    Here's me on my Anything Goes Build Off bike, The Long Hauler, with my RRBBO5 bike , The King of Cowley County, on the back. Who can ride two build off bikes at the same time?

    Re: Show Us Your RRBO Bikes In Action!

    Ive only entered one bike in a build off, 'The Goon' in this years comp. Gets ridden regularly, including as a commuter.

    Took it into a bike swap in the city and freaked out some fixie hipsters :mrgreen:
    [​IMG]
    But it started to rain on the way back to the car... took some pics under the bridge anyway
    [​IMG]

    Also took it on the Sydney Tweed Ride

    And some shots taken specifically to go with my finished bike post for the build off

    Hey,

    Skipton,
    Great idea for a thread!
    Thanks for the Lake MI shots of Bellowing Yellow.
    I knew they were coming soon :lol:
    Gothic Yellow and white bike, Downtown skyline, blue skies, white clouds, big water, Awesome!

    Hewey,
    Your bike looks awesome in action and with the bare aluminum(so cool)
    Great to see the fixie kids gawk :D
    The rain shot is great with the reflections

    Udall Customs,
    Your bike carrier is just to cool

    Greylock,
    You fear nothing, do you?

    Snyder,
    That looks like a Mondo hill to tackle with those bars
    Do it while your young! :lol:


    I got a few from the first time out with HotRodLiner
    My wife was a bit nervous as she tried to get a shot straight at her :lol:
    [​IMG]

    I don't think she was that confident I could turn that quick with the Hipster bars
    I think she screamed a little bit and I couldn't help laughing :lol:

    [​IMG]

    One of my favorite No-Handed shots from the Greenway

    [​IMG]

    I love the way this bike reflects at twilight (again no handed, whee!)


    [​IMG]


    Looking forward to more of others action shots
    Now I inspired to do more!

    Re: Show Us Your RRBO Bikes In Action!

    This is actually in front of my house, the big building in the back was bought by the county, it was a resort built in the thirties ,and the reason the street is so wide was to allow aircraft to land, I guess Sammy Davis jr, Sinatra used to fly up here and do it up. It is supposed to turn into a culinary school. but the bike does get ridden, right now it has the goathead in the tire to prove it, guess I will fix that today.

    From the folder build-off. My niece, the new owner, uses it in the Philippines to get back and forth to college.

    From the second chance build off, although this is more of a third chance.
