So something like:
My name is Thom and I have a Bicycle Addiction. These are 3 of the 9:
All I did was add the Avids, shorter RF stem, and the smoothies.
Built to resemble an early Mt. Tam bike as featured in the Smithsonian article. 70's era Schwinn frame, Landing Gear Fork, 8 speeds, Atom/Sachs drum brake hubs converted to sealed cartridge bearings, poly lined internal cable routing, 35 lbs.
Bike is an SS build from parts sourced as my student budget could afford them. I was riding it by early '98. Uses a short cage road deraileur for tension after a Singlator type device proved totally unreliable on the Downieville Downhill. Too fat to ride it much these days.
Trailer is a scratch built sized to hold exactly 3 full brown paper grocery bags (remember those?). Frame weighs 11 lbs, rear wheel & tire assembly weigh 10 lbs.
EDIT: Just noticed that my Chico Townie is sort of visible hanging on the wall in the background. S-A drum hubs, unkwn BMX Cruiser frame, Powerlite bars.

I used to swerve around my hallucinations, now I drive right through them.
