    On top with the door open? You can do it, as long as you don't mind getting blasting medium in every orifice on your body. :D

    Two wheel drive Schwinn

    I spotted this rig at the flea market this morning, it's a Schwinn Sierra outfitted with a 2wd system and a 2 wheel resistance training stand.

    Recent yard sale finds - low-end BMX

    This Rampar is probably from the late 70's. Sugino crank is stamped "Sugino 178," which might suggest the date... Lester alloy mags are really heavy, like a flywheel - I put the bike on the stand and started the front wheel spinning, and noticed that it was still going several minutes later...

    Hello from South Florida

    Hi there, I've been lurking on the forum for several months and admiring your cool bikes, and I wanted to get in on the action. I recently moved to a bike-friendly neighborhood in Broward County Florida, so I've pulled the bikes out of storage and started wrenching & riding. My stable...
