    Hey Schwinnray,

    That's a great action shot!
    I really like the rake on that bike.

    So Schwinnray, I'm finally get to respond after your appreciated bump
    Wanted to shake my Spaceliner down abit
    for the ride tomorrow with the little guy and his sting ray
    Sunny, high clouds, 32F, NW wind at 15 mph.

    Got to the Mississippi with the wind

    Pushed against the wind, up and down hills on the way to Franklin ave bridge
    [​IMG]

    Traveling south, best way to take advantage of a wind at you back, sit up, no hands...
    [​IMG]

    Was pushed down to Lake Street bridge (Downtown Mpls in background)
    [​IMG]

    Pushed the wind back from the river, mostly off the saddle

    It was fun! Who else is riding theirs?
    Thanks for looking

    Hey Guys,
    Great to see others out on their bikes (a while back)or hanging in the Hall of Fame.
    Little to no snow again, 33F, light wind and foggy/sunny. Got the Spaceliner out.
    Oh man, it felt so good to have a light responsive bike (vs 45lbs MTB) and get some speed going:D
    Last of the direct sunlight by the Mississippi River, beware the glare :lol:

    And for the finally, no hands.

    So nice to get it out again. Anybody else not have winter (or ridable weather)?
    Thanks for looking

    Hey Randy,
    Super video! Listened to "Endless Summer" on 8 track in Quadraphonic stereo (with 4 speakers!) over and over.. :lol:
    Love the orange rims and peace sign. Looks like you had fun! :mrgreen:
    Cool fun on cool bikes! Thanks for posting!

    Hey Everybody,
    Beautiful day for February in MN. Sunny, Blue skies, 35F with light winds!
    Got out on the Spaceliner for my 8 mile Mississippi River Ride
    Can tell I'm out of shape from last fall. :lol: Had a great workout.

    One of my favorite pics of your bike, and one of my favorite bikes here! I love the vibe that thing has going on. Glad to see it getting ridden.

    I'm hoping to have an entry this year that will get a lot more miles! Not sure it will be as cool as yours, but I'm gonna try.

    Hey Thanks Stickman! :D Can't really take the credit, most of it is the cool futuristic frame.
    I like your OCRCS a lot. Very stylish with the flat black, red rims/accents and whitewalls!

    Today is 66F, 20-30mph winds, and sunny. Broke a 100 year old record. First shorts ride! Last week, long underwear :lol:
    Was out of the saddle for the first half of the ride. My new Origin 8 stem is 1.5" taller and that helped
    Minnehaha Falls is flowing now and the ice looks cool
    [​IMG]

    Still some ice and birds on Lake Hiawatha
    [​IMG]

    And Lake Nokomis looked like a parade with all the people walking around it :D

    What a great day!
    Who else got out today?

    Thanks for looking

    I got out for some trial runs of winter work on my BSA Pubman and the Dyno Deuce. Both are sgl. spd. and geared very alike. The Pubman was flyin' with a 46/16 (stock was 46/18) and I went farther than I planned, turned around and met THE Dreaded Wind, argggg. It was a JOB getting back. Both felt great, though, (especially the BSA with the 'new' vintage Ideale 'serial numbered' 52 saddle I scored) in spite of me being a flabby winter old guy, and Im getting revved again........ :D
    I like the higher stem on that bike, MC, sure doesnt take a lot of inches to feel better. It must be a lovely ride; you use it so much :wink: .

    Hey Everybody.
    Cool shot Skipton! Have had that shot tuckin' into the wind myself
    Thought only thing better would be to see your pretzel position :lol: Then you posted your videos, awesome!

    Have actual "In Action" shots today :D Took a mellow ride to Minnehaha Falls. Packed with people having fun outside
    Met up with some people that biked in for a BBQ, beers, and frisbee. They seems to like the Spaceliner so I asked if they wanted to ride it
    Got this guy coming back going through the grass and acorn shells after a mondo ride.
    [​IMG]

    I tried to get speed shot of Tony. Both got it fast, at least 18-20mph :D
    [​IMG]


    They said they had a blast and a workout. :lol: Their bikes were awesome too.
    Think this one was call "Hamburger Bike" (because of the bell). Cool Chicago Schwinn with a 7 speed
    [​IMG]
    Tony had some large white Schwalbes carrying the food and beverage
    [​IMG]
    Super fun to see some other people riding it. Then tried to catch the last light above the Mississippi

    It was a good day. Thanks for looking.
