    2006 Foo Rigs Only

    A bunch of us got or built new (at least to us) bikes this year - thought it would be fun to have a thread with ONLY those new rigs! Refurbs are OK too

    Since I started riding again this year all my rigs are new to me except for my mtb which I did a bunch of stuff to.

    Here's my Downtube folder and my mtb (halfway to being refurbed there) hanging out at the Savoy:



    My mtb as it is now minus new al cranks:


    My Russian folding bike - 44 pounds of steel:



    And my new Nishiki Sport that my friend's old roommate left behind (pre-furbed):



    It's getting a bunch of upgrades come January 2nd or so

    Tom? Siu? Pheard? Others?

    Built the road bike in early December:



    Then bought the new snow bike a few weeks ago:

    Parents house.

    But even if it was mine.

    Is there something wrong with floral print?

    This is my Flyte build. You guys are lucky, most people only see a cloud of dust and the back tire.

    Not bad, considering the studded tires. I didn't like the ride of the stock Vittoria Randoneur Xcross tires that came on it at all, made it feel really slow and sluggish, I think the Klondikes roll better even with the studs!

    Yeah - it wasn't much of a problem for me to carry around but it was funny watching others try to lift it I had a lot of stairs to climb and the folding takes longer then newer designs with QR.


    And Tom, I know, I know! One day - have to get the bike going first even if it means just sitting on the seatpost for a while
