Unbelievable! How did you manage to have any fun without full suspension, 29+, disk brakes, carbon frame, dropper post and 1X12?

I feel so sorry for you :p

Droppers.

This is the VRC forum, can I be cranky and say if one more person tells me they can't imagine even riding without one and they just know if I get one I'll immediately agree, I'm gonna punch them in the junk?

Looks like a fun day, good on ya!

Dude, you’re an animal! That’s a serious ride.

What is the blue cruiser style bike? I think I’ve seen it before, but it’s very nice!

It's okay. The same people that can't imagine riding sans dropper are the same that can't imagine riding 50 miles of back country mountain passes and stopping for lunch at a peak to take in the scenery.

Of course, to them "vintage" means 2005-2015, single speed is synonymous with "dirt jumper" and a mountain biking "adventure" means you had to go to 4 different websites to find the right bottom bracket.

I turn 50 tomorrow, so I'm getting my "cantankerous old coot old" in anticipation. Sigh.

Grumps

By the way, this was 100% sarcastic.

7/8" seatposts FTW

I sold my prewar before moving to Germany 4 years ago... regretting it.

Your Cook Brothers & JWesty’s Pre-War (& several others on this forum) were the impetus for my cruiser/klunker! It’s close to finished after 10 years. Quarantine has been great for bike projects!

Can't wait to see it!
Unfortunately, it’s not a pre-War frame, it’s an 80’s Schwinn cruiser with lots of mods and parts I’ve machined, but I love it!

I’ll start a new thread so I don’t hijack yours.
