My newest addition. 2014 Specialized Crave Pro hardtail 29er. 26-1/4 lbs. box stock and she's about to go on a diet.

My newest-2014 Specialized Secteur Elite
This is my newest bike, a State Bicycle Co. fixed gear. My main bike is a 2008 Trek Madone 5.2. I'll be 69 this year and hopefully I will be able to ride my average of 3500 to 4000 kilometers this season.
I've had this 1979 Miyata 912 since it was new and I wasn't old. Here in its latest and really nice riding version. I doubt I will ever get rid of it, unless I give it to my equally tall son. Lately it stays at our winter vacation home on Vashon Island.
I've had this 2003 Rivendell Rambouillet since new, and it was my everyday bike for 10 years, but I think it is destined to be the designated rain and touring bike,
because I recently built up this delightful 1987 Marinoni. I can't imagine anything I'd want different about it, and also can't wait for the weather to clear up so I can get more time on it.
Attachment 367863 Keeps me from getting "old".... Just ride.
Always wanted a Merckx.
Today's ride. It's not a Merckx. Too many consonants. We ride with too many vowels - Peugeot.
And a Soma, more docile of course.
Converted to fixed gear 22 years ago.
Good News - we are now on the DSM V. Haven't looked to see what the definition is, but you may well have a few more years than you thought.
Here is a recent shot of me with my newest bike. It's a leader track racing bike that I built up. I'm going to try track racing this year. I'm 53 years old.
I suggest you try it. What counts is not how well I do. If it's fun and I learn from it, it's worthwhile. I think I could lose spectacularly and have fun at the same time!
And hey, maybe we'll meet on the race circuit. Wouldn't that be a kick?
can you charge those off a USB connector too?
