Talk about all things Rat Rod Bikes.
Randy... you never cease to amaze me!
You think your video's are poorly filmed and edited? you would be wrong. thats good stuff... I especially liked the car wash segment.
Thanks Jerry, Mitch.
This morning we went for a 22 mile ride to the Ninnescah river and back. My Wife riding her new bike. Although she really likes her Specialized MTB she was looking for something a little more suited to our type of riding which anymore is gravel and paved rails-to-trails and paths. We compared many bikes but when you find one in your favorite color, nothing else matters.

My wife and me really enjoy your videos and pics.
The river route looks like a nice ride.
Congrats to your wife on her new bike. It looks like it rides smooth...
Know about the color thing with my wife too
Thanks for posting
Steve thanks glad you both enjoy them. Wife seems to really like the new bike. Now we just need to get it set up with a rack and additional water bottle cage. It only has bosses for 1 cage. Also maybe a little wider tire for trails. We're really hi-tech now. Our first bike with carbon fiber although just the fork.
Back on the bikes again today. What was planned to just be a ride to go eat at Noodles turned in to a 31 mile loop around part of the city. Got a break today with the temp. Was under 100. 97 during our ride.
For the locals who might be interested... First time we dd a loop like this. Here's the route http://goo.gl/maps/jihL
Randy, I was planning on making almost that same loop yesterday, was getting loaded up and the phone rang.... had to go help my Son with his house. When I got done I didn't have enough time to make a big ride so I rode the local 7 mile loop.
thanks for the map.... that is almost exactly like I was planning.
How about that. It's a nice ride. The sidewalk along Central is standard & narrow but we didn't encounter anyone else. Might be a better way to do this. It wasn't planned we were just winging it.
Yes she did. It was the main reason for getting the new bike.
Perfect bike for the day!
My wife and kids rode to the beach yesterday 102 degrees!
I'm sure your ride wasn't much cooler
As always love the pics and updates.

Thanks Skip. I think we topped out at 102 yesterday. We rode pretty early though. Wish we had a beach to ride to.
Rode 2 different times today. One ride in the city, the other in the country for a total of 50 miles. City ride I rode a ratrod, country I rode my hybrid. The afternoon ride was miserable due to the heat. More photos and the stories on today's rides here.

+1 Got a son of a friend attending Friends Univ. there and he loves the town. He's getting a degree in zoo-keeping (or something in that area) and he does a lot of interning at the local zoo and he's impressed.

That's great. All of the above.
I've always said it's a great place to live but I wouldn't want to visit here. I always think about moving to the mountains, forests or an ocean but you know, the grass is always greener. One of the pluses here is it's centrally located and all of the aforementioned are just a days drive away. People do visit from these other places and are in awe of our open spaces. There is neat stuff here. It's just not obvious like a mountain or ocean.
Thought this was neat... 3 of us RRBers live in a suburb of Wichita. Saturday night the wife and I were riding back home after having dinner at my parents and we crossed paths with the other 2 RRBers at the same time. They were each out riding separately for different reasons. What are the odds of that?
