Anybody local looking to purchase a couple of bikes that were bought brand new about a dozen years ago and probably never rode but once should make me an offer on them. It's a his and her's set. I can get more info and pictures if there is interest, I need them out of my garage ASAP.
Thanks,
John

Huge cycling fan here! Living 30 mins by boat from France means we go to watch the Tour de France most years.

My first love is a 2015 Cannondale Synapse which was my first proper road bike and I still own although I have upgraded to a Cervelo S5 with Di2

I completed the Etape du Tour in 2017 and 2019 where us mere mortals can complete a mountain stage for the Tour a few days before the pro's.

2017 - 202km & 3,664m (125.5 miles & 12,021ft)
2019 - 135km & 4,374m (84 miles & 14,350ft)

Unfortunately after finishing the 2019 edition I still had to ride 35km (22 miles) home but my rear derailleur cable snapped putting the bike into the hardest gear. Some Macgyvering later and I had a single speed. It took me another 2 hours to make it home and a total time on the bike was around 14 hours!

At the start of the pandemic I got a bike and started riding for the first time in 30 years. A few months ago I was having trouble sleeping so I took up dawn riding all over Toronto and out in neighboring areas. I never had any idea how beautiful and green it is here until I found myself down dark paths under tree canopies, all in the middle of the city, and getting to see the sun come up over it all.

My longest one day ride was about 250km and I’ve done multiple 100km rides.

I've owned my fat bike for one year and put 744 miles of trails on it so far. All my bikes are fun, but this one is tops.

This is a frankenbike I cobbled together for my winter commute in Chicagoland. It’s a combination of a 1992 Specialized Hardrock and a cheap retail cruiser bike. So this Hardrock is a single speed with a coaster brake and chrome fenders. I replaced the 130mm rear axle with a 175mm (24 tooth) and mounted 26x2 studded Schwalbe Marathon Winter Plus tires. My slush slayer is ready for the next polar vortex and/or snowmageddon.

First I did it on accident. Now I post the picture to see if anyone notices. You win a high five.

A literal barn find when my wife was selling real estate some years back. She asked for it as part of payment as she loved the aged look.

A BSA ladies bike. Could be from the 1950’s is my guess. Have cleaned it up and got all the axles and brakes moving again. Rejuvenated the leather on the seat and tool bag so they are supple again. Tyres have perished and gone really hard. Trying to convince my wife to get new tyres and making it useable rather than taking up space as an ornament!
