    well good for you. you just keep putting yours seats where ever you like and ride slow. fun with bikes and all that you know. that is what I'm doing. just thought I would point out that from an ergonomics point of view the low seat is very inefficient... of course with vintage bikes the cool factor is more important. same with cars. I overheard a guy with a super low 32 Ford when speaking of how his low buggy sprung car rides say "it rides as good as I want it to look".

    I appreciate the 'looking cool' aspect, even though most people who see me out riding in real life think I look a little crazy and nuts; but I also intend to keep riding for as long as I'm able, some of the guys (and gals) I go on veteran cycle club rides with are still regularly riding in their 70 's, 80 's and even their 90 's and to do that you need good knees and you're not going to be doing that with your saddle way down, and they're certainly not racing (not until they've imbibed a few beers that is).
    Anyway, enjoy your riding, whatever your reason for doing it is!
    I love to see anyone out enjoying this hobby, even the "mamils".

    I usually ride solo. Therefore, nobody has pics of me while riding. I am glad for that, I do not like pics of myself, they almost never look right. Kind of like how William Shatner never saw his own movies, I guess.

    A few of us have always rode our classics but we have the Cyclone Coasters to thank for getting the masses out, Great to see all the bikes, cabers and everyone else, as Frank said "Ridden not Hidden!, here are some of the old guys. Oh and fordmike IMG_3924.JPG IMG_1152.JPG
