How about a little "Eye Candy"?...Show us your Blue Bikes!!

It's been rainy and dreary around here for what seems like forever. I wanna see some blue and if it can't be blue sky, why not pictures of your blue bikes?

So come on, somebody out there must be riding Blue Bikes!

Post some pictures and cheer this Gloomy old man up a little bit.

Pleeeease!!

Blue bikes? Why have Blue bikes. They are heavy-Don't go round corners and the brakes don't work.

My old Nashbar Alpha 5000 Toure. I've since used the components on my Trek 460 frame and and built up the Nashbar with other stuff. Sorry for the lousy pic quality...I think these were taken with a cell phone.

I'm afraid at the moment my bike is more medicine than candy!

But if I can ever get time to even think about it, I'm trying to work toward some new candy. Possibly of the Specialized variety... one of these days.

This was taken in August at the Four Star Ride, formerly called the Boulevard Lakefront Tour.
That's our 04 Cannondale. One of our 3 blue bikes.
