    Hi Noteon

    Great pics. The one in the snow makes me feel very guilty as my Swift has not been out for a spin for several weeks because of the weather. We had snow, but nothing like you have had. Well done!

    Thanks--but as much as I enjoy compliments, I really just love snow riding. It's hard to keep me out of it, though I wish I had a pair of Marathon Winters. By the time I can afford them this year, the snow will be over, but maybe next winter.

    that's pure gatuitous nudity - a nude model captured in a number of poses against a variety of backgrounds.

    With a gratifying ride afterwards.

    Make studded tyres or chains. Works great.

    Nice job! I don't have time for projects like that, but I admire anybody who can do it and have it actually work.

    Next year.

    Wow, those are some nasty snowy streets you're riding through, Noteon. You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din! What is that commodious sack on the back? Is it quite heavy? I can't make out what you have up front - a rolled up something and a water bottle?

    JS, your Swift is set up somewhat similar to my own, but yes, it's nude.

    Both on the Hudson River Greenway. The middle one was in the 30s, I think. The bottom one was higher, maybe somewhere in the 90s.

    @james_swift: That's really cool. You just gave me my daily dose of awesome. Btw, I thought you had a black (non-xootr) swift?

    Hi Noteon,
    wow--those handlebar "mitts" are just what I need--my ride in this morning was 8 degrees F, and I just can't seem to keep my hands warm. Takes me an hour before I can start using a keyboard!!

    Does it interfere with a handlebar mounted headlight?

    That light sure does look bright in your picture. It better be bright at over $400!

    Many years ago when I was in the Century Road Club I used to live in Inwood, near Dyckman (200th) Street. They used to have 25 mile races in Central Park, so i used to have to ride downtown for the race, at a ridiculous hour of the morning. I went down Broadway.

    I was in a hurry and linked to the page for the headlight/taillight combo package. It was actually $269 (I think) for just the headlight.

    I take Broadway when I'm running late for something, but the greenway is my main artery for getting around the island.

    Billy, no, it doesn't interfere with anything. Here's another photo:

    It certainly wouldn't be fun riding down B'Way c. 2009.

    Here is another Swift Down Under. The chap wrote me an email after googling Swift and found mine.

    What a cool bike--and it has silver fenders!

    They do exist...

    In the spirit of bumping this thread. This was taken at the farmer's market today, with a temperature of 75°F. Ah, California living.

    That's a Cateye cage. They work very nice with cable ties since they have holes for them. These are usually cheap and they don't rubbish the bottles like alloy cages do.
