Nice. Never seen an Aquila track frame before. That seems kinda dumb for the winter though, I mean, no place for fenders and probably 25c max tires size. Unless you're joking of course.

I was pretty warm coming into work except for my right pinkie which for some reason went numb.

PS. my favorite little trails on the spit that I did yesterday were the sandy ones that go out from the little sailing club, and then some of the beat up service roads where I was practicing bunny hopping into (unforntunately not over) rocks and puddles.

I don't Think he was joking. If and when he starts riding it in I'll let you know, we all park together in the executives' underground. I like that service road to the sailing club ..my daughter and I have ridden into there. She's a champ.

I got up to about 45km/h going down the straight gravel road to the club. It felt like I was just barely skipping over the surface. I haven't ridden on sand for ages either. I should go and ride those sandy trails more as its good practice for riding in snow. Hitting a long patch of sand at a decent speed and fishtailing around a corner is damn fun too. I bumped into a guy with a mountain bike making a camp fire on one of the secluded little beaches. Looked nice and warm. Good idea, we should give it a try some time.

if you follow that road all the way to the end the beach there is really nice .... my daughter and I sit there and look for rocks to collect and the birds lounging around. WE saw a HUGE fish buzz the beach one day, gliding by us nice and slow. It fills my heart with pride that my 9 year old can ride almost that entire pathway from road to beach.

Always Shizzy.. .. though I do except you to make back upto the road without getting off. Her, not just yet...and she's on SS. She's a trooper though, she wiped out on a speed wobble coming down the bridge at Riverale Zoo a couple summers ago, carved and bounced.... got up and rode again. Now she's got bigger wheels and she loves it.

I grew up right in that area. I always had a healthy respect for those hills after I had a nasty spill going straight down the grass hill when I was little. I guess I just hit the brakes wrong because I pretty much just went over the handlebars when it leveled out!

I also had a close call on rollerblades on the path inside the farm that goes up the hill (desperately grabbing onto the chainlink fence adjacent to it!)

There's a nice Bottechia road bike up on CL for $80 and it is a 54; I thought about buying it to re-sell the frame on eBay but I have too much crap around here as it is. It looks nice.

Yeah, he has been trying to sell that for ages now. He was asking $500 about 2 months ago and then it was up on eBay with no bids and now it is back on CL for $396; it is a beauty but I think that without a fork, he really needs to ask for less money.

Hrm, hard to say: 56cm model (measured to top of seat collar); 54cm Top-tube centre to centre

I would guess that it is more like a 54 and looking at it, yeah, it appears to be on the small side. I wonder what happened to the fork?
