July, 2006, marked the beginning of my first season as a roadie. In 2008, I purchased the Trek Y22 for $200 from a professor before he left the university, but I take out into the woods only occasionally. For the most part, I view myself a "Fred" since I'm more concerned about the engine than I am the weight of my bike. When it comes to cycling specific apparel, I only wear the padded shorts and the jerseys because they are more comfortable or me. I will always suggest that people give the shorts and jerseys a try, but it important to realize that they may not work for everybody.

Because I restored my current ride from an un-ride-able condition to perfectly safe and functional, I consider my self quite mechanically capable maintaining a bicycle.

Current: Univega viva Touring, year unknown.

Previous: 1976 Mirage Motobecane, I only put 13 miles on it in two rides before realizing the frame was too big because I was hyper-extending the knees.

Touring Road bike
Description:  Commuter Bike! Bought in July, 2008.

This beauty has 26 x 1.5" tires. The frame is actually a hard tail maountain from tailored to fit the role of an urban bike. The Disc brakes are great. I don't have to worry about stoping power in the rain!

Lifetime Odometer: 188.9 miles

2002 Jamis Exlporer 3.0
26" Comfort bike
Description:  Nice little bike.

This was originally the bicycle I bought for myself in Highschool to commute from home and to school.

Currently has a broken rear axel

Cyclocross Road bike
Description:  Bought used from an instructor for $200 dollars.

Needs a new chain, chainring, and tubes. I won't be able to work on it for another few weeks, so it is just sitting in my room collecting dust right now.

Got everything replaced and ready to go. This bike kicks but on down hills! I can sit on the saddle in parts where everybody on hardtails has to get of the saddle. Now, if only I was much better at offroad, then I would be leaving people behind!

26 x 2.10 Cheng Shin , rear, 10 miles

Road bike
Description:  Light blue with some rust spots (restoration in progress). I got lucky, I picked the bicycle up for 10 U.S. dollars at a thrift shop, so the year of the bicycle is unknown.

Quick release Front hub, but no quick release front breaks. Standard bolt on rear tire with quick release brakes. 1020 Crome-moly steel tubing. To the best of my knowledge, all parts are original, including the rims (update: 4-22-07, rear wheel replaced :( ).

The tires are 27 inch X 1 1/4 inch.

Will be installing flashing head lamp and flashing tail lamps for safety (no rear reflectors)( update: 7/6/2006, got em installed). Might even get a pannier rack to carry my camelback.

Update 8-23-06: I have the rear rack installed and have order aerobars.

Update 9-24-06: The Aerobars are installed, but not the inline brakes.
