'tis better to have ridden and lost than never ridden at all

I probably should have kept my nordavinden or sold it for a bit more.
I never did get it dialed into the bike I wanted.


man i had so much fun on & with this bike


Good bike



But also this

and this

I would ride either of these 10/10.
Dang and the other ones too. Aluminum looks good, actually.

I remember seeing the RL a long time ago, but the 'zetti, got dang.

That’s one that I really wish the head tube was ~30mm taller and I’d probably still be riding it. The most telepathic handling I’ve experienced, I think.

Making me want to have a disc gaulzetti/skeletor built up…

What a storied life under the feather duster


Spooky was always the coolest bike builder, making rad alu bikes I had no need or money for.

Aren’t they on like the third revival now? Owned by a group of investors with no connection to the old sXe shirts and FTW days?

third, maybe fourth iteration. I think FTW was building frames for them again in the last couple of years, not sure about now. Or if they still exist

Their site says Handmade In Arizona, IG says Handmade In Colorado but no posts in a year and a half.

I guess Spooky is too punk to live so it died again.


My introduction to basket life. I loved this bike so much.

This thing was a great winter fixie.

My first “nice” bike.

The Official Tarck Olmo!

And another bike that’s still in the fam


I kinda regret selling this one since Waterford closed. Especially since it got stolen from the guy I sold it to. @spaghetti, did he ever get it back?

But then I think, huh, I have another steel canti rando bike that I never ride and then I’m glad I sold it.

This one sure was a 'beaut!

@amy, do you still have it?


When I think back, I’m amazed how many fixed gear miles I put on this thing. I rode it from Chicago to Wisconsin for cryin out loud!

It was the bike that started it all.
RIP, The Crosscheck.


no :frowning:

AirTag gave us an address for a few days but the wonderful police force refused to do anything, then it disappeared.


1983 Miyata Twelve Hundred

Cheapo crabon wheels, Rival drivetrain, weird cranks. But damn that gold/brown sparkle paint, that nice tubing. Really should have kept it, I need a road bike back in my life.

1993 Bridgestone MB-2

This had everything, and I am a dummy for ever getting rid of it.
Sw8 lugged frame and fork, high-flange WI rear hub/SON front with matchy nice wide D521 rims. Ritchey 94bcd cranks. High-polish Avid brakes and levers. XT thumbies shifting over an 8-speed XTR cassette. Dyno lights. SUPER MOTO tires in the OG supple-r 26" version.


Why did you have to go and make me trawl eBay for 80s road frames like this?


I do! Don’t ride it much but maybe I’ll move back down the hill next year and use it as my town bike again.
