One of our local cyclists here in Reno. He rides everywhere. I wish I could get a good clean shot of his bike. I just happened to have the digicam in my pocket when he rounded the corner, I said 'OK if I get your pic?' and he slowed a little and said click, so I clicked.

The bike has a CB radio, elevated light assy, antennaes, wiring, and other assorted cr@p all over it. I think it must weigh about ninety pounds... pretty cool
Look at that poor rear tire!MisJG

Think he's running max psi? What kind of ride characteristics do you think it has? Does the ride feel 'squishy'?

He used to park his bike, err... home next to my house by the railroad tracks. It was a triangular blue (at the time) plywood looking box that he slept in on the back of his bike. I cant remember but it seemed like the bike had a pivot somewhere as similar to a trailer i guess, and the tires were like go-cart tires. He had long cool dreads and always wore a rasta hat. He was always running super low gears, pedaling like 100 rpm going 5 mph. When we saw it parked, we never knew if he was inside or not. also, when it was parked, it wasn't quite level on its kickstand--wonder if he had a subfloor to compensate so his sleep was level. cool.
Yes, I watch him every night. He kills bugs for a living.Spoiler

Undercover pro cyclist...?shakyfish

With all of the popularity of pro cycling in the states, it could be Lance himself. He may be undercover as to not draw attention to himself.

Do you think those Levi's have chamois? One of those baggy riders with a case of envy.
If he's on this Mon-Fri,....jesse1
