Got home from work, adjusted the crank on the 27 Hawthorne. Also, after 8 days of waiting, a set of triple trap pedals for the 51 Schwinn arrived. Mind you, these aren't the ones I originally ordered, no, those were lost in transit and all they had left was blue. I wish I had them on the bike last night, wet pedal, foot slipage and somehow strained my meniscus in my right knee. Just found out riding isn't really conducive to healing quickly.
With everything going on Ive had some extra time for playing with VWs but no bike rides.So yesterday I grabbed my number one and pedaled out my driveway..
Down the hill to Greenway trail, rode it about 4 miles to the end.
Ok from here thought maybe I should ride up to Beverly Blvd and jump on the San Gabriel Bike Path. Take a ride down to the Bellflower Skate park see whats going on...
LOL its full of dirt!
From here I continued riding south to Cerritos
Stopped at the park to check out the map............
Still going, I made it to the split in the riverbed. Ive seen it posted here in this thread. This is my first time getting this far.
Crossed the bridge now heading for Seal Beach...and made it!
Stopped by the market to grab a drink.
Ballast Point in the distance.
Got to cruise around Seal Beach, was great to see people out doing beach stuff again. A beautiful day, just lovely..This is the end of the bike path with my bike pointing in the direction of home..Whittier. I made it back!..About a 6 1/2 hour loop, a total of 57 miles. 1982 Schwinn Sidewinder 5 speed.
I have been working on this bike for 2 days, to get it ready to move in with the other "House" bikes.
It rides awesome, like a Schwinn.
1954 Wasp; New for '54 Opal Green.
End of the painted S-2s with ND 1" pitch drive.
Still rid-able, original USA Schwinn Typhoon Cords.
Thanks again to Marty @cyclingday for letting go of one, and @GTs58 for the clarification on serial # year, on the old F/S post 02/2016
With the Covid-19 virus, and not many visitors I have let things slide for too long. Wen I woke up this morning I had three bikes stacked up in the hallway just past my front door and started to feel a bit overwhelmed as I tried to stumble past them each day..
Today I decided to re-organize and hang them all back up in the basement. As I was cleaning house I found a bike stacked behind a few others that I completely forgot I still had.
I did not clean as much as I hoped. around 1:00 a got distracted and went fishing.
Sorry for yet another mountain bike post, but this one is pretty cool. Its a K2 with custom built Red Mavic 517 wheels, Time pedals, and a well worn set of tires that used to be my favorite mountain bike race tires of all time, (Specialized 26 x 1.90 Team Dirt Masters).
This is the only wheelset I have ever payed to have custom built for me, and when I received them from a order in Irving California back around 2000 I was very disappointed. After I got them in the mail instead of returning them, I learned how to tune them up myself.
Once I found out that I still had it, and realized that I at some point moved a few parts over to it. I just had to take it out for a mid evening adventure.
I really liked the way this bike fit and handled. Its my lightest mountain bike, and feels fast.
Rode the Basin trail in Franconia Notch today. Got blasted with a quick heavy shower. Dried off quickly, as I was able to take cover under a bridge. After the shower turned out to be a beautiful day for a ride.
The mist coming off the river.
The Basin,nice and cool here.
One of the many flumes carved in the granite.
Mount Lafayette and Mount Liberty.
Echo lake. Stay healthy,have fun and enjoy the ride.
