Driving around in that t shirt in my nic,in that car can get me pulled over quite easily.Dem boys in blue took pictures at the funeral I recently attended..you missed dat funeral cham, you coulda stop by the clubhouse in your leathers.

I ketchin up to Stormy soon, just bought another bike, this one a flat black, even the spokes black, it's a fixed wheel for track.

Old days they called it a constance bike. You're pedaling constantly, can't coast like regular bikes.

 

It's a cheap one, oh oh, Zyclefix Prime...a Cali company. The one I got is aluminum, a much lighter bike, this is my play around with bike, used only on road or track, probably rent the one out in Milton being used for the games, that's a sweet track, $250 an hr.

A few people pool their $ and voila a track for an hr.

Prime MATTE BLACK

I do not have many bikes these days. In Philly we have an old converted ware house with the first floor being all storage so I could accumulate lots of stuff. We are in MD mainly and there we have a bit over 2000 sq feet and the wife crammed me into a 15X 20 room and it has to be where I keep all my stuff, guitars, bikes, ( all that essential oil you made me waste my money on) etc.

 

I only have three bikes ( 4 if you count my 2004 Santa Cruz Blur I have disassembled in a box) This year is my upgrade year. I get the mountain bikes at cost but I have to buy road bikes. I currently have a 6 year old Pinarello dogma. It is a great bike but I want to get an upgrade. The new ones are truly beautiful. I am going to be home soon ( off working)  and will try to get in on the model change sale in August and September to get a cut price on a 2015 model.

There 's one you gotta check out, it's a Specialized fixed wheel for just over 800. 2015 Specialized LANGSTER STREET

That's a sweet bike. Sure there are better but for something that's different, that sure is a good buy. I got that from Dornellas shop link while checking for one that my ...ahem...ex wants to get. I'll go by in the afternoon and see if it might work for her.

 

I changed the handle on my bike to a straight handle and can't wait to wake up to get back out there. This bike brings back memories of my chewbangs in Guyana, they were as we said, constant bikes.

Three of my younger buddies took this one for a spin and they all complained about not being able to coast, hehehehe, you gotta keep riding, I love it now. By my place there is a trail for my trail riding and the huge cemetery has roads that works well for this bike and I've been on this one since I've had it. There are some hills I stay away from I know I would be shamed into having to walk up but I have already given a few younger 'uns a run for their money.

Being a cemetery we do have to be aware we are not the only ones around so care is taken when going 500 miles an hour or thereabouts.

Couple days ago a couple of fellas went by me at a good clip. I stayed with them no matter how much they tried to pull away.

At one point I pulled up beside them and said, what's this, two guys half my age and I'm using a fixed wheel, that's when they realized it was only the one gear as I'm hearing the clicking of theirs.

This bike is only twenty pounds, I strap it onto my car rack and carry it around as though I'm married to it.

I am getting up there in age. I need lots of gears ( definitely a triple up front) so I can get help in the gruppetto on the hills and following the peloton on the flats. I cannot ride in the wind any more and definitely not amenable to single speeds. I need a bike no more than 17 lbs with nice mixture of flexibility and stiffness and which I can tweak to get a bit more upright.
