    ^^^ Fun shot
    Seems to be a popular type re-purpose for old or unwanted bikes...
    Might-as-well put 'em to good use!

    According to the local news, Escondido, Ca broke a 100yr. old temp record (for the date) yesterday... 94deg.
    A bit warm, but very scenic for mountain biking.

    Wow! My last ride was about 45* and windy. Looking forward to warmer temps!

    That's cool! Looks like one of our local swap meets. One of the larger shops holds a couple a year.

    Hey Ian... yup it's the got-everything Kobey's swap meet in San Diego - there are a few bike-only swap meets down here too... but, I avoid them due to the conditions already present in my garage. rolleyes1.gif

    Yeah, I did that... I figured this fellow didn't need his license plate plastered all over the WWW.

    Sweet shot Randy!
    I like that the silhouette is not total and detail is still seen on the bikes.

    Cool - nice spot to ride Nick!
    Glad you're getting some dirt time... I've been on-saddle a lot lately - we'd kill for some rain though.

    Fun shot! Glad you brought this thread back. We had some pretty good weather in January, I think rode the fat bike twice on dirt, the mtb twice and the roadie more than all of last year total. Then for February we broke the record for snowfall in town somewhere over 50". I've been gone + sick so no enjoying the snow on the fatty yet :cry Feeling much better today so hopefully I'll get out for some pics & riding soon.

    Looks like a fun trail to ride!

    I'm really liking this one, Rags. My taste generally run in a different direction but when the skills and techniques needed for a shot like this come together this well....mighty fine work.thumb.gif

    Take care,

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.
