This used to be a bunch of rocks until I crushed them into dust...
oops - the 05 red Poprad
1988 Peugeot Triathlon, 49d cranks, DC centerpulls, orig 105 derailers, unfortunate Easter egg color. It fits better than I could have ever imagined a bike fitting. I worry that I will break it someday. That will be a sad day.
I wish I could find a pump long enough to use the li'l peg under the top tube.

We don't life, for be sad- Peter Sagan
It is a far easier bike to propel than one would think... I have one leg that does not work at 100% and the low contact pressure on those 4 inch tyres offsets the weight, the lower gearing, and fact it maintains it's speed fairly easily means that a gimp like me can ride this over a lot of challenging terrain.
It climbs really well with the gearing it has (3 speed) and an 8 speed wheel is in the works for more of that.
Nice fat bike. In particular I dig your rack/utility fashion........
My rychtarski in gravel mode with 32mm tyres.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
Bone stock right now. May change out the rear cassette at some point to give more hill climbing gearing but it is not an absolute necessity.
Handles very well on the road and in the trails/fire roads. The brakes absolutely SUCK, doing some research to investigate alternative set ups.
Great bikes guys, keep them coming!
