my now ten year old Eclipse Titanium
I got my bike in 97 ... it was a very cool bike when I got it (I love that bike) - it's Russian titanium . It never stayed locked more than ten minutes alone outside for fear of being stolen.
The yellow is cuz I got hit in 1991... everything is yellow (at the beginning even my shorts, gloves, shoes had some yellow). Drivers just have to see something. AM a little less paranoid these days.
Didn't ride after that untill I got my Eclipse bike. An old beauty ... titanium lasts forever, there's not a scratch on the frame. funny all my equipment looks used now - even me. Geez. Time has this effect on everything
