OK ,there have been multiple reference to bike over the last year but only a few random photos ! Here is the bicycle picture thread .

A photo of your daily or weekly ride please plus comment about how good or bad it is !:D

Here's mine to start .

An Apollo Himalaya ,20 plus years old , heavy and unfortunately indestrucible .I've done thousands of km on her and she just won't break , she won't even run a bearing ....so no excuse to buy something new and pretty ! 18 speed and slicks ,she suits my very hilly countryside .I do like her ..but I do get tempted !:D

No pic, but a Raliegh 12 speed riddern round europe 25 years ago, and a 21 speed mountain bike (probably Chinese) picked up on a council clean up 5 years ago. Heavy, tough, seemingly indestructible too. Why spend good money?

Hi Jeff , mine is probably the same quality as an $800 mountain bike today , just a lot heavier,all steel .I bought secondhand from a mate and can't rememeber what I paid .

I picked up another quite good bike , Chinese but about $500 new in a throw out recently .Number three daughter rides it to work after a tune up at the bike shop .

( I am astounded at the stuff people throw out , the LCD screen in front of me as I type , a perfectly good gas hotwater system ,said bike ,2x 12v battery drills, one Makita , one DeWalt .Amazing and a little sad ! )

I bought a new Raleigh ten speed in 1966 for $60 I earned from caddying at the local golf club and rode it from Massachusetts to Maine.

The club doesn't allow carts to this day and my nephew wants to earn money for a similar purchase. I don't want to know how much he'll have to raise.

Yup! in about 15 seconds, small enough to pack in a small package not much larger than the wheels. I purchased a little gas motor for one, never installed it, and gave it to Mark (Tylerdurden) who put it on his son's bike.......I didn't want gas on the boat.

I ride this anywhere there is a paved road. It will fly, 30 speeds, I use 6/7 but I haven't rode up any mountains yet. Carbon, lite, rides good but not as good as steel.

They don't make them like that anymore...too expensive. They passed the $600 mark and quite as most folks wouldn't pay that for them, so they make them in aluminum, which corrodes when scratched.....the last ones that I saw advertised were about $700 before they were taken off the market....I bought them for my boat.

Chuck; There are recumbants that have two wheels at the front (Greenspeed), gives you a lot more braking power.

Peter; that Apollo is at least 20 years old, I bought a similar one new 15 years ago, much more sophisticated, had 'V' brakes :). I'd still have it too if it weren't for thieves. Oh, relevant to another thread, the lighter the rider, the easier the life of the components......I had to replace a few bits on mine.

Not the Apollo, it was a sled. I did bend rear axles on it and had to get a better rear hub. A good honest bike.

ljb5; leaving the splash guard thingie over the rear cassette is a matter of personal choice......let's be freedom positive, not freedom negative.

I weigh 68 kilos Peter, a tribute to hard work! The bike frame says "Spectrum", A cheapie I reckon, but as long as it doesnt disintegrate under me it'll do! That has happened, as teenagers a mate and I built a tandem from old bike bits from the tip. It fell apart on a steep hill at about 40 mph and wiped us all over the road. There's still a scar or two. I've never quite trusted my welding since.

given the consequences of a maladjusted derailleur with only five spoke heads after the big cog, I'd leave it on. Can't tell from this side but it's possible the shop changed the cassette to a larger one and that's why that guard is there. Pretty sure the bikes come with a small clear one. Those are light frames, it weighs almost half what my CC frame weighs.

My two bikes that have been with me 18-25 yrs until I got too fat to ride on the drops are a 56cm Bottechia road bike and Litton 26" wheeled touring road bike. Then two yrs ago I got a Surly LHT and CrossCheck with the bars 1" below the seat height instead of 3".
After that I changed the stem on the Litton to better fit my fat. Forgot how much I'd grown after I visited my daughter and got on my old mtn bike I gave her sweetheart.

Oh yea, a Kona Ute utility bike but I'm going to sell it as it's really not that great handling even though I can carry almost a grocery carts worth of stuff on it.

#1) RANS V Rex short wheelbase, above seat steering, recumbent. Chrome Molly frame: http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/pp346/killick/Bents/DPSCamera_0029.jpg?t=1262415509

#2) EcoCycle Voyageur tadpole recumbent trike. This too has a CroMo frame. Am presently in the process of upgrading the rear hub to a SRAM Dual Drive and adding a fairing:

Earl ,which do you prefer and why ?Steering ...under or over ?

