Sweet! Wish my ‘48 DX was that nice. What part of CT are you in? The picker I got the Columbia from in my last post has a couple of girls muscle bikes. A pink Lil’ Chick, and a Murray, which I forget the name. I also forgot to take pics. Bikes are in Broad Brook.

Thanks man. I’m in Cos Cob. I’m also new to the cave and having tech issues.
You're doing fine. My wife was born and raised in Cos Cob / Greenwich. A bit of a hike for the bikes I mentioned, but those are fairly common anyway. Keep an eye out for the next Dudley and Wethersfield swap meets, which will be announced here (if you aren't familiar with them already). You'll find what you need there.


This morning, I rode what will be my new winter bike (If I don't change my mind for a third time). A Fuji Sandblaster, in 20" frame. $10 from a scrapper who thought it was too good to destroy. I agree. I have the rear brake arms, the return springs are mis-matched, and I need to get another set. Aside from that, someone replaced the rear wheel with an all steel one (bummer). Again, winter bike.... Just needs fenders and a rack.

I picked up trash I saw on the short walk from the wet sand back to the street.
I would like to do that every day I'm there; I've loved the Wedge a Long time now.:)

The Pierce in the middle of the road, with the crest in the center, makes it look like a bucking horse in a western.

Took my "Yet to be Determined" Roadmaster. We did some Chicken Dancing outside a couple of bar patios. This was at Longs Peak Taphouse. (Didn't take pics at The Roost. Too busy dancing.)

Aw man! I'm going to miss Bike Night posts from you and @Balloonoob. Wish my community was better oriented in that direction. I live super close to a couple of very nice rail trails, and that's both good and bad. Seems most leisure riders stick to there. Whenever there is a fun bike event around, I always try to attend, although that often means putting the bike on the car to get there. I think the answer is for me to take it upon myself to organize something :)


So this morning's post-breakfast ride was on the '51 Columbia built Syracuse 24". I hung this up in my basement on Tues (forgetting about Westfield Wednesday), but had to pull it out this AM. Even though this thing is tiny, I had fun riding to a nearby park to snap a few pics. It definitely needs to be serviced, but the original US Royals are still holding air! I am going to enjoy the barn freshness for a while, but this thing deserves to be cleaned up.

I am fortunate to live in an area with LOTS of cyclists. And lots of bike related events. Longmont Bike Night has just finished it's 16th year!!! Have been lucky to make it to every ride the last 3 years(including Moonlight Rides which we didn't do this year:(). And rode a different bike each week the last 2 years. Bicycle Longmont is the area bike advocate and does a good job in the community.

Tomorrow we are escorting the "Official Oktoberfest Keg" from Left Hand Brewing to Roosevelt Park where the party is. It will take a better part of the afternoon to visit all the other breweries, cideries and distillers in town on our way.:) When the parade arrives at the park, the Mayor taps the keg to kick off the party and pours all of us a beer! Can't wait!!!

P.S. That sweet little Columbia would make a great Pig Bike. Just sayin'....;)

I’ve followed the Mr. Money Moustache blog almost from the beginning, and my sister (who rides) lived in Boulder for years. So I was already a bit familiar with Longmont’s legendary bike culture. Looking forward to seeing pics of the monthly rides :)

You just blew my mind with the Pig Bike suggestion (had to look it up). I also noticed there seems to be enough BB clearance to install a full sized crank.

Coincidentally I ran into a man (while riding the Columbia) who told me about his son’s Sears Spyder still hanging in his garage. So I might be back in a muscle bike anyway. Miss the Royce I sold earlier this year.
