wow what a lot of knowledge!

Wow I'm so excited to be on this forum! I love my bikes like my own limbs (and shouldn't a good bike be an extension of our body?) and feel right at home here. I'll attach pics of my limbs (tee hee) in case anybody's interested. : ) Anne
p.s. - the Schwinn is my beater bike, mostly just for dirt trails (Town Lake) around Austin. The Miyata has done the MS 150 (not by me) and now 2 triathlons (Danskin and Rogue Women's Tri).

Hello LMM, you've done a nice job with the Miyata, but I am intrigued by the handlebar arrangement on the Schwinn...perhaps a front view?

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

Yes, very nice. That definitely allows for a variety of hand/wrist positions .
