TXBF: You and your ride

I've noticed probably 12 or so riders on the street this past week, and have no idea if they'd be on here. I might of talked to someone on here in person, and had no clue. Not everyone wears their TXBF jersey every day.

Location: DFW

Ride (upated again 9.8.07 ):

I'm in fort worth. I ride either the trinity trail or lake ridge parkway at Joe Pool lake. I ride with the Texas wheels - the fastest paceline in dfw - or with the Lone Star Randonneurs.

My racing/fast tour bike:


My commuting, touring, randonneuring bike is the red P-38 in the background here:


Least frequently used bike for Tris and the occasional short ride:

Most of the time I am on the magnificent Rocinante. She's an '83 Austro-Daimler mixte. I've put Rosie through the ringer and she always comes back for more.

Dapple is my shopper. With large baskets, front and back and a trailer hitch, I can haul 120+ pounds on this puppy. (Sorry. I don't have a picture of the full bike; it's an '86 Raleigh)

Special Ed is my Hardrock. Mainly for my geocaching exploits.

I built Freeride from the ground up, using only parts that I found in bike shop dumpsters and curbside trash. It's an '84 Miyata road frame, but I widened the forks to accommodate beach cruiser tires. This one is for Sunday rides around the neighborhood with my kids.

(edit) - Here's an older pic of me with my wife & kids. I don't have any of me on my bike.
And a newer image of me that I'm sure I will regret posting here...

Good idea... I still have a rotten time remembering names/faces until I see folks in person, though...

The Trek 1200 I usually ride (other bike is a charcoal Novara mountain bike, usually rolling on slicks)


More recent photo that looks more like I look... Trek 1200 (above) has pulled 40 pounds off the first photo...

the 40lbs off looks good tailchaser. I dropped 25 when I started riding, but have gained most of that back this year.

Do you race at the Velodrome frequently? A teacher at my school is a big bike racer, I wonder if you know him.

I race every chance I get. I also workout at the 'Drome 1-2 times per week. What's the teacher's name? I'd probably know him if I see him...I'm bad with names.

Andrew Armstrong. He is leaving this year to be a full time racer. I think he is pretty good, and he goes to the Drome quite a bit.

Oh yeah...I know who he is. I've heard the talk of him going full time racer soon. He's awsome on the track!!! Actually one of the best!!! He is the one who conducted the velodrome class when I first got into track racing. I've never seen him on the road but I bet he is just as good, if not better.

Well I'll be, that's funny!
The whole past year I bet he had no idea I probably liked bikes almost much as he did in class, heh.

I don't have pics of myself, I know what I look like (I think Cuda does tho).
I usually ride old steel, Serotta, RIH or a distinctively striped de Reus.
the bikes:


I don't have pics of the Serotta but it's an azure blue metalic, white decals.
