Bear, don’t do it, 3 spd’s are awesome! Probably just sticking pawls, they almost never actually break.

Awesome photos guys! Erok: what is the orange & white thing on your handlebars?

@mm: I’m not sure the vintage or make of that car in my photo – it must’ve belonged to the neighbors. Reminds me of some 60s-era Renaults I rode in in Macedonia. Maybe its a VW Notchback?

Not as young as the previous pictures. I think I was around 16. Sweet air on a GT bmx!

WHERE IS YOUR HELMET YOUNG MAN?!!

just kidding. These pictures are cool. I was just at my grandma’s house last night looking through old pics. They were so disorganized that I got sick of looking at them. I didn’t come across any of me on a bike, but I will look at my parents’ house next weekend.

Sloaps wins. I just don’t see how anyone could possibly trump that one.

i don’t recall the nightrider making noise, but i’m sure i blew up lots of stuff and saved lots of civilizations riding that bike.

i’m digging edmonds’ pompadour confidence and onesie comfort.

Based on my picture that I found, above, I will have apparently been riding a pedal bike for half a century, as of Christmas ‘012. That is messed up, that’s 1/5 of the age of the U.S.

Anyway it seems like I should set some notable goal for ’12. Bike to work 50 days in ’12? An effort but do-able. Ride 5,000 miles in ’12? Tougher. 50 mi/week in ’12? Something? 2 days to decide.

@edmonds, how about riding a bike 50 minutes a day? (that’s 5 hours 50 minutes per week)? You could also use an indoor trainer with this goal.

Ok, another option to think about.

I was 15 when we got the wheel. I’ll dig around and see what I can come up with.

sorry to do this to you jane, but this one was just too good not to share. for those that missed the membership meeting, here’s an incredible pic of jane and why she became a bike advocate – fist in the air and all!
