I, uh, kinda live in Brooklyn, but spend most of my time in Manhattan. I ride a wicked fast Look 595, and work in a tiny nook inside this massive sporting goods store that goes by the name Paragon Sports.

My Look-


I also have an old steel Raleigh sport cruiser thingamajig in my paint booth receiving a new coat, and once finished I intend to commute the 14 miles from Marine Park to Union Square on it. I already know that this is going to suck as the frame and cottered crank alone weighs about 11 pounds!

How'd you guess I lived in Brooklyn!?!?

Looking forward to 5 Borough. I'm going to start from 57th Street this year. No sense starting in Battery Park LOL!

For instance, these 2 5 Borough Bike Tour pictures are above Chambers Street 1 hour apart:


1 hour later:


I rode this bike and finished at 1pm. It looks the same today but with Freddy Fenders, and new tires.


If it rains I'll ride this commuter bike again (1995 Rockhopper). If the weather is nice, I'll ride my road bike.

Anyone up for meeting at Columbus Circle at 7.30am? Might be fun to meet Mr Air, finally.

Svloid, you live next door to me! I live by Clinton and Kane. No racks on your bikes!? This ain't Kansas! Bikes should be USEFUL in Brooklyn! Not mere hobby! What kind of hooks do you hang your bikes from the ceiling with!? I suspect you might be a bike psycho! From your photos, I suspect your pasta is done, the tea is steeping, and you needed a new garbage bag and another roach motel and few more cleaned logo water bottles!

And xdrmusclex, You can't b e slower than me. We should ride the Park together some weekend. Maybe the 12 or 13 of April if you're game. PM me. 4 or 5 laps?

Zacster looks too hardcore for me! Then again, everyone looks too hardcore for my fred self.

Or impressing patrons at my favorite Mexican restaurant using this:


In both cases someone is usually passing me.

Hey guys, I was in Romania for 2 weeks and just got back! How the list has grown! As the weather gets warmer I hope to see more of you around and about , I'll gamble that we will probably run into each other in prospect park this weekend and it is supposed to be nice weather!

Hi All,

I'm moving to Brooklyn in June. will Post my bike when I get pictures. I'm moving from CT where i had open country roads, I'm kinda nervous that an hour work out will take 2 hours with stopping and going. Can anyone relieve my fears that Brooklyn is not a bad place to bike and I can find some decent biking.

I ride a Giant OCR-2
