagle Semi-Pro for 20 years, until the frame broke. Mine was yellow -- your orange color came out a few months after I bought mine.

I bought son #1 a Hard Rock about 10 years ago, and he still rides it when he isn't using his Cannondale Rush.

My oldest bike is your age. :) You guys have seen the pix before

Traveler5 09-17-09 09:00 AM

Glad to hear your bike has held up for so long.

I hope I do as well. I just turned 50 and I'm still getting used to it emotionally. What happened to my 30s and 40s?? It all went so fast. Here's hoping that continued bike ridding will help us all to be strong and healthy both physically and mentally for many more years to come.:beer:

Cheers!

Here is my lastest 'favorite', just finished last month. 2006 Serotta Fierte IT. Fork and frame just purchased as NOS.

And also my 'rain bike' :D Serotta Atlanta that was a craigslist find 18 months ago. It had been sitting in a garage for 10 years with little use.
