So, after 170+ photos of beautiful, 50+-er's blue bikes, you figured a tacky*, stock, watermarked photo would look good, here?

*Not the lass, she's attractive and tasteful. It's the watermarking that's tacky.

A blue bike thread? Here's a photo I took the other day while helping to setup for an event. It's of a kids bike that I keep around for when friends and family visit.

I've put more miles on this bike than any other. Fits me like a glove, and corners like it's on rails with the stiff frame and Panaracer Gravelking tires. Cannondales are not just fast in sprints and climbs, I'm convinced I can descend faster on my Cannondale too.

It's an original Criterium Series from 1988. The fork is a steel one I found at the bike co-op, may have from a Lemond, not sure. Stripped the paint, polished the metal, and then clear coated it, it's holding up well, and I like the way it looks on this bike. Stem is also from the co-op, came off a high-end Bianchi. Brand new Tange headset, 165 mm cranks, 32 sprocket low gear, I love this thing.

Straight blade forks look cool.

1982 Mercian Colorado originally built as a team-issue bike for a master's class racer on the Harvest/The Spoke/Mercian team in Colorado that produced Marianne Martin, winner of the 1984 Tour de France Feminine. Acquired as a bare and stripped frameset and currently wearing a functional melange of scavenged goodies -
