Stick to playing the avuncular goofus; it suits you better.

We're 1.6mi away from him, off of Old Stilesboro Rd. between Stilesboro & ADW.

You'll need to stop by next time you're in the neighborhood so you can see your old, re-worked R11S saddle... assuming it's on a weekend: some of us are still paying our dues as 1099 slaves.

I'll email you when I'm up that way. Wife wants to look for a place on Allatoona.

Gee, thanks for the compliment, Craig. I feel honored.

Sorry for the hi-jack. We now return you to the bike-fest....

Debbie and me getting up-ended... and then wadded-up after falling about 5' to the trail below on a steep drop-off on our Ventana F/S tandem.

Yeah, group buy in that it would take the whole group to buy 1.

This is one of my wife's customer's bikes. He's in his 70's and drives a $300K Porsche - his only car. Doesn't have a bike rack and pays the shop owner to pick up and deliver his bikes when they need service. He rides tubulars on some of his bikes but it doesn't matter because he won't fix a flat anyway. He just calls someone to pick him up.

You probably better close the garage door, that is for sure.

Don't feel like you're missing out, it's a concept design by Specialized's Robert Egger... stylish vaporware and unobtainium. From my tandem cycling website's bulletin board last week:

Specialized Shiv Tandem Concept: Certainly by now, most tandem enthusiasts who surf the web on at least an occasional basis have stumbled across a video or photos of the Specialized Shiv Tandem Concept. The latest creation by Robert Egger of Specialized was first revealed in a short Twitter Video from Specialized back on December 7th. For those who have been tandem enthusiasts long enough to remember, Egger had produced a similarly, visually stunning track tandem concept bike back in 1992. Like the '92 bike, and being skeptical by nature, I suspect that this truly is a visual exercise and the bike itself is not functional, right down to the brakes and purported shaft drive (noting the '92 tandem concept also claimed a shaft drive). However, it has likely had what I suspect was it's intended effect by stimulating a lot of Internet buzz in the cycling community and the buzz still seems to be making its way through the various blogs, magazine columns and discussion forums replete with the ubiquitous "I gotta have one" comments from folks who have never ridden a tandem in their life. Again, that's one of the reasons why designers like tandems: they are eye catching in a way that even a radical single bike like the S-Works TTR prototype for the Shiv Time Trial bike will never be.

Of course, the internet being what it is, some details have come out such as a posting on the slowtwitch.com forums from Specialized's Mark Cote who noted:
"Awesome model from the Specialized design master, Robert Egger. Robert worked on this concept piece for a couple of years and finished it last spring. Pretty killer concept bike. You can see how concepts like the fork on this bike have made it into real bikes (like the Shiv).

Mostly made of alloy, wood, bondo, and paint but looks ready to race."
So, as Mark notes, concept bikes are what they are; awesome-looking designs that often times provide a glimpse of what may be in store on future designs.

You forced me to take a picture of my bike, its a far cry from my R12S. When I was racing I had a Litespeed Ultimate, full Dura Ace with Cosmic Carbone wheels, and carbon and ti farkles galore. When I quit racing I coudn't justify keeping a $5000 roadbike that I barely rode. I sold it on eBay, banked the cash and bought this Univega Columbus steel frame on closeout for $185, and swapped a set of tubulars for the Spinergy's, I had all the other parts in a bin. Total investment $200.

Not much to look at, especially given the quality of the rides shown above. But this is my recently acquired Beater/Project bike. Haven't even been on a bicycle in 30 years...so I suppose ATTGATT is called for?

Best guess is that this Raleigh Mountain Tour is 20 plus years of age and in severe need of a brake overhaul and a lot of elbow grease. Got it at a neighbor's garage sale for 10 bucks...got a 33% "good neighbor" discount from his original asking price...did I get a good deal? LOL

Cheers! Bill J
