I want all of you to know that I really appreciate all the advice everybody has given me. I didnít realize this thread would go on this far and just wanted a couple of questions answered.

First I couldnít understand why my turning was so rough and now I know it is from the knobby tires and not my bad shoulder.

Second I thought I was having an issue with my cassette, but I now know that it was me riding in the wrong gear.

So I did get both my questions answered although it was the opposite of what I was thinking. I started a previous thread explaining how this all came about.

I could have just bought a stationary bike, but I get so bored and depressed being stuck in the house.

My next bike for this neighborhood, $60.



Just kidding, but probably a good idea around here.

Looks like a yard art neighbor had a tug of war with a C&V neighbor and won. Love the backwards fork distinctive.

I like the rattle-canned front tire, too.
