hi all,
not usually a whiner - but krypto has my stuck in the chain, like when I was a little kid. Nuf for now.

Live in Vic, bc - love the weather, cycling, I ride an old Steve Bauer Touring bike, braze-ons..you know.

Used to commute in Van, here for now - like the forum.

Being a biker and a fisherman...I'd ride a Gary Fisher..... ..ya not that funny.

I hate weeds unless they burn well.

Whats up with the Kryto? You mean Krypto didn't replace your lock?

I just use big chain with an inner tube over it and make my bike as ug as possible. Bike theft is pretty rampant here.

Jeff @ Chainchainchain is a very cool mechanic if you ever needs.

Jeff,
contacted Krypto, again...they have promised me they would replace the replacement with another lock.

I am patiently watching the inbox for my UPS w/b again. It seems that they didnt know that I had sent an EVO 2000, and instead sent me a STD replacement.

Weather change again, gone from mild early spring to usual easter rainy weather...

Hey Keayne! Ya gotta Steve Bauer?! Me too!

Mine's a touring, I think. It's lighter than a mountian bike anyway. It's also got eyelets for fenders, racks etc. My Bauer is a man's bike and it's white and dark pink. I've often wondered who they intended to ride it...maybe it's for cruisin' near Lost Lagoon!

Yeah, rain again...

My mtb is 21 pounds.

How light are the Bauers? I hope they are made out of steel....
skinny tires are no fun here.

Heck, I don't even own a scale!

I mean lighter than what I'd think of as a mountian bike of comparable vintage. ('80's, I think.) The tires are thicker than my '74 Triumph but thinner than the kid's BMX's. I'd go look at the size, but it's cold out there...

It's all blossoms

The end of the Van island is a micro-climate, sub tropical.

I'm thinking about riding end to end soon. Ya, 26 inch wheels.

I'll pm the music scene, biking is very nice on the island, and many small islands close\ ferries.

hey zoogirl, i feel better knowing that someone else has a touring Bauer. Mine is a cromo, changed the gearing to a 21, I was messing with it one day and found room for another ring...there was. Someone changed the handle bars to stand-up straight tubes - I finally found a set of drop bars in my size, so I changed mine back to drop. Left the old shifters on the down tube, they kinda took some getting used to, now no one wants to steal it. I also put some spds on it, that was my first set, so I turtled a couple times and lmao, was ok as i landed on soft ground. Realized I set them up too hard. I also found a set of racks for the front and back at http://www.pedalpower.org/ocb.html - cheap, cheap too. But, MEC sells them new for cheap. I also stuck on some mid-range 700's mavic rims, nice firm ride.

Colour, mine is not cruisin' near Lost Lagoon, it's sort of an almost Pewter with metallic flake...i was gonna paint it...not really into the lagoon colour...
