    thanx guys. fattroy, the ridin is just o.k. here.. they have a "bike route" but it's nothing more than signs on the sides of the roads with bicycles on them!..They do have an annual cruise night downtown thats pretty cool. We'll have to figure somethin out!!

    Yeah man that sounds cool!!! We kinda have the same thing here with the bike routes. We do have a couple trails but nothing long like 1 mile or less each. I am down for doing some riding this year. That cruise night sounds really cool is it like a car cruise night? We'll figure something out when the weather let's us get out. Troy

    I like your bike a lot! Too bad there aren't any old 'cruiser-style' frames to be found in Europe... (they're all from the 90's)

    I posted a story in the collectors section, but heres the short one... The guy that gave me the bike saw it today for the first time since I got it and Really dug it!! He asked for the chainguard from it when he gave it to me and today he gave it back!! Looks pretty cool and just seems right![im[​IMG]g]
