*looks around, decides to post here*

(Actually, I think this is my fourth post here, but I was waiting until I actually had a bike. )

I'm 19, live in Ohio, and am getting into biking for commuting part of the way to work. (Yeah, I found that forum already. )

I'll admit, last time I rode a bike was a few years ago, but based on the 10 feet that I rode my new (old) bike, I think I'll pick it back up just fine.

The cage is an 86 VW Golf diesel... 43.5 MPG for the win. And I can juuuust fit the bike inside with the front wheel taken off. A bit tight fit on the rear wheel... not sure if it'll fit fully aired up. I might retrofit 700c wheels - I think that comes out to an 0.3" reduction in standover height, which is good for me. (It's a BIT big on me.)

So, here she is:



A Schwinn World... 10 speeds of fury, and all of $30. So, can I stay?

You can stay, but we need better pictures over at the Classic & Vintage forum (or did I miss them?).

Welcome to BF!

East Hill, only working camera I've got is a camera phone.

I guess I could pick up a pack of AAs and get my mom's camera working again (I think that's all it needs, but it hasn't been powered up in forever...)

-VELOCITY-, I just noticed that the bottle had come partway out in that pic. The bottle is wrapped in a velcro felt side, and then the cage is a velcro hook side.
