    What the hell is that behind the bike?
    It almost looks like a rotary diesel engine.

    Exactly correct, it's an old Nordberg rotary diesel that was used in the pumping system that manages Lake Okeechobee. There are a few retired engines & pumps on display at a park in Lake Harbor on the south side of the lake. I couldn't resist climbing all over them...

    My brother got this Specialized Hard Rock for me for Christmas, 1998. I bike commuted on it until 2008, and have toured on it twice so far, with another one planned for this spring. It's been a great bike. I've mostly rebuilt it twice (wheels, bottom bracket, cassette/freewheel, crankset), and repainted it last fall.

    Nearing a "finished" (meaning ride-able) product. Posted the first pic a while ago, but wanted to show the progress made.

    Don't have a real "before" shot, but this is just after painting and new headset & fork. I started with a Trek Mtn Track 850 from 1994.


    Now, I've got new everything else; BB, cranks, pedals, chain, rear cassette (11-34), wheels, tires, seatpost, headset, front fork, stem, handlebars, and now bar-end shifters. I just need derailers and brakes to be done.

    Looks pretty slick, nice job! Is that a Surly fork?

    @chris_in_miami It is indeed. It is the LHT, but I didn't want the branding because a lot of bikes get stolen around my office. I started scraping the stickers off, but then realized I was damaging the paint, so stopped when I got to "Sur".

    Most of the work is done. Its a mid or late 80's Schwinn High Sierra. All I have left are some little things and some dialing in. I will eventually build a wheelset for it, but not in the very near future.

    Looking good degan! I need a stubby stem like yours for my Rockhopper. I'm feeling a bit too stretched out due the length of the top tube...

    Thanks, I happened to have that stem in a pile of parts and thought it would be perfect, seeing that the top tube is pretty long. Also, its super tall. So far I've spent about $50 total on the whole thing. Everything else I already had or traded things for it.

    Here is my 1984 Ross Mt. Rainier. I have really enjoyed this bike. I just recently ordered a Long Haul Trucker and while I'm looking forward to it, in some respects I feel I'm cheating on the Ross.

    Love the handlebars and overall look on the Ross. Makes a good ol' fashioned "country bike". I'd never get rid of it, just will it to someone you really love when the time comes.

    Yeah I'll never get rid of it. I changed to those bars a couple of years ago. It was fun wrapping and shellacking them. I really enjoyed the results. I bought this bike new and it's never let me down.

    About the same time I added the bars I added the B72 Brooks. I walked into a bike show in Iowa and asked if they had a Brooks by any chance. The guy replied, "Sort of." He pulled out a dusty old looking Brooks and said he had traded someone for it. I got it and a new seat post for $50. It turns out the seat was new and had never been installed on anything. I cleaned the dust off, treated it and it was comfortable immediately.

    Riding on the B72 made it difficult to decide what to put on the LHT. I almost went with a Champion Flyer. My original thought was a B17. I did finally decide on the B17 Special Honey with the copper rails and rivets.

    Yeah, I never heard of the Street Stomper, either. Obviously a variant of the Rockhopper. Cool!

    200X Marin Rocky Ridge on my first tour to the San Juans and then in Long Beach, WA on my Pacific Coast tour. Gear volume is slowly going down!
