Varn - you have a Varna! Too cool for words.

I'm in a perpetual state of envy caused by photos of velomobiles and recumbent bikes & trikes.

As it is, I get around year round on this 37.5 lbs of awesomeness rescued from the garbage truck:

I put ~1000 km a year on this beater, in a town that's about 6 km wide. I've never locked it. (The fluorescent green spray job is apparently excellent theft deterrent.)

I've also got a classic 1997 GT Karakoram hard tail that I use on the local cross-country trails. It's my "good" bike
