    Well, opened another box and put my 2 speed-auto hipster bike together and took it out. It rides nice, I like it....

    Well we had QUITE the day on Friday. After all the snow, it was almost 80 out. Don't worry though, it's gonna snow Monday and Tuesday. :rolleyes:

    I was on a mission to bike to an art museum that was displaying Money, Degas, and Van Gogh. It was a 10 mile ride.

    So I found me a bunch of suckers....

    Well, we start off with a tire leak when we met up with half the group. We joked about being prepared for break downs. I don't think we knew what we were in for.

    Three miles from the gallery, after we emerged from a walk in the woods, up a ton of stone stairs, then up a long cobblestone hill, I realize when I go to sit on the Columbia that my wheel might as well be facing sideways. I lost a very important springer nut and bolt while going over all those bumps...and was about to take a trip to the dentist.
    We searched up and down the cobblestones for it for over an hour. Meanwhile, Hippie tactfully "borrows" some road sign's nuts and bolts and is about to put them on my bike, when John-boy emerges from having gone into the woods and found my parts. SUCCESS!

    then we went along our way. We had a great lunch at a deli nearby run by very kind people.

    Then we got to the gallery

    Then we biked for drinks and people watched for a while

    Goofed around some

    @Floyd

    Then on the way home we had a master link break. Once again, these guys are amazing. They found a pen spring to wrap it and get us back on the road. When that didn't work, they just started smashing it. And it got us home!
    I am SO GRATEFUL. LOVE these people. The Kool Kats are the best.

    Thirteen hours and 30 miles later...we were home and tired!



    And today we biked ten miles to my work to make up for yesterdays hookie...

    Tired and happy

    So there was a bunch of really expensive cars down at the beach this morning. My little bell fell off on my way home but I got it. I think I need a different one.
    Enjoy the ride.

    Nice bike - Linus does good, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
    Along the same lines, my buddy used the 2-sp auto hub on his Schwinn World Sport

    also, there's a really nice Pashley Clubman with an upright bar mod and other 1st rate mods for sale on RBW owners bunch for $1200 shipped (less than half new for the 18 month-old bike)

    We probably got about two inches of rain between last night & most of the day here. It did pass & the sun came out for a couple of hours. Charlie & I decided to take out the old 41 Town & Country on the rail trail. It's great having fenders.

    There are only so many parts and only so much money. So I pedaled up to the Wishing Well, hoping to find some goodies. I want fenders and I want a light and I want a rack. IMG_0722.JPG

    It was really windy on my ride home this afternoon.
    My Western Flyer is heavy duty and very solid.

    aren't fenders wonderful. I don't get people who have multiple bikes but fenders on none. I have fixed fenders on 2 of 4 bikes, and clip-on fenders on a 3rd. I only have one bike without fenders.

    Did quite a bit of shuttle work today on the Roadmaster around this very old town of mine.

    Lots of neat maritime and other kinds of history, and it's also a bit spooky too!

    Enjoy!
