    Not a toy....a well honed machine.

    I don't have full knobbies but have a more road friendly tread on the tires but still with enough pattern to be okay on dirt roads. (I don't do mud anymore. At least, not if I can help it.)

    I mostly ride back roads and trails.
    how old is it? my brother in law might have made it :D

    "Sunglasses and a Princess Grace scarf".....was that all you were wearing? :p
    You wish. No, I was wearing jeans, a thick jacket, and a teeshirt on the way in with my "real" clothes in the basket. Even then I was kind of cold.

    My round trip is 20 miles (more or less) with 80% being non-vehicle, dedicated bike paths. The shared part is widened and marked for bikes. Colorado is a real bike-friendly state. We'll vote for bike stuff and let the homeless starve out here. ;)

    Thank God. I was totally picturing:

    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
