    At long last, here they are.

    Recumbent pixxorz, ride report photos, amateur images not worthy of the fourth estate, whatever you calls 'em, here they are.

    Honeysuckle on a fence, on the road again, a shed and a barn, Nottingham park, barrens plants, corn as high as an elephant's ankle, muffler man.

    The new whip is a pretty good solution to my problems, and gloves solve the nasty rubber hand grips. Actually, I suited up all the way, Lownge jersey and all.

    Ballsy, considering I don't have a schrader pump, and all that. I figure it will be easier to pop for 2 presta tubes and keep the old zefal.

    I don't know where the pin is that would do the schrader thing any more. I probably put it somewhere safe back in the 90s, three places ago.

    Anyhow, it was nice to go for a 2 hour spin and not be gimpy afterwards.

    I dropped the camera in the mud. That's the funny looking picture.

    Nice going. Glad you're getting out there. I headed out at 06h00 this morning. I always do long Sunday rides.

    Chapeau!

    No pipe. Alas, nobody's perfect. I do have facial hair and a pot belly.

    Flat what?

    Saw one this morning climbing the big hill by the supermarket, had a windshield and everything. It looked comfy.

    Great photos!! Can't imagine what it's like to be "non-gimpy" after a long ride.

    It is remarkably comfortable. And nice not to be all twisted up afterwards.

    I was thinking that 10ae1203 may find himself in great shape in short order and find out he can tolerate a road bike or mountain bike. It's amazing how fast you can kick into shape, but those first 6-10 weeks are killers acquiring a regular routine.

    I had never heard of them before, but you could fill a book with things I have never heard of.

    Have you stuck a baseball card in the spokes so it sounds like a motorcycle yet? That's the first thing I would've done.
