Currently Riding this 'Bent

It's a beast - 45 pounds of cheap imported mild steel

When not riding the 'bent... I'm riding this....

No clue how much it weighs... But it's a very old lugged cro-moly frame + the obvious extras (It is an old picture - I do have brakes and a better seat etc.).

It's not mine (either one), but it gets some use (one in foreground): 2007 UCF HPV

It is also a pig... At 90 pounds Luckily, most of that is in the fairing - and we're optimizing for weight for next year's HPV.

Trying to Buy:

32 pounds (not the lightest - but very nice )

Luckily for me - there's no appreciable hills (well, no hills really - just gentle slopes) So weight isn't really a factor that concerns me

Oh yeah... I like bikes. Especially your not so average variety. I'd commute to school on a penny farthing if I had one

Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
