    What have you been riding lately?

    Yikes, no thanks. I like a little cushion on my bikes.

    What have you been riding lately?

    Stopped for a coffee on my morning ride. No snow tires, but maybe I need some mud tires.

    It's Just A Bike

    I've ridden all my life and I'm now 57, and it has never been "just a bike". The freedom and joy riding gives me has made the bike greater than a simple wheeled mechanical transportation machine. This is a great initiative and I hope for its success.

    What have you been riding lately?

    As a fellow retiree, I too enjoy the ability to ride everyday and get the miles in. Although, I'm glad that there's no need for studded and snow tires here in eastern North Carolina.

    Interesting free bike.

    Looks like a good and cheaper start for a Rivendell clone

    Gravel bikes

    It's a world of difference between this and my SS Ogre. Needless to say, I'm not running the same gear ratio.

    Gravel bikes

    I spent more than I should have and put a White Industries eccentric rear hub on it. Ridiculously smooth and quiet making this light, for me, bike (23lbs as it sits) a dream to ride.

    Studebaker Pedal Car

    This build is so much more in every way then what I do with bikes; I think I need a different word for my "builds".

    Gravel bikes

    Conversion is complete, upright and singlespeed. I'll be riding this bike a lot more now; gravel and as a daily rider, urban assault bike.
