Here's the three I have photos of: My 912 current favorite, my old commuter I'll hang to as all weather bike, and the new commuter my 912s long lost twin They're both '84s. I've only been riding the 1000 for a week, but it may be challenging the 912 for favorite ride. We'll see after the "newness" wears off.

We also have a Trek 26" wheel tandem I converted to a road bike with smaller tires, road bars, etc., but I don't have a photo of it.

@Kingfisher, I agree. It's an outstanding, amazing picture. Have it printed at the drug store and keep it. I find it more satisfying to print the best pictures. Looking at them on the computer is nice, but nothing beats a print.

I thought I had already posted here. Guess not.



Top: 2014 Felt Z100

Bottom: 1987 Schwinn Sierra (made by Giant)

Both are equipped with Schwinn 20-function bike computers ($11 on eBay), garage door openers (strapped on the stem with old inner-tube, cut just so), iPhone mounts on the top tube, and a rechargeable speaker velcro-strapped to the head tube.

The Schwinn is the bad weather, shop & barn, visiting yo' momma, tool hauling grocery getter. I slapped some fenders on her a couple weeks ago.



EDIT: THE FENDERS WENT ON THE BIKE, NOT MOMMA.
