    Like Butta!

    I have a few more adjustments to make and she'll be tuned in. I'm doing it myself.
    With the carbon Charismas on it, the bike is right at 15lbs. (I know you didn't ask. But I had to tell it )

    Yes...I have too many bikes.

    My 1940 CCM with a little fixation going on... it still needs a front brake.

    kv - There's nothing wrong with shameless cross posting... is there ?

    I have bikes that fit into so many categories and know that some folks don't get around the forums as much as some of us do.

    For example:

    My 1955 Lenton is a vintage fixed gear road and touring bike that I also commute on from time to time...

    My 1963 Peugeot is also a vintage fixed gear road bike that I also use for commuting and rather utilitarian riding.

    Your Kogswell makes my bikes sad because they remember when they were also young and pretty.

    kv - The Lenton is a page back and you did comment on the old biddie although I know what happens when you get overwhelmed by bike porn... LOL.

    But once again... and with a different pic of Bridgette (my '63 Peugeot)

    Seriously ... that is a nice looking ride you have there.
    Thanks.

    My name is not Fred. But when I ride that bike I am one.

    I'm probably a Fred on this one too.

    Since it was sunny out, I was most likely riding the Litespeed. Besides, didn't someone cause your rear brakes to drag? <queue mysterious music for the conspiracy theorists />

    Are they tubular?

    I really like the look of those zondas, Mr Campy-Convert

    Those Kogswells are beautiful. I still kick myself for not finding a way to come up with the money when they were still available. Looks good, even with the retro-grouch stem.

    That one does look more familiar. Maybe if you post a picture of it from the rear.

    The rear wheel was only rubbing the frame for the last 2 miles - near as I can tell.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Bikes don't get jealous... that is why I can have twelve of them... or is it 13 ?

    I don't get confused like this when it comes to women.

    One is an easy number to remember.

    Fort Gestus. Uncle and I are building it up next week. Pictures of my cheap fixed gear project coming soon as well. Life is good.

    Wow, some people have some very nice bikes, some people have wicked photography skills, and some lucky barstids have both.

    Here is some of my fleet.
    The RANS is my daily vehicle and touring machine. The big chainring is a 62 and gives me a top gear of about 96 gear inches.
    The blue Healing Cruiser (NZ made Raleigh 20 Copy) is my fixie for fun and exercise. It is a bit low geared at 65 gear inches.
    The Humber Sports is just for cruising around, even though it has a four speed dynohub.
    The Burco is a five speed commuting bike and very comfy to ride as well.
    The MTB was free but I've put a comfortable saddle, new grips and front brake pads on it an now it owes me $40. It's just used for playing on flat single track and rail trails and the like.

    I do have more bikes, including Bikerton and Dahon folders and several very old roadsters, a couple of other small wheeled bikes and a couple of pre WWII racing bikes. But they either don't get ridden much or need restoration.

    I rolled down to the shop yesterday and besides spending some time polishing up a rather nice Peugeot mixte also upgraded a few things on Jenny, my Trek 6700. My daughter named her and the name has stuck.

    She's been such a good girl over the past 4 years and has been incarnated as a fully geared HT, as an ss, a rigid 4 speed commuter, and is now back to being my XC and singletrack bike that's running a 1 by 7 drive.

    I had parted out a '92 Rocky Mountain Hammer and I had the rather nice hand-built RM wheels (Deore DX hubs laced to Wolber dw rims) and a Deore DX rear derailer kicking around so decided that Jenny deserved these. The fork (A Manitou Elite) was part of the trade for the RM frame which my friend is building up into a bike for his daughter.

    As my rigid commuter:

    Deore DX was some good stuff back then. Good choice!
