Maudlin Nostalgia

Sure enough, what shows up on Clist today but:


Of course, his support plates are perfectly straight:

instead of twisted at the top and the hinge, he still has the locking pin, his whitewalls : are spotless and that blue is just too precious to excite me like the old funk sorbet orange did.

He's also missing the front tire dynamo, front lamp and rear fender light.



If you were cool, you took out the front bulb and put it in back then dropped the bars and rode through the concrete drain pipes, pitch black in front red hellglow behind

there's something perfect about that front fender.

An oldie, but a keeper

Can accross this photo...my AMP Research mtn bike circa 1999, I believe this was the first production bike with disc brakes. Full XTR, Time pedals,
Control Tech Stem. Easton Carbon Seat Post as well as lots of other Carbon Fibre...very light and very cushy.

We've just returned from a ride (Thrill Me, Kill Me) on a snowy day here in Whistler...that was Snow , NOT rain!:

I took this picture on it's first outing hence the road pedals and the kickstand: .

Sears

1965 Sears, blue with Huret Alvit derailleur, some type of decent center pull brakes, Normandy hubs and cottered cranks. I had the only bike in town with drop handlebars (very COOL).

I was amazed that I could ride to the next town (12 miles) in about 30 minutes. Oh my, no toe clips, wrong side of the road, peddling on my arches and my gearing strategy was to gear down going uphill, otherwise just big and small. 108 inches if I remember correctly.

In college I had a Libertas frame all Campy Record. I learned about storm grates on Shotwell Ave in Memphis one fine afternoon. I went over the handlebars did a full flip and just skidded on my butt down the grass beside the road. Not a scratch. The bike however was totalled. That was providence, I didn't know how lucky I was.

Now, just an older trek road bike almost exactly like Volkl girls. Nothing exotic, but a good ride.

Best memories. 1965 Sears. 108 inches and an 880 mans thighs. Thats a tough combo to beat.
