My only singlespeed ATM. Looking for some tires with meatier tread - the Fat B Nimbles don't have enough grip for how wide they are.

A chrome Pista makes me oddly nostalgic.

I admire your gumption, @Carcosa, for doing this and hope that someone steps up to do the same for the geared bike thread, and also that a mod is on the ball enough to lock the '17 "post your bike pic" threads before someone inevitably posts something new in them ;)

Meanwhile - I am going to take the liberty of posting an old pic of my bike here as a placeholder to get it on this 1st page, 'til it warms up enough for me to go out & take some new ones...

love their bikes. This looks so nice. But it looks like your hoods aren't aligned and it's making me :twitchy: :lol:
Also, how is it standing

Newish. Since October. I feel like a need to put my Flite on for a photo though so I can be in this thread.

only saddle that matters

Not as great of a photograph as previous entries, but at least it was actually taken in 2018. Here is my beast of unknown origin in full winter commuter mode:

How effective are the bar mitts? What kind of gloves do you wear with them?

Hadn't had this bike fully assembled in a while and forgot how much I love riding it. Threw it back together this afternoon and wheeeeee!!!

Seat tube angle looks steep on that georama, wondering if it’s a thing.

They are amazing. My gloves are Endura Deluge II, which do fine to about 25F. With the bar mitts I can ride at -10F without problem on my 4.5mi commute. I haven't had a chance to test them at even colder temps yet. Above 25F, it's too warm to use the bar mitts and gloves, but it is very easy to remove the bar mitts.


That Georama looks like fun, I sure do love a bike with a steep seat tube.

Like that bike! What size tires are those? Do you feel the bumps a lot?

Holy seattube angle, batman!

I want to build a bike like that Georama so bad but I know it would never get ridden. I'd just stare at it lovingly as it hung in my garage.

Do it! This was my daily ride for a lot of the past year. Just a couple of small modifications and it can handle just about anything. Did a century on it this fall, and a 10 mile commute this morning:
