"Before that, a Multito (used for 111,630 miles)......."

I just now noticed that. That's a whole lotta pedalling ! I am impressed.

Re: Trek Turns Two

The Cateye Micro with a button hidden on the bottom side to switch to cadence? Mine lost its brains when the battery finally had to be replaced (after 6 or 7 years!). The replacement has all the buttons on top where they are easy to find, but it just doesn't have as much character as the Micro.

We took the afternoon off and did a nice tandem ride in the foothills.

Yep, that's the one. My original battery lasted only a bit over 5 years; they conservatively claimed "Approx. 2–3 years." After you installed a new battery and before you concluded that yours "lost its brains," did you remember Cateye's instructions to "Press all three buttons simultaneously ... to clear all data" before resetting the wheel circumference, etc.?

Re: Trek Turns Two

Hi Edwin:

I thought of this post when I took my Gary Fischer Tarpon into the basement yesterday. I only placed at most 100-miles on it this year which is sort of sad given the amount you biked this year "so far".

Wayne

Re: Trek Turns Two

Hi Wayne :
That Gary Fisher is a nice bike ! I am still riding my tired "old"Trek , but I am looking at a Giant 29" mountain bike. 4052 km on the Trek so far this year,no chance of matching 2010's 3190 miles.

Re: Trek Turns Two

So far, this year I've added
8202 miles to my Windsor,
1542 miles to my Trek, and
0314 miles to the antique Schwinn.

Some years the bikes total more than the car.

Re: Trek Turns Two

Wow...I wish I lived in a place that was more bike friendly. Used to put a decent number of miles on my bikes...had a Diamondback Sorrento I had a fair number of miles on and a Schwinn replica of IIRC its bread-and-butter 1956 design...it was heavy though and not as much fun to ride as it should have been.

I really need to pick up my Dad's Specialized StumpJumper he bequeathed to me. I also would love to build a "rat rod" inspired low-riding beach cruiser kind of bike.

Me too. It's pretty scary around here , so most of my miles are on bike paths. I ride on the street only enough to get to the nearest path. One is a mile from home , the other is 1.8 miles.
Total miles for 2011 = 2596
Total miles for 2010 = 3175

Re: Trek Turns Two

Yeah where I grew up there were bike lanes galore - it was a snap to use a bicycle to do a lot of things or just for tooling around town for pleasure's sake. Here, there's nearly no bike lanes, very few sidewalks, narrow(ish) lanes, and drivers unaccustomed to bicyclists. No thank you.
