    My dream bike.

    Hopefully, I can earn enough this year to buy one.

    It's a 29" wearing Jones loop bars.

    Fuji Crosstown 2.5 hybrid/lifestyle bike. I've put 1000 + miles on it. Best bike I've ever had. Paid $250 for it nearly new. I have certainly gotten my moneys worth out of it. Bike seat is on a gas shock that squeaks and I haven't been able to get it to stop. Sometimes when I'm using a lot of force going up a steep incline the pedals give way. I'm thinking I'm overcoming the spring arm of the shifting system. Sucks when you're using a ton of force and the pedal drops out from under you for half a rotation. It has been awesome otherwise though and I have had zero issues with it. Columbus has some great bike trails and we try to get out and enjoy them as much as possible. We might ride 10 miles in one direction and see two other people. Absolutely crazy some of them get used this little. The trails are about 18-20 ft wide paved asphalt with a line down the middle and they go through lots of parks but basically are otherwise in the middle of the woods in no- man's land as a part of conservation type setting. definitely one of my favorite things about columbus though there are plenty of things to love.

    Wife's Fuji in front of mine. An Absolute ONE.9

    Serious cycling nut here. I have a dedicated room in our house just for them since we don't have a garage.
    You'll be seeing more posts for sure.
    Here are my last two builds with custom frames:

    Desalvo All-Roads Bike. Goes anywhere with just a tire swap, I had it built for gravel riding

    [​IMG]

    Rock Lobster Road Bike. Just a very fast steel frame road machine sub 20lbs.

    Slade -- be careful about that spring giving loose. If it gives at just the wrong time and your nut sack meets your top tube in a nanosecond.............there is no need to ask how I could know such thing. :eek:

    Here's my current bike since 2010. Marin Bolinas Ridge Disc. This pic is a few years old. Last spring, I replaced the stock bars with a set of Jones Loop Bars that come stock on my dream Surly ECR. Vast improvement. I'll try to get a new pic soon.

    None of y'all have banana seats? Or baseball cards in the spokes?

    Where's the dislike button?
