If you're jumping out of a perfectly good airplane you can find your own damn way home.

I'm not a collector but I'd hang that baby on a wall.

My second bicycle was a BSA with a three speed twist shift built into the right handlebar grip.
I loved that bike.
I think it was made by Birmingham Small Arms.

Need one of those cheater bikes the pros were using.

Yeah, everything under the sun somebody attached it to a bike frame.

Even the frames were an experiment over the years.

These two were tough, I can't even imagine walking on that road for very far.

Had the E.J. Korvette's version with both wheels the same size. We did a lot of jumping over milk crates. My personal best was 11 milk crates.


The injuries didn't happen until my fondness for knights and armor led me to organize a stingray jousting tournement with bamboo carpet poles for lances and garbage can lids for shields.


That was one of those ideas that was better on paper.

Bike news here.

Our most recent ride featured me limping back from the turnaround point on a flat tire. I was too irritated to sort it out properly. Fuckit, I'll ride the rim home, 3.8 miles.

I am... tired of this bike. I did some "research" and decided I like another bike, the Axum 29er from Schwinn. Go on, laugh. I'm getting a bike from Walmart. But it's bigger than my current bike, bigger tires/wheels, more modern-er in every respect. I anticipate upgrading some of the components, eventually, like the fork, and the brakes, and a chain... Guide/supporter thingy, if not a whole new derailleur with a clutch.

As time goes by, that is.

I have to tell you, getting a new bike was A LOT harder than I expected. Here's a picture from the bike section at Walmart. This was the scene at all thr Wal-Mart stores I went to, and both pawn shops and f*ckin Craigslist. NO BIKES TO BE HAD.

Oh no, changing bikes will void your security application and you'll have to start all over.

Uh, don't get a haircut either.

That's a good buy at $400. You're not riding Moab, it should be fun.
