Interesting pics of your bicycle

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

That's not my pic, but I've got a setting on my camera where it can isolate a color and turn everything else black & white. It's got another one that'll substitute any one color for another.

Early spring. That's a prototype. I have to work out some issues about load bearing and weight transfer. What you see is--pretty much--what you'll get, except it'll have to shift further back about 4" to accommodate my shoulders. As depicted it's NOT road worthy. Nice thing is I can run all three hard cases and a tail bag.

Constant encroachment of suburbia on California's farmland.



Same bike (different bars and tape, though) at the Capitol.

6 years of self-loathing, drug and sex addiction and flushing $100k worth of mommy and daddy's money down the toilet (while hating them) --- a.k.a. "Art School".

Just kidding, it was all done w/ this simple gadget:



It has a function that allows you to lock onto 1 color (and 1 color only) while all other colors are rendered black and white.

If I can do it, anyone can.

I would also guess there's some imaging software our there that could do the same.

It's called selective color, it can either be done in photoshop and the canon cameras have a built in function to do it, I must say that that's one of the better shots I've seen come out of the in camera selective color function

Nice bikes, I wonder if there is a significant differnece between the ride quality of the RANS and VOLAE? Does the trelis frame of the RANS really stiffen the ride?

My GF and I both ride old-school Visions.. I'm looking to upgrade to a dual 26" wheel SWB setup.. smoke some roadies..
