    Favorite of all rides I've ever had...Salsa Fargo...

    I'm currently running it tubeless with big apple tires. It's a plush road rider setup this way!! Rolls really nice!!

    The pic is from the day I picked it up. Nearest dealer was about 100 miles away so I got a one way train ticket....didn't make it all the way back home....had an obligation pop up that required a "wife rescue" about 1/2 way....

    She now has a Fargo for being so supportive of my addiction :)

    ...and completely embraces the addiction also.....

    My only transporation is a bicycle...or Okie_Chick.

    80's era Trek 520 and a backup Trek 520 frame that is not much of a backup until it gets built up.

    Call me old school. My road bike is a 1984 Bridgestone Sirius. Mostly stock, it still flies like it has wings. :D

    One Gary Fisher MTB and two lesser mountain bikes. One of them is at the office for jaunts around downtown and the other is set up as a grocery getter with litter bucket paniers as shown in the OP.

    I'm rolling an 04 DK General Lee full cromo right now. No pics... :(
    I love that bike.
    My kids roll vintage gt's, and my little one has an 85 Db mini viper.
    My son raced for awhile on a DK dart a few years ago, but he is not interested in it anymore.

    My last bike was a Motobecane GT, bright yellow. Hubby won't let me ride a bike out of fear I'll fall and hurt my head again.

    Old Wal-Mart special. I love to ride, but my town is not bike friendly. I would love to ride to work, but narrow roads and crazy traffic keep me in my truck:(

    I'm unable to drive for a while due to medical issues, currently on a 15 dollar thrift store multiple speed mountain type bike, in need of some TLC. Mulling it over whether to upgrade or to take it into the bike shop for a fitting and overhaul.

    If you're liking the fit do some component upgrades....a frame that fits well and your comfy with is worth the investment IMHO if you haven't found any other that fits better...

    Focus Blackhills 2011 - very reliable. Can't wait for the weather to warm up a bit to commute again.

    I traded my Giant mountain bike for a used women's bicycle last year. To be honest I've always hated cycling, and only do it when I'm going out for drinks or when the weather is too bad to ride my roller-blades. I guess that's what happens when you're forced to cycle 10mls to school and back every day as a kid, or perhaps I'm just lazy, idk. I'll take a motorized two wheeler over a pedal bike any-day anyways.

    Finally got to a computer that I can load photos from.

    I ride both these bikes year round. The Giant gets out on nicer days or when my travel requires that I'm walking with it on my backpack for long distances. The Cannondale has been nice, but I'd really like to upgrade this year.
    The Klein Mantra was rode for 10+ years before giving it to my brother and buying the Cannondale. It was funny how many comments that bike got.
    The Giant has provided the most "Smiles per mile" for me. One of the best purchases I've made.

    That cannondale looks bada$$. How does it perform? I am intrigued by the fork. Does the weight ratio on either sides got affected? Does it pull to one side? The design is wicked but I'd really have second thoughts on using a fork like that.

    I put new shoes on the old concord bike today . It is a wonder the old ones hadn't fell apart they were so dry rotted. Since I have been riding this time, I have been riding my steamroller single speed the most . The old concord is going to be my bad weather single speed. Kenda makes a inexpensive 27" gum wall knobby tire so that is what I put on it . I like the looks of the gumwalls
