OK Chas, you are getting under my skin now...
He who laughs last.... ;-(

We're in the midst of a major drought. November through March is our rainy season. There was NO rain in January and very little last month.

This great weather is nice for now but we'll pay for it by summer when we won't be able to bathe or shower!

So getting back to antidepressants and sexy pictures....

I'm taking my recently completed 1982 Motobecane Team Champion out for it's first real ride this afternoon.

Hi. Sorry to hear. I understand about injuries and how incredibly frustrating it can be to want to do your activity and to either not be capable to do it at all or at a very decreased capacity. Then to watch, as your muscles that you worked to hard to develop start to decondition. Very frustrating. I've been dealing with a pelvic issue a long time and still have not been able to run like I want (marathon). It sucks. Hang in there & remember that your situation is temporary. It will get better.


In the meantime these are gorgeous bikes, and now I'm depressed that I don't have even one.

It is probably one of the most responsive bikes in my stable. It gets a thumbs up from other C&V aware when I take it for a ride. The only other bike that comes close is the Serotta. Thanks again Sloar!

Maybe a bit of a tangent or hijack, but this is the sort of "porn" I can spend hours looking at:
bike parts fabrication from some "guy in Japan who really knows how to use a lathe" (as heading read on the CR List)

Υڡž

It's all in Japanese but it's the pictures that tell the story (and you can use a "translate" function if you need more text)
Some of his projects may seem of diminishing returns, but even if labors of love, it's great fun (for me) to watch this stuff come together.

That is a beautiful Peugeot! The colors work so well, and it looks like a classy bike- regardless of where it sat in the lineup of Peugeot or "all time" bikes.

I've always thought the blue 86/87 Trek 400 Elance bikes were the most beautiful, and I searched for one for a long time.

Yeah, the 400 is next to the bottom of the line, but even stock it was a well equipped bike with a 531 main frame and CrMo fork and stays. I've taken the opportunity to rebuild it with other parts that I deem "cool." Not only is it a beautiful and functional bike, but it shifts well, brakes well, and carries a decent load. I've also got an Avocet triple and a front rack ready for this guy.
