My newest bike. This winter has been brutal in Michigan. The day after I took this pic we got a 8" dumping of snow and it's the middle of March. I need this fat bike just navigate over/around the horrendous pot holes. It's too iffy to ride a road bike.

But when the conditions improve I'll be back on my Trek 520

Maybe old people should be defined first! :)

You can see photos of my bikes at the flickr address in my signature.

Mostly steel bikes, I'm not too fond of the flat handlebar bikes, especially for longer rides. My three newest bikes are the Bianchi, Waterford and Tern. I keep thinking of 1 or 2 more bikes.

You own everything??? How can that be? I own a few things. So do my neighbors. Someone sold you a bill of goods. But that trike looks fast!

I posted this pic over in C&V, but since this thread is about what we ride, here it is again. From today's ride:

I'm now down to two rideable bikes (not counting the four or five still in pieces). I call them my bitsa bikes because they're all made up from bits bought at boot sales or the internet or bits I had in the shed.

The mtb is my 93 Merlin (the British, not the US company) which has served me well for years and the other is the Dawes I've just built up for road use. Just been for a 25 mile ride on it and it rides brilliantly, although still have a few tweaks on the gears to do to get it just right. Drive train and gears are mountain bike because much of my riding is hilly. I've kept the steerer long temporarily until I finally decide on choice of stem and height of bars.

My new rad bike makes me look younger, feel younger and ride faster.

Here's my daily rider/trout fishing rig. TREK 3500 Disk. Just got some of the winter crud knocked off but it still needs a little shot from the pressure washer. Can't wait to hit the Trout Streams. I put a few parts on it, Adjustable Stem, Serfas Rx seat, Palmer Grips, Forte' Dartmoor tires with heavy duty tubes and Tuffie liners. I also got rid of all of that QD junk to keep thieves at bay. I think I have it where I want it.(for now)

I'm 58 and have been doing most riding on this bike . 70's Dawes fixed.

It is sometimes a great pleasure to ride with my old (1963) but always young LA PERLE !

BluesDawg 04-07-14 07:28 PM

This me on my 2011 Specialized Roubaix Expert with Roval SLX-23 wheels. It was taken during my metric century ride last Friday. A good day on the bike.

First post and this is my pride and joy. An unmolested 1978 Raleigh Competition GS with an unbroken in Brooks saddle.
This vintage bicycle is much too dainty for my daily commute so I am restoring a late 90's Peugeot mountain bike.

I'm 56. are two of my new bikes for 2014; 2012 Bianchi Vigorelli (steel) and a 2013 Litespeed T5 (titanium). Most of my peers are riding carbon race bikes. Trek used to be predominant but more and more it's Scott. I have to admit, I have my fair share of carbon bikes too.

Beautiful man, absolutely beautiful! Real. Lugged. Steel. Further discussion not required. I have always found it interesting that Bridgestone, a multi-billion
dollar Japanese tire conglomerate, was in the bicycle business.

Thank you very much! I baby that bike, and will never sell it! Was out on it today for the 30 Days of Riding Challenge in winds up to 43 MPH. I didn't go far!!

Are your legs that short? It looks like you would lower the seats even further if they would.
