Thanks Brent! Beautiful city. Some of those hills must be a bear to climb.

even here it's only acquired through a secret network of behind the counter beer store connections. You have to know which day to go there, who to ask for, do the secret handshake and only then at best they will sell you 3 bottles at a time. And it was actually my wife who figured this all out, they won't let me near the stuff.

The Younger is supposed to be even harder to get - haven't had it yet.

I wish they'd just make more of the darn stuff.

EDIT:
My wife apparently had it(the elder) on tap last summer at Teresa's in Wayne, Pa.

Sounds like you have a great wife.

I tried the Younger at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia last year...it was delicious and very potent.

Monks is one of the things I miss most about Philly...I actually the beer menu (book) from there around here somewhere. Somehow after too many Chimay's it followed me home, years ago. For a while Monks was my neighborhood bar.

Post-ride Chimay, yum.

My main riding spot for the holidays is just over one mean steep hill to these guys (sorry for the corny tourist office photo).

I've been aging a triple with some Campy bits. May have to break it out soon.

My mother put all our old pic's on disc's and I was just looking through one and found this from 1977, me on my old Raleigh Commando. I had forgot'n what it was from the time I rode it till now, all I remember'd was how painful the seat was "like sitting on a brick".

Looking it up on the net I was surprised at all the info on them. There's one on ebay now, $580 US. > https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&r...61965928,d.dGI
I just found out there was a recall on them because your pants would get caught in the chain and guard, I think I remember that happening often.
I don't remember what the full suspension bike was called but I inherited it from my brother at some time. Anyone remember the name of it ? It weighed a ton.

The sights around town, here, in Lund, Skåne, Sweden. Some pictures actually of the street that I live on and my little, itty bitty house. Also, the locked laundry booking system here for the shared laundry (note the paper stuffed into some of the slots!).







For the record, if Monk's was in my neighborhood, I'd be drunk and full of mussels all of the time. I guess I'll have to do without the mussels!

What a gorgeous town. We don't have anything that looks like that. Thank you for showing this little bit of your world.

I guess you folks might enjoy some photos of Greenwich Village. It's full of tourists who are always taking pictures. I could get away with that, but I wonder if it will make me look like a tourist.

jbchybridrider, no wonder that seat hurt you. The bike was way too big for you at the time that shot was taken.

I'm pretty sure we didn't have the Raleigh Commando in this market. We did have the Raleigh Chopper, which was pretty neat.

No problem. I'll have many more to come. It'll be a lot better once my bikes and other stuff get here in two months. :-( Fortunately, the city is very walkable and the public transit is probably the best I've ever encountered.

Those are great photos, it seems like a wonderful place. What is this 'boxy' looking thing with the blue light?
How does this laundry system work? I assume people are not stuffing cash in there.

It's a public tire pump. It's so ridiculously bike friendly here. In fact, the street I live on is "gäller ej cykel" or basically bike and foot traffic only. My grocery store has bike tubes (Dunlop valves!) and all different kinds of accessories, but no dryer sheets or clothing hangers :-(

The laundry is free, but you have to book your time by locking your device into a time slot for the month, then you can rebook the next time after you do your laundry. It's a bit unusual and most people have a hard time understanding.

Well I was just turning 7 at the time of photo and the bike was my chistmas present possibly christmas day or day after. If you look a the ad Raleigh were targeting 7 to 11 year old's so it shows my parents put some thought into it. I think it was adjusted some and my parents would have thought I would grow into it. But dam that seat hurt!
