My Blue Titan, eleven years ago and last October. Frame is fully chromed with paint so thin and fragile that unpacking caused flaking. Touch up + DIY clearcoat preserved it. Don

I'd have dug this out sooner but it was blocked by the log splitter that I was avoiding having to use until it became necessary; trunk chunks on the lawn needed to be moved out of the way so landscaping could proceed and you only want to move those things once. Plus, we need to get this wood aged for next heating season anyway.

My wife's RANS Wave. Nice little bike that she seldom uses so I copped her pedals for use on one of my bikes.

Since I still haven't set up a photo bucket to post pics on here I feel it's an appropriate line to add to the intro

🎵HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY BIKE🎵

It's got old steel rims
A couple shims
Oh what Raleigh could do
Has anybody seen my bike.🎶

I don't even have a blue bike, just the thread title caught my eye for the same reason and I wanted to see if anybody else caught it. Joss Whedon is a god in our house.

I still have this bike, it's just not blue anymore:

These can't be all the blue bikes here. I think I chose a cryptic thread title.

My English level is insufficient to make poetry. This is my main ride, Vitoria mod. Vintage, Vitoria is a small spanish builder, I bought the bared frame and I built it focused on comfort and cheap reliability.
