This carbon beauty is like riding a dream! Five centuries in seven days would not have been possible with out this machine. It has let me range farther and faster than I ever thought possible.

Time Trial Road bike
Description:  Curb Weight; 21 lbs 14oz. My TT and Tri bike of choice. HED tri on the front, HED disc on the rear... that first time into the aero bars is a leap of faith, but once you're in them you are "wind stealthy".

Lifetime Odometer: 1,431.4 miles

Single Speed Road bike
Description:  My wife spotted it orphaned in a trash pile on the curb, and I rebuilt as a single speed. Curb Weight; 22 lbs, 5oz. This is perhaps the most satisfying bike I have to ride. It teaches me a lesson every time I ride it.

Hardtail XC Mountain bike
Description:  1/6/2010 - "Brown Thunder" has been donated. Curb Weight; 38lbs 4oz. This was the "freighter" for the family. Quite often I pulled a Nashbar single wheel trailer on errands. Empty weight on that is 14 lbs 8 oz. Commuting, unsupported touring, or hauling landscape supplies, 'ole brownie could descend like no other! Here is hoping someone gets this bike, and has the same experience...

Goodbye old friend, see you on the road.
