Post Photos of Your Other Gear Obsession!

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

Post Photos of Your Other Gear Obsession!

Here is my other thing:

I wish I could afford some SIGs. They are some damn fine guns. I've got a Springfield XDSC9 and a Ruger LCP in my collection

I'm far more of a musician than a guitarist. But it's all upstairs (guitar, banjo, uke), so you'll have to take my word for it.

I'm also a camera buff, but that's also upstairs. And I'm generally a one-gear person.

As in, I have no desire to own more than one of a particular instrument kind, or multiple cameras, etc.

Technically, I might have four guitars, but I haven't played two in years, and I've stopped playing the third.

I'd rather have one to grow old with. That goes for instruments, cameras, computers, and bicycles.

There are six bikes in the backyard, all of them old, but I prefer one of them, so that's the one I ride.

not my photo, but you get the idea.

A modern house on a ocean front cliff, wife, 2 kids, 3 cars, > dozen bikes and a few cameras.

Takes lots the green stuff.

^^ Friggin' sweet!



I've got a couple of crappy old snowboards. I think I like snowboarding even more than I like cycling, so I'll be getting better gear this year.

I majored in music (oops ) so I also have a bunch of music stuff... 2 saxophones (one vintage Buescher alto from the early 30's), studio mixer, Fostex monitors, Access Virus B, Yamaha CS1x, Pioneer CDJ 200s, DJM 300 mixer.
