Here are a few more out of the stable. At first glance, these bikes seemingly have nothing in common.
What they do have in common is they are all very cool bikes. These three have rounded out my collection nicely. Each does something different. Something completely different. And each does it very well.
Early 80′s Merckx w/ Campy. Rides like a dream. Someday I’ll be stripping this one down, cleaning it all up, and then putting it back together. Until then I’ll just stare at it as I drink beer out in my garage.
Early 90′s Salsa mtb (#743) w/ Shimano XT. This was my first “real” mountain bike. The one which changed everything. Most of us had a bike like that at some point in our lives. This is mine.
Voodoo Agwe. This was on the one bike I got stoked about in Vegas. And now I’ve got her in the stable. Ready, willing and able. You can actually buy one of these, brand new, right now, unlike the other two above. Any shop with a BTI account can get one for ya. I recommend you consider doing so.
Pretty much bone stock in that photo. ‘Cept I did change out the wheels for a pair I had hanging around in the garage. Why? Basically I was was too lazy to sort out a fixed cog for wheel that came with it – it came with a freewheel. I wanted to ride her fixed. I’m a bit of a nutter at times. As in most of the time. Whatever. I had a wheel set ready to go with a Surly flip-flop with a 17t. All I’ve done on this bike is get beer. And that is about all I need a bike to do these days. I can truely say this bike does it all for me. Others have done more with an Agwe, like ride on actual single track. Me? I’m risk adverse.by
