    Spring took a while to arrive in Ohio this year, but yesterday I rode four bikes down to my favorite brick wall backdrop, one after another -- I'm sure I confused some of my neighbors.

    My latest find, an aluminum Kent Del Rio, now sort of BMX-ified:
    del rio 1.jpg

    Last year's "daily rider," an aluminum Fito Modena:
    fito 5 5.jpg

    An early 90's Titan mountain bike, and one of the many Nishiki Alien clones, now with drop bars:

    My first real "rat rod," a modern Schwinn Jaguar with some vintage-looking parts:

    Took my 'blue bike' out for a spin, this weekend,
    upload_2018-5-6_16-20-26.png
    around the block, past the fire station, on the bike path some. After replacing the front fork (no threaded cone bearing), now I notice the cranks and chain ring are tweaked.

    I picked up an Electra Eric Malone 7 a couple weeks back during my lunch break. Well, I've kept it at work and use it for vending machine runs...or just wake-up rides at 2am :grin:. This has been the majority of my riding the last couple weeks :thumbsup:.

    Early 90s bianchi. Frame, fork, and seatpost are original. I added the rest.

    Love those bars!! A friend just picked a pair up. Very cool.

    Took this for a swing on the weekend.

    Took the battlewagon up to the beach last night. Im way out of shape to be pedaling this pig.

    Raining again today which probably makes it 9 out of the last 10 days. :mad:
