Here's the old 2-speed Le Tour 650B conversion that I was using for the winter. It's going to become a 5 speed later this year.

For the summer I'm riding a Velo Sport Prestige. I swapped out the 27" wheels for 700x28c in order to fit fenders. I can't get enough of this bike, but it could really use wider tires for handling all the potholes.

Finally, I've got a recently acquired Bianchi Nyala that I can lose without feeling too badly about it. I use this to get to trail runs or anytime that I need to leave it unattended for quite a while. The frame came cheap from a local bike shop, and I put it together with spare parts. Don't let the photo fool you. It looks nicely beat up in person.

Thanks. Up until last year I've always had just one bike. I don't know what happened.

Here is are a couple of new additions to the stable...

The Schwinn cruiser I bought because I could, fun ride, plan to make a couple of upgrades to it.

The Giant Melbourne needs a couple of tweaks then it is off to Boston for my car free son to use as part of his transportation mix.


Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

Edit: Added this night shot since that is the time of day I typically ride.
My current 'ride' an extremely modified Huffy Rock Creek dual suspension bicycle.
Seat and drink holder from a Huffy Cruiser, custom rack, Huffy Pannier bag, just replaced the pedals with new alloy (cause cracked the OE), and I also have a bag sits on top of the rack to hold a weeks worth of clothing (mostly work clothes as I work out of town a week at a time) - on another note - I bring my bike with me out of town so that I can go where I want when I want after work (company truck with me out of town, but they do check mileage and I'm not getting chewed for running the company truck all over town, I don't bring the truck home FYI).
