If one were to get a Vanilla for 1k, run fast before the owner catches up to you. Try well north of that.

I went riding for a short jaunt in the snowy BS in Denver today. Needed some "milk sandwich" supplies ;)

I was going to wait to post pictures of my bike in this thread until I had gotten a silver stem and silver cranks, but whatever. It is perhaps the dorkiest bike in the city of Denver, kickstand and...

Oh, I think anything that works is perfect in my book. This bike gets what I need done. My comment was more toward the people who think a folding bike HAS to be a brand new Brompton or BF. Beautiful...

For the record, I got my answer today. I brought my check-in-bag with me, and sure enough it fits PERFECTLY with zero disassembly. The Getaway V may be a completely obsolete and gigantic POS, but it...

I greatly prefer my classic styled clips and straps. I know a lot of people sing the virtues of the Holdfast style straps, but they were awful for me. MKS medium clips and a set of decent leather...

If the above device is his fabricated tool, then this man is far beyond even the LBS as far as understanding of the tool. That design is perfect. I'd say he's got the hang of it.

So what you mean is that you've finally given up hope on ever being cool?

I'll get a decent video next time we get some snow (probably later this week honestly.) For now, this is the only decent "snow shot" I have. This was after riding to our current watering hole....

That's a valid criticism, but that doesn't mean it isn't leather. I personally think Brooks overcharges for it for sure, and the bar end plugs suck major pole, but the wrap is actually pretty good if...

Thank you, it's not even that big of a gear for christ's sake. I've never, ever, had to walk it. Even on my ride up Mt. Carbon and back down on my way to Red Rocks.
