On Thanksgiving Day, I remembered that on the previous year's holiday I had pulled all of my bikes out for a "family photo." I was determined to do the same again this year to chronicle the additions, one departure, and the many changes that have occurred.
They grow up so fast, don't they?
Instead of just dumping the new family photo on here, I'm going to drop in the occasional photo from that day. Fiona and I took a number of "group" photos, assembling bikes by brand, design and purpose.
Our first installment is The Commuters. Each of my bikes takes at least an occasional turn taking me to the office, but these two are the workhorses on this job.
Here is Takumashi, the Nishiki Citisport, and Geordie, the Raleigh Superbe. Both have Brooks saddles -- B72 on Geordie, B67 on Takumashi -- North Road handlebars, Zimbale saddle bags and a touch of twine here or there.
I keep wondering whether either or both would be suitable for a long distance trip. Any thoughts?
