OK, I also have an 1989 KHS Montana Summit, but no good pictures of it.
Besides, the trike is just so daRn handy for shopping, and is a blast to ride.
2017 Miami Sun 'Traditional', with optional seven speed (14-28) and rear disk brake.
Upgraded since this photo: Lower handlebar and replaced the 36 tooth chainring with a 28 tooth.
(I sometimes pull a 4 wheel garden/nursery cart/trailer (1,400 pound load capacity) with the trike. The 28/28 granny gear helps get up the hills with a heavy load in the trailer/cart.

Must be a common thing. I always wanted one as a kid. Heres my current take on one. Gotta admit, Im probably better off with my 21 speed gearing around here.

There is an old expression - train heavy & hard, race light and smart.

TO that end, i've been riding the tandem as a single on occasional rides.
edit: No intention of racing anyone but myself, but a single sure seems light.

Why tubeless instead of tubular on a 25mm tire?
How do you change it for summer build?

Sorry for the confusing. This bike was a winter project. I don't ride in winter, except my trainer. This bike has 28mm Pro One Tubless Tires as recommended by ENV which I really like!

My latest..... a nice little Jan De Reus:




I've also made some changes to the Serotta CSI, mostly just upgrading to a modern wheelset and modifying an 8 speed cassette to fit the new wheel.




Then this week I've also rotated in the old Bob Jackson that is now sporting a nice Veloflex tubular setup.

1978 Trek TX 900

Just took my 1978 Trek TX 900 out for a 28 mile ride on my favorite local bike trail, the Neal Smith trail. It has good shade, good water views, and some decent rollers. It is a very pretty trail that gets a ridiculously low amount of usage.

Im 63. An ex cat3 3 rider, dirt and street motorcyclist. Been down many times. Broken multiple bones. In deference to the damages done, sold my hard tail and went full suspension this week. Wow, what a difference!

[MENTION=461917]Ald1[/MENTION], how do you like that Infinity?

Care to provide feedback? I'm sincerely interested.

Hi Tim,
I have two bikes. They both have these saddles on them. I started riding last May after a long layoff and tried Selle? SQ Lab, Oval and a few other and I really love thiese Infinitys. The saddle kind of cradles you. No sit bones discomfort at all. If any "breaking in" it would be your leg creases as one pair of cycling shorts became not wearable as it irritated that area a little as compared to my other shorts. Have a few metric centuries under my belt and so far so good. I just got an email from them inviting me to the start of the Race Across America in CA to take sneak peek at some new products just launched (not on website yet). I got interested in them after the testimony of some long distance riders. They do offer a 30 day trail, I believe. Let me know how you make out, if you try one.

^^ Thanks for the feedback. I like things that are different and Infinity saddles interest me. The red/black Trek is definitely an eye catcher. I'll bet you get lots of comments.

Speaking of different - a couple more shots of the Rodriguez fixed gear.
