hello from Bezerkeley!

I just commuted to work today (UC Berkeley campus) for the first time, and it feels great. Much faster than walking and gets my heart pumping since it's an uphill ride... but of course it's a nice breezy downhill ride on the way back

i'm riding an old Peugeot road bike. The gears are kinda noisy when i change gears, and i have to change it precisely otherwise it makes this grinding sound... but it's still FUN

Hello xafofo, let's see some photos of your Peugeot over in the Classic & Vintage forum!

Check out the Northern California regional forum, too.

Welcome to BF!

I actually just took pics of my bike yesterday... i'll post pics when i get the chance

i have no idea whether my bike would be considered classic or vintage. i would guess it's about 20 years old

All Peugeots are classic!

Well, if it still has a lugged frame, it works for us .

Do you consider yourself an abnormally smart liberal person, or did you move to Berkely recently?

Just kiddin.

But seriously, it's a nice place to ride. Plus that co op bike shop is awesome.

And now I want some Zachary's.
