There are a lot of cool bikes here in the Foo. This is just a snapshot of my small collection.

1994 Cannondale M600 - love this bike! Completely rebuilt - only the frame, fork and headset are original. Currently wears fenders and needs to have new wheels built.


1962 Eatons Glider. Donated to me by a co-worker and then rebuilt it. Wheels are steel and have seen better days.


All City Nature Boy. Replaced the white cages with black ones a week after this photo was taken. The bike has been put away for the winter now.


Wacky commuter bike. Right now I am riding this bike with the black Brooks saddle shown on the Cannondale. In this picture it wears the saddle from the glider.


2010 Kona Jake the Snake. The last bike I bought brand new. Has since been rebuilt. I was bored and wanted to try out a new look.


Marinoni. Just because. And the white cages from the Nature Boy ended up on this bike. Except for the saddle. Nature Boy and Marinoni each got their own.

Dude... it is like you hang out with a bunch of people who just encourage your habit.

I suspect that come September you won't have trouble keeping up with me if you ride that Marinoni...

Looks like we should schedule a wheel building class too...

I am having a great time with this bicycle habit.

Yes, my wife will let me out of my cage in September for Le Tour de Perogie. I'll prepare by training on the rollers.

Cannondale M600 with old wheels:


Cannondale M600 with new wheels and in commuter mode:



My wife loves the M600 bike and remembers the time it was a frame and fork. She likes wacky commuter too - its the wheels that make her nervous since the roads around here are terrible.

It is the N+1 I sought for a very long time and it came to me with an expert build up (save for the stem and bars).

Paid a fair penny for it but still got a smoking deal as I know how much it costs to do things like this... it is almost 48 years old and consider them to be one of the finest bicycles ever designed.

Strangely enough... I have never owned a BMX bike.

When kids were BMX'n I was already riding a road bike... closest thing to that would have been my CCM Mustang chopper.
