    I like my current two-wheeler, but I've had a couple of upgrade itches lately. I have not acted on them. ;) I was looking for a "commuter" type of bike for running errands, and locally a Specialized Expedition came up for sale. The difference is that the seating position is further back, so the riding position is more upright. It still has a suspension front fork and a spring seat post, so taking all of those curbs and bumps in the local roads won't be so jarring. I may get my better half this same bike in the "low entry" version, as she currently has a Giant Sedona from about a dozen years ago--it's a solid bike, but not very comfortable to ride (given her health issues). The seating position of the Expedition would be easier on the wrists and the back. I can find deals on brand new models that are from 2015 still. (2017 discontinued the Expedition, replacing it with the Roll, which loses some of the features.)

    For the trail, however, I was eyeballing a new Specialized Sirrus Sport Carbon, which has the carbon frame. I've read that the Sirrus (even w/o the full carbon frame) is a fast bike. Rather than a suspension fork, the Sirrus has what are called Zertz inserts which absorb some of the road shock. This setup has the flat handlebar and disc brakes that I prefer. I just don't like the color (a drab mix of charcoal/carbon grey/red...ugh). I may wait until next season and see what they offer next year for color choices.

    Everyone forgets about Greg LeMond. He was the original badass. Ive got one of those Cinellis. As long as you dont strip the allen, youre good.

    I always liked the idea of hidden binder bolts. I was the first in my group to modify my brake mounting with Allen head binders (back in `76), and I had a machinist friend machine a custom-made sealed-bearing headset for my Raleigh Pro (visible in the second photo). Just about everything was DIY back then.... :)

    Please excuse the dirtiness of the bike....it looks quite fugly at the moment !

    Well, finally decided I'm going to try to commute to work on a regular basis. Good excuse to get a new bike. :biggrin:

    Nothing special here- 40 bucks got me a mongoose 24" 21 spd mountain bike.

    Only sweet deal was the fox racing rear shock and fork shocks, oil filled dampers also fox racing. Ive done about 20 miles so far. 20170623_062810.jpg 20170623_062805.jpg
