    (just for fun)Do you and your significant other's bikes make a cute couple?

    Hahaha I overheard a conversation today and thought it's kind of silly but fun. Anyway it was two college kids talking about buying "matching bikes" not in the sense that they buy two of the same bikes but somehow their bikes make a cute couple.

    Do yours? what do you think?

    my girlfriends 7100WSD and my mountain bike? (the bike I ride with her most all the time) I dont hardly think so.

    However, My 2009 Sirrus (blue) and her 2007 7100 (silver and blue) would likely match quite nicely But, since we ride a canal path that is crushed gravel with some rough spots here and there, I ride my MTB. This summer we are going to take some road only trips, and then I will take my Sirrus

    Depends on the bikes I guess.

    Here are a couple of pictures of our Twentys and our full sized Ralieghs.

    I love that saddle Adam. I wish brown would have worked on my Roubaix. I threw on a honey b-17 for my commuter (because it cost $50) and being the commuter i couldn't justify the nicer saddle

    I blame Russ. He shouldn't be allowed to post pictures like this...

    Sorry Mr beanz and lucille, those don't count. You have to have the matching his and hers, like matching bike brand and color bikes, jerseys, helmets,etc.

    They are matching. Both Specialized Sirruses, just different colours. No way we'd ever get same bikes in same colour. ;-)

    Ours don't go together very well but it's better than the $20 mountain bike she had. I still need to do a lot of work to her bike. I'm thinking about putting the 26" wheels back on it because it doesn't handle great, but that would require a lot more stuff. Our bikes have different personalities for sure. Pretty bad pic too!

    July of '83 on Mackinac Island. The pic in my sig was last year.

    Hers is a '76 Schwinn Varsity Sport and mine is a '71 Schwinn Varsity...that is what you were wondering about, right?

    The recumbents are an '07 Sun EZ Sport and hers is an '09 Sun X-1.

    I'd say yes, but the closest thing I have to a g/f currently rides with me and operates the rear brake.
