Robinson SST

I've had this bike since I was a teenager. I have kids of my own now, but none of them have interest in riding BMX. After thinking long and hard, I decided it's time to let go of my old Robinson.

Early in the season, I was doing exactly this. It wasn't until I chose lower gears and upped my cadence did the pain finally go away.

$35 Fixies at Target

Hey folks. It's been a while since I posted here, but Target has clearance-priced their Kent Fixie at about $35. I picked one up last night just because it's too good of a deal to pass.

Jen Green created this badge for a bike I built for the PA Breat Cancer Coalition back in 2007. The pictures don't do her work justice; it was like a piece of jewelry.

It's worth about $50, but I'll step up to $75 just because I like shiny red things.

Miyata Seven 21 Road Bike

Seller sounds like an older gentleman who has no idea about this bike. He has several bikes listed, so I imagine he is a flipper. His ad reads:

I've actually considered a similar colour scheme for this Zeus. Don't be too upset if I end up copying yours a little. :)
