It surely will as many of us can't, won't, don't care or want to remember and seize any and all opportunity to post our bikes. Besides all that, there are several new/er members that haven't seen them yet.

Do these count as red, or mostly red?

Thanks, realized that's not a current pic. Here's how it's setup now and how I rode it most of last year. Thinking of taking it farther with either a brand new Ultergra R8000 build or a nice Campagnolo Record Ti 10-speed build.

I've posted this before, but what the heck, the bike is still red. (I no longer own the car.)



If you had a bike that was sort of pink and sort of orange, would it be pirange or oink? I really need to know.

Might as well get mine in...

I do everything with my track (tarck?) bike - spent the past few months working on building up my endurance for fixed Randoing on it. But I am awful about hydration and nutrition and paid for it a couple weeks ago - I bonked really badly near the end of a pretty darn long one and needed assistance to get home. So I'm taking a little break from riding ultra-distances

Here it is when it was set-up for my Randoing - but now its in pieces being rehabbed and reconfigured to chase roadies. Maybe I'll post it again when its ready...

Last spring, my wife and I took our bike on some errands. I gotta say, handling more than half of the pedaling gets difficult when there are cargo and hills.
