Photo taken from the Tweed Run photostream.
Many classic retro bikes.
Looking from the angle of this photo, bars had started to bend down and make riders more aero.
Made me think that the classic drop-bar was just a process of evolution.

You need a "Ride Guide" placard on the back of your bike.
Speaking of your bike, what's the 411 on it?

Wheels shipped the hanger Monday, Priority Mail.
It left Denver early yesterday, the USPS tracking site is saying Friday.
Not too much priority?
But that will be late Friday here when we get our mail.
I think I'll have the Ridley back together by then...

I actually like those knickers and argyle socks. Put together a winter "tweed" ride. I could see Steve, The Motor, in a pair of those if they'd fit around those calves of his.
