Old Pics Redux, Post Em if You Got Em

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

1895 article about women and bikes, hilarious
"The first women cyclists of New York City seemed to rise in a heroic handful from the earth near Grant's Tomb, on Riverside Drive. That was years ago. To-day, on the broad western highway of the city a dotten line of riders, men and women, forms a fourth parallel to the dark band which the Palisades stretch across the sky, the Hudson's silver width, and the white thread of flying smoke from the trains beside the river."
man i could do this all day

here's a source for anyone looking for more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...torical_images

This is a road I often take as part of my commute. It's paved now.

Does anyone know whether there's anywhere to get high-quality prints of photos like these that would be large enough to frame and hang?

you'd need sizes of the photos that are larger than what people are posting here

check out this pixels to inches calculator: http://auctionrepair.com/pixels.html
you can right click any image in this thread and go to 'properties' and itll show you the pixels, convert that to inches, and thats how large a poster would be at that resolution

Yep. I am a Pcola kid. We came up with the idea for that race right after our first alleycat ever in Pcola this past september. I missed our first race in September, cuz I had to work. But I went to this one.

Ben was one of the Charleston kids right? You are too I assume? Ben could do some crazy barspins. And the last day after the group photo he was trackstanding on a picnic table, but I heard he fell off of it?

Whereabouts? [edit: Oops, nevermind. Found it.] I wonder if that tree is still there. It'd be neat to get a "then and now" picture.

Messy-ass trees to have in your yard, but so very cool.
