It hasn't been great here either. That's why I just picked up this......

Very nice, I would suggest getting some click-in pedals with shoes, or at least some cages. Click-in pedals are way better though for road bikes, gives you so much more power, especially up hills. I can't stand riding bikes anymore that don't at least have cages.

Those are Shimano 105 pedals....ie SPD-SL. I've got my regular SPDs on it for the moment though cause I don't feel like buying new shoes right now. Cages are far hipsters.

Oh lol, I couldn't see them since they blend in with the crank. A lot of times new bikes don't come with pedals, so I figured you just hadn't gotten any yet

I actually do like cages for mountain biking, just because going down technical terrain and having your feet locked in sketches me out (not to mention how many times I've come to a stop, couldn't get my foot out, and just fell over like a moron).

SPDs are piece of cake. After two week its automatic,esp if you turn the tension all the way down. Last year I tried to keep up with Rob on his full sus barreling downhill at 30mph on my full rigid, just before hitting a tree I hopped off the bike and landed on my feet in a rocky drainage 30 feet away. Good thing he moved....

Ahhh...cycling is a passion for me. Many many bikes in the stable....here's a few.







Also have a CX bike, a fixed gear and a tandem but no good photos of them currently. Before my second child and current job I actually rode more miles in a year than I drove...but now that I have a 35 mile (each way) commute and a 2 yr old there is much less time for riding.

Nice bikes! @ spinning your tires to the exact same spot for the photos.

Ahh...but did you also notice that the cranks are also aligned with the chain stays and they are in the highest gear? I'm on a cycling forum and in the road cycling area it is widely accepted that this is in fact the only acceptable way to photograph your bike.

Note the MTB hasn't been photographed using the same rules.

I'm buying a DK Cygnus 24" cruiser on Wednesday. I'm just gonna use it for dirt jumping and the occasional across town ride.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
