Do searches for different color bicycles. That will bring them up.

As far as old people, my dad rides his foldie.

I am old, and I ride old-fashioned bikes.

One of my lowracers:

Those may be the first 'bents I have seen that I would lust after.

Mort Canard 04-13-13 05:36 PM

My two road bikes are both vintage rides.

The first is a Dutch Gazelle built on a frame that I bought in Holland in 1976. I hung all the parts on it myself.

The second is a 1986 Team Fuji that I bought a little more than a year ago and rehabilitated.

These are some of the bikes that made my blood boil back in the day. These days they just make me smile. :D

I'm really enjoying this old Jeunet. It has a nice Campy tubular wheelset with cyclocross tires. Nice cushy ride, and I dont worry about hitting pavement breaks.

I don have pictures, but I ride a Rans Stratus LE and a TerraTrike Cruiser. I ride in comfort.

Dudelsack 04-13-13 05:54 PM

I ride this for rides under 15 miles and/or with my daughter:

This is my bent. Looking at the stealth fighters in prior posts gives me a sense of equipment inadequacy, but whatever:

This is what I ride when I go near the zombie farm:

I'll see if I can find some old people. Really? :notamused:

Jim, I can see you're new, but I've got to warn you, not everyone here thinks of themselves as "old".

OK,I'll play... Here are the ones that are currently being ridden.

When you're "old people" you can get away with riding stuff like:
Nashbar bike with framebag
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=310581
GMC Denali
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=310580
with fairing

Do you buy chain lube by the barrel?

Luvin' this old iron since mine's a 'modern' '86 Trek tri series. I've got to get me a camera! Grey metallic with Brooks, red bar tape and red Silca pump and have the beefy Matrix touring rims and Continental rubber for the streets.

Four of these have moved on, three more current bikes are not shown, and I'm still building one (a modern Leader steel frame).

Some pretty hot um bikes here.

big john 04-13-13 07:35 PM

About a year ago I bought this Seven used. It is an amazing bike, handling in the mountains is great, but the ride is pretty stiff.
http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u...hn53/003-2.jpg

I also ride off road sometimes.
http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u...john53/019.jpg

Before I got the Seven I put about 30,000 miles on this Gunnar.

This was at the Tour of Dallas a last weekend. I took the train in so I strapped my tennis shoes to the back along with a dry shirt.
