The Photo Thread of You Riding Your Bike aka Action Jackson

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)

The Photo Thread of You Riding Your Bike aka Action Jackson

Take a look at these pics and what do you see?





I see people who are loving and riding their bikes. Since we have a thread about your bikes, let's make this thread about you riding it.
Here's me in a match sprint race which wasn't all straight

I'm riding my 1x1 as a FG during one of our weekly night rides. Picture was taken back in January when it was about 20deg.

Yep. That's been one of my all-time favourites as well since it was originally posted. Aside from the occasional spring downpour, nothing really qualifies as an epic commute except for snow storms. It's that whole "holy-****-I-can't-believe-I-made-it-home-alive-through-that-****" factor.

its nice to see some grimed up, ridden bicycles as opposed to the shiny clean as a whistle pictures sans riders that we see to often in this forum.

My riding bud took that pic of me. He used a Canon EOS 5D on that shot. When I take pics of my bike it's either my Sony Ericsson K800i or Sony Cybershot DSC-W55

Nice. I've been meaning to take my camera on rides, but I'm too worried for my camera.

i rely on the camera (3.2mp) from the sony ericsson phone to take pics on the go, otherwise the full camera comes with me when I'm not riding. the phone gets the job done adequately where I don't need to have the camera with me a lot

here's a comparison:
