Let's see your sweet ride on two wheels! No motorcycles - there are already a couple of threads for those.

2015 Cannondale Quick CX is my everyday bike for cruising around town and down our local bike path. It's been a good bike, but I'd rather ride something more colorful. This thing screams police bike. I'm currently shopping for an offroad ride, looking at used fat bikes.

I have 3 Harley-davidson velo glide ultras that I converted into ebikes. And 1 more that will be converted. Also a fun ebike cafe racer called a Cheetah by Revi bikes. Really fun. The ebikes haul ass. And 2 bikes just for peddling. A pre war 1939 Ladies Dx Schwinn. Original except the rack. Paint is in great shape for age. My peddling is on a restored by Pedal Pusher (A legendary HEP like company that is now out of business) A 1951 3 speed Red Schwinn Phantom. The harley davidson converted ebikes are incredibly fun. Last picture is my harley bicycle down at the beach at Doheny. Great Acai bowls with fantastic views.

Love my quick 4. I bought new in 2013/2014. Can’t tell you how many miles on it since new but rounding 570miles this spring/summer alone.

2018 Trek Fuel EX 9.7...I use to think bikes were expensive until I got into pinball.

I am in the market for an electric mountain bike. I have my eye on a Cannondale, does anyone have any suggestions? I need a larger bike with suspension.

Quoted from pinmister:

I'm a fan of the Cannondale brand, and my local excellent bike shop sells them, so that is a win-win for me. If I were buying an electric bike (which is a niche that is rapidly changing) I would heavily base my selection on the e-bike offerings of the store where it would be serviced. Similar to finding a mechanic you trust and asking what they recommend.

I bought this at a University surplus store for 5 bucks. Shopping for wheels/components to put it back together but not sure what wheels to get.
Too nice to scrap but unfortunately its a 61cm frame which is for a tall person.

I bought a Diamond Back because it looked the closest to the BMX bikes I rode as a kid.

I’m loving this thing.

This is a very rare Aowa prototype electric from China sent over to be ISO 90001 certified . It uses 4-12v lead acid batteries that are easy to replace . The motor is in the rear hub.

Pulley seized on my rear derailleur. This is the result. Just found an NOS Shimano XTR to replace the XT.

I got this Worksman new back in 1982. There's a little surface rust here and there, but it still rides well. When I lived at the oceanfront this was my primary mode of transportation. Tourist traffic made getting in a car an unwanted chore.

I had these 3 Schwinn stingray krates until March. The grey ghost krates were only made in 1971, with one of them the holy grail of krates. Only made in Dec 1971. These came with a disk brake. I then sold 2 really nice Schwinn phantom reproductions made in Ontario Ca. And the green 7 speed anniversary mens and the womens anniversary 7 speed.

I love my new fat bike. You don't need a suspension when you're rolling on 28x4.6" tractor tires. It's a 2015 Specialized FatBoy that came with a second set of studded tires for winter shenanigans. I'm looking forward to riding year 'round.

Giant Trance 3 mtb and Cervelo R3 road bike. I also have a nice XLab Time Trial race bike, but it is in storage right now and not convenient to photograph.

I'm 45 and still ride my 3 Dyno Pro Compe's. I know I look ridiculous, but I love these bikes. Got my first Dyno when I was in 7th grade, and still own it.

Here's my Trek Madone 4.5. I've modded this thing even more than my pinball machines: Shimano Di2 electronic shifting, crankset, and brakes, deep carbon wheels, Zipp carbon bars, carbon stem . . . and so much more.

Nothing... The picture got rotated by that damn pinside bug... You can see the ceiling lights at the bottom...

#26 12 days ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Even though it is mostly carbon fiber it is still a little on the heavy side (as am I), but I don't recall exactly how much (probably around 17 lbs - I think original weight was around 19 lbs). I mainly did it for style and aero, not weight. Also, when I was really in shape and riding seriously, I learned that either I could eat less and loose a pound or two or I could spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars and shave an ounce or two off my bike. I decided just to loose the weight.

Even still, I can hold my own on the flats, and excel at downhill with my extra mass. However, nobody has ever mistaken me as a climber.

Funny. That's actually the ground at a memorial park that's a common resting point on one of my standard routes.

#28 12 days ago

Here is what it looked like when I first bought it - hadn't even put pedals on it yet (still has the dork disk on the back wheel). It came with Shimano 105 groupset which is nice for a start, but nothing beat electronic shifting IMO.

Nice find. Got enough parts kicking around to make several bikes. Lucky to have had the Velodrome flea market swap meets nearby. Until they do those again, look at Craigslist. Wheels are expensive to ship.

Too many bikes at my place. Have my colnago c60 for Zwift - a must for lockdown time and my colnago LE for road

A bike to do shopping on, my kids bikes and wife's bike also

Thanks, had a French Motobecane in the 70's and know these are different but still a good Bike. You wouldn't happen to be an Expert and recommend what size wheels to order? 70R?
Think it uses an 8 speed cassette, Shimano?

#38 12 days ago
Quoted from phil-lee:

If the rest of the group matches the crankset (Ultegra) pictured then you should need a Shimano 9 speed cassette.

Max low tooth for that year Ultegra is 27.
11-27 would be the cassette ratio to shop for but you don’t have to get Ultegra.
Base level Shimano HG50 in a 12-25 range is relatively cheap and will work just fine.
Or if you can track down old stock Shimano 105 in 9 speed to get the 11-27.

Take a picture of the right shifter and I can confirm for you.

Does it actually shift?

Problem with shifters that old will be that the grease for the return spring hardens up and will need to be broken down with some T9 or clean streak before it will grab shift points again.

Wheel size is 700c.

Most wheels you get these days come with spacers to reduce down to 9.
New entry level pairs can be had for $75-$125.
Buying used is all over the map.
Just make sure they’re true and the hubs still feel smooth when you grab the axle.

Still, spending $5 for that specific bike is pretty good.

If you don’t want to put $200 in parts and a good tune up to get it rolling like it did in the late 90’s then, find a guy that’s 6’3”-6’5” and sell it to him for $20. lol

I’d like to pick up a restored 79 or 80 Schwinn Sting.

#40 11 days ago

A mountain bike I built from a 22" Schwinn Continental frame, sometime in the very early eighties. I believe it was one of the first in our area.

My 2009 Felt Dispatch single speed/fixie with the flip-flop hub. Usually set up for bike path and winter road riding.

My 2005 Specialized S-Works Tarmac TdF edition full Dura-Ace. Haven't ridden it in a while but usually put about 3,000 miles on it each year.

This is my bike. It squeaks and creaks and gets rode at the local skate park regularly. It takes jumps and goes into the bowl. Broke my wrist on it last year doing a catwalk. Its not much, but it gets the job done.
