The funny thing about human nature is that, even if there were no sponsors or money, you'd always have a few cats trying to be on top by any means necessary. Cheating is such a dirty word! :wink:

Went on some hill climbs today, and looked at baskets. It's a little hard to do as mountain bikes have a lot of cables which are forward of the bars. Still though I'm having one put on tomorrow.

Nice looking bike, Redcarmoose! My girl is perfect for a few days out on the road. Add my saddle bags and I can bring the kitchen sink.

Bikes n' Headphones….a perfect match for my geek alter-ego

 

AppleMark

 

My Titanium Kinesis Tripster ATR, Adventure - Tour - Race, My do-it-all bike currently set up with 35mm tyres, Mudguards and a Tubus Ti rear rack as it's winter and rather wet at the moment, can just as happily take a 25mm skinny road tyre and travel at speed for an all day ride or i can fit 40mm+ tyres and use it to explore the hill paths or head off for an extended tour. A brilliant bike, really nice to ride.

 

Set-up in summer roadie mode

 

My Titanium Cove Hummer, set-up as 1x10 drivetrain, 140mm Fox Talas forks and KS Lev Dropper post, another brilliant bike and sublime to throw down a hill or through a tight n' twisty trail.

 

AppleMark

My Fungrel (F-kin Ugly moNGREL) knocking about town bike, built up using my Marin Indian Fire Trail mtb frame from 1994 and rigid carbon/Ti forks, single speed of course and one single front disc for stopping duties, it's not pretty but it's very light and fun to ride.

 

AppleMark

My Salsa Juan Solo Singlespeed mtb, another brilliant bike, very light and nimble but rim brakes so it only gets used for dry weather use, (which is usually 3 days a year :wink_face:).

 

Got a few others kicking about but they're my main runarounds.

WOW! Beautiful collection of cycles, musicmonkey. Love to have a fixed or single speed, but at 6300 feet in elevation, I appreciate a few gears to get me around under a load of groceries. Yeah, I'm a wimp.....

 

My next bike, I hope, will be one of these:

Be nice to be able to peddle my dogs around town.

Cheers Bluenote1553, once your muscles get used to it an SS is alright for the hills as long as they are short n' sweet and you can power up them before your lungs try and climb out of your chest - but i admit now that i've crept out of my 30's (gulp!) a few gears on a bike makes sense.

 

I like the matching accessories that come with the cargo bike above, are they an optional extra or do they both come as standard?:bigsmile_face:

Couple of my friends have cargo bikes. I'd rather not go that route, but carrying groceries tends to alter ones perceptions, desires. Still need to try out my new and bigger backpack, a missionworkshop Fitzroy.

:popcorn:

That pack looks like a good pick!

We (more precisely our ex countrymen from just a bit more south ) have a great saying answering your :bigsmile_face: question :
