I got to keep what they took out



And Chisenhallw, not a stereotype where I live. More a pain in the arse because you have to be careful driving at night because they are stupid and hop out in front of you.

Spring has finally arrived in Minneapolis! My big old five-speed made it 8 miles today, rolls along pretty well for a big girl.

That is a very classy bicycle.

Thanks! More than that, it works surprisingly well. The steel frame and somewhat wide (1 3/4) tires are compliant but it moves along pretty nicely in 3rd and 4th gear.

Steel is real, as they say. I have an older Bianchi I ride a lot, and two more modern Bianchi steel frame bikes. There is a guy on campus who has a classic Schwinn 10-speed that is just magnificent.





If I see that Schwinn I mentioned above on campus tomorrow I'll grab a shot with my phone and post it here.

My '07 Paddy the other night.





My beater winter fixed a few years ago. It now sports bullhorns and a rear rack.

Haven't ridden a MTB in a while, let alone a little downhill. Was on a school trip when got the opportunity to ride Ridgeline Trail in Dupont State Forest.

Here's that Schwinn I mentioned yesterday...


And here's another parked right next to it that's also pretty classy...


Sometimes you see some pretty cool older bicycles on campus. They tend to get sold from one student to the next and they have long lives on campus. I would like to own both of these. They are daily riders; I often see them in different parts of the engineering areas on the Cal Poly campus. When I see bikes like these I often wonder if the students who ride them know how classy they are or if they just view them as cheap older bikes.
