With apologies for the funky handlebar setup. That gets corrected this winter.

Here's a too-small one I sold a few years back... I had bought it a a garage sale for $75, and thought about stripping it of components to move to a larger frame, but this one probably had less than a couple hundred miles on it...

I love black bikes. Black and chrome are tough to beat aesthetically in my book. Sadly I am without one currently.

My 1981 RIH sitting creekside.

After acquiring this bike a few months ago I did some research and found that there was but one bike shop in US that was importing RIH bikes, the now defunct 'Big Wheel Ltd' which was located at 340 Holly St in Denver, CO and run by Chris and Jack Vangent. I'm really curious as to how many were actually sold in the US. Regardless, it is hands down one of my favorites.

Here's a link to some more pics that I took the day after I got it. Note the saddle swap

Black bikes??!
For the longest time, that's all I had in my stable.....







Doesn't help when I had such a binge for "graphite" bikes in the past few years.....
But since then I had learned to love blue and red bikes too!
