I totally missed this post until the other day. I was glad I didn't have a mouthful of coffee when I read it.I especially like the one whee you Got Jimmy Carter to ride it ...
Chad, did you see my response to the post before? "A younger Jimmy Carter, I might add!" He is a great man, and just beat cancer at age 90, so I'll take the resemblance anytime! Here is a side-by-side comparison. I have about 4 inches on him and probably 40 lbs, but we do share the "presidential chin" and a similar hairline.....I totally missed this post until the other day. I was glad I didn't have a mouthful of coffee when I read it.
There is a little resemblance. I googled Jimmy Carter on bicycle and found this. Check him out. Looks like he's an avid cyclist. Sweet looking bike he's got too.
Oh for sure and I'm guessing Carter didn't build his. Next to the pic it said it's a Rivendell. I looked them up and they're 2500 to 3k bicycles. Wasn't expecting to see him on such a fancy mount....oh, and my bike's cooler.
Looking forward to BO 11 myself. I'd love to build a klunker but totally lose interest in the bike stuff during the winter. I have a 2001 Schwinn Panther I want to do a more "adult" bike with this year.As one build off ends, another is waiting in the wings.....one frame for the BO - 11 this summer, and one for the MBBO #5 next fall! Here's to a very Happy New Year one and all!
