Began riding road bikes in the mid 80's in the Palo Alto foothills on a Tsubaki road bike. It was just for working out to enhance my motorcycle racing. 20 something years later, I wiped the dust off, tuned it up and tried to start riding again. This bike is my 2nd longest relationship besides my wife who was my highschool sweetheart. Nice thing about the Tsubaki, it lets me ride other bikes like my Santa Cruz Blur, Orbea Opal, Specialized Langster New York edition, and just recently, an Orbea Orca in Red. Great thing about my wife, she let me buy them and ride them too! :D

Road bike
Description:  My first adult road bike. A friend came back from a stint in Japan with this bike. After a couple of months he asked if I wanted it. I was racing motorcycles at the time so said sure I can use it to work out on. This was 1983, it's a Tsubaki and I especially liked it because no one had ever heard of this brand and I have had ol blue since. I upgraded the brakes and cranks to Shimano EX600 and put neon orange tape with white outter cables, white bottle cage and white Look pedals. Just how ol Blue sits to this day. Used to have matching Gentleman Superman rims, but I used to ride this bike anywhere...really o.0

Road bike
Description:  This is a LaPierre Youth 5 speed road bike. It has 500A tyres (approximately 20"). I had a Gitane 3sp as a youth that was similar. Found the bike on Craigslist so I bought it on a whim and did some freshening up with new bar tape, tyres and some elbow grease. It was a fun project and gets many smiles when I take it to Alameda Bicycle my local bike shop that I call home :D
