Road bike
Description:  My magic carpet ride, a "Velo-Orange Randonneur" bike. This is the nicest riding bike that I ever owned. I am a true believer that "Steel is Real." And the neat thing about this bike is it's fast too! Maybe not as fast as a racing road bike, but still pretty darn close to it and also very comfortable to add to the list of good things about this bike. For the money this is a hard bike to beat. I'm a happy camper. :-)

Folding bike
Description:  Finally, I own one! After some tweeking this bike sure has a nice ride. I bought this bike to replace my Trek 420 equipped with the S&S coupling which has a bent frame after I crashed it a while ago in Los Angeles. I feel that my Pocket Rocket will be the perfect replacement and I am looking forward to many years of bike rides in my travels!

Road bike
Description:  A "wanna be" Litespeed, Alum frame, light, climbs very well and it is fast too! This is my main ride and I use it for training, racing "crits", and long fast club rides. After riding it for more than 8 years, I am still very impressed with it. This is one heck of a bike.

Road bike
Description:  A second hand frame that I picked up dirt cheap at T-town's flea market in 1997. Even though the frame is for mountain biking, I built it up to be a road bike in which I use it as an all-rounder, mainly as a commuter and I have done a few multi-day tours on it too.

Road bike
Description:  My first real road bike. I bought it at "The Cosmic Wheels" bike shop when it used to be located at Bogota NJ. They were honoring the "Great Trek Fest" sales and this bike really opened up the cycling world for me. It's an entry level road bike that has a solid and light frame. As time went by, I upgraded all of the components as they got worn. It climbs very well, sprints nicely and it is great for long fast rides.

Road bike
Description:  I've always wanted a frame made in Italy and this turned out to be a lucky catch! Since it's made out of Columbus SLX tubing the bike has a real nice and forgiving ride. Because of it's slightly steeper angles it spins extremely well and allows me to accelerate nicely when sprinting. I bought the frame at T-town's flea market in 2001, "NOS" built in 1989. Its first ride was around May 2002.

Road bike
Description:  The frame was made in 1989 but I bought it "NOS" in 1993. I had the S&S couplings retro-fitted in 1996 and this bike has traveled all over the USA with me. This is a nice riding bike and I have used it to ride tours, quick club rides and for a couple of years, I used it for commuting to work. To this day I still enjoy riding this bike.
