Register with photobucket, put your photos there, and copy the URL with this [IMG ] URL [/IMG ] either side of the URL, just dont have the space after the end bracket.

Here's my Rocky Mountain Sherpa loaded up for a weekend tour. Killer bike right out of the bike shop. I call this bike a hand-built bargain but that's a true understatement.

Cheers,

Here's my two - I divide my time between a my current affectation, taking a hard nose/hard tail mountain bike and converting it to pavement and packed trail riding - a 1993 Bianchi Nyala:



and my love for the traditional - a 1969 Dutch Magneet Sprint, a typical low level pre-Bike Boom mass market bike upgraded for long distance running. Yes, I'm still a believer in steel cottered cranks, although I'm starting to look for a three ring TA setup:

My 1989 Bruce Gordon Ti RNR setup for the Divide Ride 2003. Beckman panniers on BG racks. I have been very happy to ride this bike on any terrain only limited by my handling skills.

How I was loaded for the UP tour, and yes, it's a kid trailer! Worked pretty well all in all!

You must be a young 'un.

Its not too long ago that nearly every Sports/Racer bike had gear shifts there. Downtube shifters.

Simple, light, reliable and out of the way, until needed. Only problem is when you get older and fatter they are harder to reach!

Armstrong continued to use those on his climbing bike in the TDF up untill the end, since it shaved a few more grams off his bike's weight.

Well I'm in my 20's, but I have only been into the scene for about 7 years. Now that you call them 'Downtube Shifters' (which makes sense) I have heard of them, just never seen them!
