I will post pictures soon

Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking

Postby Kalgrm » Sun Feb 03, 2008 8:50 pm

"I will post pictures soon" is a cry for help from another dimension in a parallel universe. Edward is stuck between planes: it is the multi-dimensional equivalent of the sinking hand of a drowning man.

Edward lives in a parallel universe. In it, he has been a member of this forum for many years and has a post count exceeding Richard's. (Co-incidentally, in that universe, Richard has only two bikes, both of which fit.)

Parallel Edward has just bought the latest steel-framed Giant with remotely inflated tyres and self adjusting saddle angle. His Shimano components (using their 90 year old backwardly compatable standards) are just wearing in after being on his previous four frames.

Parallel Edward is justifiably proud of his new bike and want's to show us pictures, but his iCam won't talk to his Windoze Vespa. Thus, there is no hope for our new friend, since iCorp and Windoze are not compatible in any dimensional reality.

Oh - the humanity!

He aught to know, he's got two of them.



Ahhh, but only because I can't afford a REAL bike.

Too late. That's really horrible. Focus, composition and lighting are all wrong :twisted:

We're into the second page already and edward is yet to respond, methinks this is a job for Captain Jacks mob.

A 'bent is a recumbent bike (Richard and I both own them).

Stryker, it was shot on 5x4 inch film (large format) in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

Here's a real 'bent rider on his way out the door for a ride. :)

Just another Sunday morning ride .....

(Edit: One of me on Richard's 'bent:)

Ahh - how well I remember Kalgoorlie's thunderstorms. Truely something to behold. Well captured Graeme!

Now you see why we have christened Graeme the Hugh Hefner of the cycling world. You should have seen him last Sunday cruising down the Freeway bike path in his smoking jacket and loafers....

Actually no. I believe he rides a touring bike :D

I met him the other day on the freeway. :shock: He was riding a touring bike and it was fully loaded. Said he had been riding for eternity. :D

Must of been in one of those gears where the chain ring has less teeth than the one on the wheel itself.
