Commuter Bikes

This is going to the local PD.

I was really bothered by the “Dumb Driver.” So I decided to see about clearer images from the video I took. After playing with the videos and taking screen shots, I finally got a clear shot of his license plate and his face. I’m making a copy of the video and photos and sending that over to the Fullerton PD. Now if I see him living in the area, I’m giving him a copy too with a note saying that its been sent to the PD.

Benotto Rehab Update…It’s done

That’s right my vintage Benotto is done. I ended up getting most of this stuff free from the LBS. I did have to pay for the pink bar tape, bottle cage, cable and housing. But the Mavic MA40 wheelset, tires, drop bars and Tektro brake levers were free.

So scheck it out mang…

oooh lugs…

Unfortunately its too small for Priscilla and its too big for my oldest. So guess what, I’m selling it. I just don’t have room in my garage for it. It does make me sad to see it go, but I’m sure someone else can enjoy it.

Only problem is, I’m not so sure how much to sell it for. Any suggestions…and don’t give me those responses where you say….”you’d have to give me money to take it!”
