Post a picture of your bike(s)

I decided to take pictures of all my bikes. I have started road biking 2 or 3 years ago. I would love to see some of the other bikes people have on gassavers.

This is my most recent bike (yeah a real road bike). A bit impracticable at times because of the thin tires. I bought it this winter for $250. I put a more upright stem on it so I am not leaning over so much.


I bought this 1980ish Ross a a yard sale for $10 it got me across Iowa last year. It needs some bar tape right now.


My silly fixed gear bike. It is fun for doing skids when I get bored. I bought the frame and fork for around $75.

I've got a Schwinn Moab mountain bike, I'll post pics tomorrow. BTW, I see you're from Pittsburgh, do you ever ride the Montour Trial? I'm usually on that every weekend, I ride from Imperial, past Robinson, to Coraopolis and back.

Jason.

Yeah, I have ridden it. I live in Clairton and the Montour trail is in bits and pieces near where I live. So I go on the yough river trail more often.

30hp of Fury!



This one is "the cow"

It used to have a very wide 3 speed transmission as well as front and rear brakes, it's slowly fallen apart to a low speed, no braked bicycle. It has been ran over a few times, but I've been able to fix it by jumping on it and beating it with a hammer, it doens't go very straight, but my Job is close enough it doesn't matter

Today I bought a girl's 18 spd mountain bike for $25 because I wanted some of its parts for a couple of recumbent project bikes I'll likely not have time to build this summer

I've been stockpiling bikes for a few months now. This is the first bike I paid for of the last 4 or 5 I've acquired.

Here's my trusty 30 year old saved-from-the-garbage-truck Raleigh and my incredibly useful utility trailer. (I can't count how many car trips I've been able to replace with bike trailer trips.)

The upside down mountain bike on the roof of the car is a 10-year old GT Karakoram. Hey, it was "mountain bike of the year" when I got it

Schwinn S-25 with the stock knobbies but now have Slickasaurus skinny tires that make it roll a lot easier but it really needs a gearing change and better bearings.

Me on the Electric scooter At Larz Anderson Museum in Bridgeline Mass. I set it up with a 6000 watt motor actually I maxed it out at about 7200 watts with a current limit adjustment.

It is usually stuffed inside, when it goes by car (which is almost never).

That pic was actually taken in the interest of science, and I only ever transported the bike up there one time, to demonstrate why one should never do that.
