    Had to show my latest addition - a Parlee Z5 with SRAM Force groupset. I finally feel my body is healed enough (knees and shoulder) to do this bike justice. Now I have to live up to it on group rides! First ride was this morning before breakfast and the rains came: 27-mile hilly course. Water bottles are empty and so is my tank, but a huge smile on my face!

    Hand built bikes are works of art and they have soul...something that is lacking in the bikes that are churned out en masse by factories in China and Taiwan. I had the Pistola built to my specs and it was a fun thing to do. In your circle of friends you are probably the go to guy when a mechanical issue arises. :) I can just see you sitting in your garage with soft music playing as you work on your bike.

    Historian, that is the Gen I Fargo and I was pretty lucky to snatch one up before they became so popular. I started and ended my post-TKA mileage record on the Fargo with the last ride being 45 miles or so to meet my goal. I take it out on the long, lonely stretches of gravel road that are so prevalent in the farming community. Have you thought about getting a Salsa Vaya~the road version of the Fargo?

    Correct about building and doing repairs or testing new ideas but wrong about music, have 8 speakers plus extension speakers in back yard and i play techno, garage,and dance have good selection of wigan pier love that all dj and when riding yello or kraftwerk gets lots of funny looks because play loud and no earphones on bike.Wife and brothers and sisters think i am cracked and not allowed to play in caravan.I rode from doncaster to brighton 2 years ago 268 miles with son in law his only complaint was my choice of music aiming to try same ride next year when knee okay.

    No more off-road riding for me. So...
    Out with the old: Gary Fisher.jpg

    In with new: Giant.jpg

    We'll post the Gary Fisher for sale before the week-end. I really hadn't been off-road in quite awhile before the surgery. The new bike is lighter and easier for me to get into the car. The hubster found a water bottle cage that matches the trim paint. Just need a coordinating water bottle and gloves and I'll be set! I'm also just not ready to get on my road bike yet. A city bike feels more stable and for now, I like that.
