Road bike
Description:  Nicknamed the "The Limo" it is Gwen's and my first tandem. Bought it used from a friend who wasn't going to use it anymore.
Our goal for this bike is to get out and have fun together while hopefully inspiring others to get on their bike too.

Lifetime Odometer: 24.7 miles

Electric bike
Description:  This is a fun and interesting addition to my two-wheeled family. Used mainly for commuting to work and for as many errands in my 3 mile radius as possible. This bike will go a long way to reducing my carbon footprint (and extending the life of my car). Not for exercise (I get plenty of that) rather an alternative to using my car. Sort of a sweat-free/pollution-free/convertible option to my commute to work.

You know modifications are on the way! ;-)

Lifetime Odometer: 285.6 miles

Hardtail XC Mountain bike
Description:  I loved my Montague MX (previous folding bike) so much but it was defintely the wrong size.
The wheels and stem were switched over but mostly it is stock.

Lifetime Odometer: 423.2 miles

Road bike
Description:  I rescued it from a certain death. After a little bit of cleanup it ran fine. Did need a new battery but now I'm wondering what do with it as I didn't need a second one.

Lifetime Odometer: 0.0 miles

Hardtail XC Mountain bike
Description:  Just the frame for now until I figure out how to build it up. It may be my wife's new mtn bike if it is the right size.

Lifetime Odometer: 0.0 miles

Hardtail XC Mountain bike
Description:  Out with the old and in with the new (and stronger, and lighter, and better equipped, and...you get the idea).
Fox front fork, BB7 disc brakes, Mavic rims, and LX and XT components

Lifetime Odometer: 17.2 miles

Touring Road bike
Description:  Given to me by a friend of mine. Upgrading it slowly into a touring bike. New picture shows it now has a Honey top Brooks B17 saddle and matching handlebar tape, a rear rack and panniers. If I still wish to continue than it will get a 9 speed Ultegra drivetrain and a fresh powdercoat.

Lifetime Odometer: 244.9 miles

click to enlarge 1987 Cannondale 3.0
Road bike
Description:  On the way out to pasture I wanted one more ride with "Old School" I chose the LiveStrong Challenge 09 ride and desided to "pink" my ride. After winning the pink tires from Jenni Laurita's blog contest it received too many compliments to retire it now. Welcome back Old School!

It will also be my weapon of choice for the Tour de Pink (ride against breast cancer).

Cancer has a new foe!

Lifetime Odometer: 0.0 miles

It's gives Steel bikes a great name.

Lifetime Odometer: 15,058.0 miles

Road bike
Description:  This one came to me as a Christmas gift to restore.
Everything on the bike is original equipment but due to the neglect I won't be keeping it that way.
In the near future it will get:
New paint, rims, handlebar tape, saddle, fenders, pedals and cables. Everything else will be refurbished if possible.
Once complete this will be my new touring bike.

Lifetime Odometer: 0.0 miles
No planned events for 2024
