    Lets See Your Bikes!

    I was just wondering what the 50+ year olds are riding on their journeys and travels these days - vintage or new, commuter or racer, touring or fixie, or maybe something else?

    Here's mine, I just got her last week, a Miyata 1400A, all-aluminum model, down tube shifters and all! Makes me feel like a kid all over again! Life is good! -

    Wow, after seeing those 'bents, my Z85 seems so unworthy.

    Those bents are awesome. My bike is the red Defy in the photo, sometimes I ride my wife's trike, when she lets me.

    At least I could ride yours in NYC. Those other ummmm, bikes, wouldn't stand a chance! Nice Felt!

    I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Felts. Never owned one, but they sure look cool!

    Yes Jan, very pedestrian. Thats exactly what I was thinking...

    You and Blazing Pedals are in the "something else" category for sure!

    Hi,

    I thought one of these threads already existed. I don't have the time to look for it right now, but if I'm wrong I'll post later.
    Thanks.

    ^ Most all the threads here already exist in one form or another. I don't think I'd go quite as far as Shakespeare, so I'll just say there's not much new under the sun.