I've riden the Greenspeed version of your Voyageur , just a couple of km , a test ride and while I liked it I was a bit worried by the width ,also the steering felt EXTREMELY direct .

01-02-2010, 02:17 AM
Peter, I like the over seat steering for the two wheeler but have never tried a two wheel with under seat. The trike is a blast, very similar to a first generation Greenspeed. The steering is quite precise but you quickly learn to adjust the input. A light touch works well. I find the width to be an advantage on the road. Cars and trucks seem to give me a wider berth when passing than when I am on two wheels. It can be unnerving cycling next to the wheels on a tandem truck though.

The reason I ask about the underseat steering is that I suffer "tingles "in my hands after 30 minutes or so these day ...I think it is my handle bar position bending my wrists at the wrong angle .I didn't used to happen ,a sign of age perhaps, but the under seat position looks very relaxed ...like the Bentech in the link above .The trouble is I livein very hilly country and really use the bars to pull on !:confused:

Thanks for the link Peter,I have it saved. Motorists around here are generally polite and accepting of cyclists. You do have to stay on your toes none the less and I try and pull onto the shoulder for the trucks.I may be dumb but I ain't stupid :D.

Peter, are you speaking of hands getting tingly on the mtn bike with the straight bars? Get some bar ends so you can rest your hands in a normal "thumbs up" position instead of forearm rotated in position. If that extends your torso too far forward you might get a stem with 1" less reach then put bar ends on.

Peter,we have a lot of short but steep hills here and they take a different technique on the bents. I find you have to gear down and spin your way up. No stand up and stomp available.I am definitely slower climbing hills on the bents compared to a regular bike but I am not in prime condition and don't ride often enough these days to perfect my technique.Practice makes perfect in hill climbing on bents.

When I was 14 or so I knew a 97 year old man named Moses Williams, Mos for short. He was born about 1864, bicycles in Aus were called 'push bikes' because an old bike frame with no tyres or even seat sometimes could carry enough water and supplies for the long dry stages men walked looking for work. They pushed them. He saw the 1890's depression in his 30's as a railway ganger, the 1930's depression in his late 60's, but was tough enough still to ride half way across Aus. on an old fixed wheel bike looking for work.
Nothing yuppie about that purri.

Here is the bike I rode to work almost 150 days last year. It is a 1976 Raleigh Super Course frame that I bought as part of a complete used bike while in college over 25 years ago. Reynolds 531 main tubes and steel stays. I switched over to flat bars for commuting, and also added the fenders, and a sealed bottom bracket. The front chain rings are 48 and 38 teeth, which provides a good range for riding around town with the 13-28 tooth rear freewheel. I also used to tow a bike trailer, but the kids have outgrown that.

I like my knobbies just fine. There's plenty of paved bike paths in this area that were recycled (pun intended) from abandoned railroad lines. But, also lots of opportunity to get off the paving. At 60 psi those knobbies do sing.

There is a long steep hill that I used to chuff over on my way to work.Rolling back down in the afternoon ,not pedalling,the knobbies roll to 45 km /hr .City Slicks roll to 75 km/hr .

What I actually ride is an '89 Schwinn Probe, on which virtually every component has been replaced over the years.

Recently stolen. Some needle-dicked ****weasel cut my cable and made off with it.

Dammit, I'd just got all the quirks worked out of it. It was really nice.

Actually, that frame size is quite comfortable for me. The next size up is what they *say* fits me but is actually a tick too big. It's just that I look like a bear on a unicycle on the smaller frame.

Also let me say that fenders ("mudguards") are a grace from the Lord.

I love the Vision R-40. I have a Rans Rocket myself:

...but I don't ride any kind of distance these days so it's looking for a good home.

Hmmm...I really wish you were closer ,I'd like to try one .Recumbents are pretty rare here .There are a few 3 wheelers , like the Greenspeed but 2 wheeler like yours are thin on the ground .

Peter there are some bent riders from Oz on the Bent Rider On Line forum:http://www.bentrideronline.com/
Not sure if any are in your area but it may be worth signing up.Loads of bent info.If you want to come to Nova Scotia you are welcome to try out the V Rex.Of course we are just getting over 30 cm of snow so it may be a challenge.;)

Here is my board racer replica bulit from a Prewar - 1936 Cleveland Bicycle.
I found the very rusty frame and took it down to metal. I painted the bike with matching harley davidson colors from 1912. The frame was built by the same artisains that built the great indian racers from the turn of the century to the 40s.

It is a little heavy but it is fun to ride on short runs. it shows well.
