    aasoverteakettle,
    Good eyes since you were able to identify my bike. Love riding my Ragley Blue Pig.

    Am based here in Los Angeles, California.

    What about you?

    I'm in Vermont. Hammering snow! My blue pig is in my basement in the process of winter upgrades; new tires, pedals, chain, and a new granny cog. I am one of a handful who ride hard tail around here. Steel is real! Good on you! I don't really take many photos, but this is a shot from a video last year. just these words are getting me more pumped to ride. [​IMG]

    Here's one of my favorite shots from a tour 2 years ago. I was planning to post my touring and mountain bike carry this summer. Looks like we have a place to do so. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's bicycle carry this summer.

    It is a Cross Check with S&S Couplers so that it will knock down for carry on Airlines or easier travel by car.

    I ride a Minnesota Framed 2.0 Fat bike. It is black & green, and I customized it with some green cables, green Ti. skewers, green water bottle holder & green bike computer. I bought a Fat bike because they are meanto be ridden all year long.

    The Ruby Bike, named after my daughter. Mama usually stays home with her on Monday, but she's traveling, so I'm home and we're heading out for a ride. Hope you all have a chance to enjoy spring today! Even if you don't have the day off work.

    This is the access fire road to some of the best riding in VT. Sucks getting up and in, but so worth it. And super fun to rip down to exit the trails. They're doing some work here before the trails open, and we went to check it out. "Big trucks!"

    Pretty much have mine set up:

    https://www.pedalroom.com/bike/montague-swissbike-x50-blacked-out-30784

    Still working on the toolkit angle (not so much for the bike, as how much I can manage to fit into the handlebar bag which I use for EDC --- waiting on a Gripsher to arrive, and to order a Minich Tool Pen Mini to evaluate what else I need for that / what else can fit), and the last few things for the bike:

    - folding pedals --- finally broke down and ordered MKS FD-7 Folding Pedals - 9/16", Black --- should arrive today or tomorrow
    - a set of hand-laced wheels and Serfas Survivor Drifter Tires
    - saddle --- still debating which I want to get (have a shopping list of 7, probably going to start out by trying the Fabric Scoop Elite Saddle SHALLOW BLACK, then if that doesn't work out, Ergon SMR3 or Brooks Cambium (suggestions on which to try first would be welcome --- want understated black, reasonably narrow but comfortable, and good looking)
    - debating on replacing the Topeak Ninja C chain tool w/ Mineral Barstow
    - want to get a Cateye integrated reflector/light (and will move my Cygolite rear up to the saddle bag)
    - and replace the rear rack and fender w/ a Montague Rackstand
