My bike

I realized today, that I have never posted any picture of my bicycle. 33 posts, a couple of months, and several pictures like "Weird" Al Yankovic being chased by a very ticked off goose later, and no pictures of my bike. Well, that is going to end! Right now!

Yes, this is my bike. It's a veritable hodge-podge of parts from various sources, a "Franken-bike" if you will. With parts picked up from craigslist, eBay, and trips to several bike shops. All lovingly put together by yours truly. With a 1993 Koga-Miyata steel frame, it isn't the lightest bike out there, but it has been very reliable for the past 2 years. Yes, I am still using downtube shifters. I can't afford STI shift levers yet, and it brings a nice retro feel to the bike.
