Yes - I love riding my bike. It's an old red one, not sure of the make etc. It was gifted to me from a friend and I use a tag-along for my son, really fun:)
I would like to get white-rim tyres soon and maybe a more comfortable seat.

Chainless cruiser??? A chainless bike - that sounds wild!!:thumb:
You all own some neat bikes.:)

I own a lovely black Brompton that i use to cycle to uni...

since i can hear all the bike snobs scowl and sneer, i can claim to part own (since Mr Nightie owns) a "(psy)Cotic BFe" and a "Cotic Roadrat."

Since Mr Nightie is a motorcyclist as well as a downhiller, he wanted the power of a downhill bike without the ponce of a folding bike....... so...... he had his "Cotic BFe" sawn in half:eek: and had 'joiny together things' (the technical name for them:blushing:) hold it together, so it is now completely portable by motorbike:guitar:!!

Mr Nightie has owned many bikes (Marin, Giant, Raleigh commando back in the day:guitar:), but his most impressive one was his KTM downhill bicycle ... he got it to match his KTM motorbike!:straightface:

PS: I can pop wheelies (if 3" off the ground for a 1 second duration counts:()!

Hey, I wondered if any of you cycling enthusiasts were aware of the seedy side of biking:eek: - well, it's not really seedy:rolleyes:, it's just bikes with seedy names:squiffy:. A lot of the major bike manufacturers had fun with the names of bikes, just to embarrass the riders:doh:, mind it's pretty hard to embarrass a hard ass downhiller going 30mph on a dirt track:guitar:....

I thought i'd just share some of the names with you for your amusement (sorry, they're rude, but they're genuine bike models):blushing:

COVE bikes offer a.... hooker, std, g spot, stiffee and many more that are even more risque`
KONA bikes offer a.... stinky and for the Moz fan, they also offer a Jake, a Jake the snake, and a Major Jake bike:lbf:

that's not a seat - that's a sofa!!!:lbf::lbf::lbf:
Looks mighty comfortable... butt ache is one of the worst things about biking:squiffy:

it felt like i was sitting on a bar stool the first time i put it on.

the feeling of falling while riding a bike sucks. i got used to it pretty fast.
