Oops! Forgot about this one, a recent acquisition. My $10 Raleigh Tourist. Looks like it's worth every penny and I almost bought another one like it last night, but sanity prevailed and the co-op is closed until Saturday. Lucky me.

Here's mine:

First up is the sweet riding Bob Jackson:






My Schwinn Circuit (Scott era) I foolishly sold.






My current Schwinn Circuit and this year's Strava KOM killer!







Finally the Schwinn Circuit I'm working on to turn over to my son.





Oh yeah, and there's also this one. My winter ride a Raleigh Mojave 8.0. 42lbs of winter riding glory, LOL!
