Here's the MTB:

And I don't have any pictures of my own, but it looks just like this for road/tris:

Shopping for another beach cruiser right now, can't leave either of those locked up outside of a bar.

Here is my road bike. Its is the most recent in a line of race bikes that I have had, but it is one of my favorite. I got it from the last team I raced for before stopping racing for a while. I've also got a stupid fixed gear and a poo brown SS Cannondale.

My road bike project, so far devoid of any actual sprockets An '80s Concorde Toscana, Italian made, but for a Dutch company. It's a relatively high quality frame, with Columbus tubing and neat chrome stays. Apparently the original owner bought it new, raced it for one season in Europe, then hung it up on a rack. My plan is to spec it up to the standard of the Concorde Tour de France entries of the period.

This is my bike on my daily commute to work in the morning. Then I switched up the bars to a nice set of bullhorns.

Mmeade--> Is that a single speed or a fixie? Looks beautiful! Here are my bikes:

That is my road bike. 20.5 lbs of fury .

This is my beater single speed. It is a Schwinn mt. bike from the mid 80s with a 16 or 18 flywheel and new cranks/pedals..

Say what you will. It's durable. And riding it a couple of miles gives me PLENTY of exercise.

I don't have any pictures but my current list of complete bikes, although now the thinnest it has ever been, includes:

Road: 2004 Klein Q Pro Carbon, Campagnolo Record 10, Bontrager Race X Light wheels. 16.25 lbs.

Track/Fixed: Surly Steamroller, with various parts, Chris King headset, Thomson stem Campy Pista parts, etc.

BMX: Eastern Grim Reaper, Spanish bottom bracket, 25x9 drivetrain with KHE Geisha freecoaster hub with aluminum axle studs. Campy Record hiddenset, S&M Redneck LT stem, Fit series 1 bars. Profile racing crankset with ti spindle. It's pretty rad, just over 20 lbs

I'll get some pictures later.

I have my cheap ass chinese mountain bike fitted with "tarmac" commuter type tires.

I like to think of it as my cheap version of a foot powered motard.

It's both! It has a flip flop hub in the rear that you can ride either way.

I've ridden the freewheel only once, and it freaked me out so much that I flipped it back before I commuted home. That probably has to do with my lack of a rear brake, which makes the freewheel a whole lot more dangerous. I typically do a large part of my braking with the drivetrain, and the freewheel makes that impossible.

I'd like to get a fixed/fixed hub so that I can run two different gear ratios in case of hills, but that may come down the road a bit.

i had huffies for awhile.

their weak link is their hardware, the phrase "cadmium plated taffy " comes to mind.

my frames are still around (you could build a bridge out of them) but i got fed up after replacing almost every piece of hardware on the things.

You have to have the pictures hosted on a website. To post them here they have to be .jpg or .gif but they have to be a http:// address. You can't link them directly off your hard drive.

I'm not sure you can link to them from facebook, either. I don't know if they're publicly accessible from there.

All I know is that I've definitely gotten my $99 out of it.

Thinking about selling the Schwinn schoolbike for funds to invest in other bikes I'd rather keep.

I used to own a Cannondale with the Lefty, the only thing I found it was really good for was changing a flat or tire without having to remove the wheel.

The Lefty ain't bad as a OEM "came on the bike" kind of deal, because most used bikes are going to have it anyhow.

However, unless I was loaded and really looking to shave pounds off my bike, I'd rather spend the money on a conventional fork.

I've got a Pike coil, which as a superior fork at only about 1lbs difference, but it costs money to get a reducer headset, a wheel laced, etc.

Oh, and if you ever ridden a Lefty, you'd know to trust it.

So many people say "aren't you worried of breaking it" until they throw it off 5' drops to flat. I'm a big dude at 210lbs, and I'm not easy on the Lefty at all. It runs strong.

My only gripe with it is lack of adjustment. If it had the Motion Control and U-Turn that my Pike did...I would've never bought the Pike.

time for some 29er love :)...

Karate Monkey right after I got the new fork (although i did go back to bb7 up front and sd7 V out back and put the hydro's on my other bike)

shortly before Christmas (when i got a few fun toys)...

redline setup as a commuter/fitness bike... which is how it sits... with a titec H bar at the moment... the 700x40 CX tires give a little cush, the slick center rolls fast on the road and as I proved today they are capable off road (well used it in the rear off road... as long as you aren't in loose stuff or over roots it's pretty good)... when I have some money i want to put some wood fenders on it, got some old Canti brakes that'll be on it iventualy and possibly a brooks saddle...
