    Lugged steel beauty!

    Here's Cedar, my lovely new/old Giant RS940! She's been to the "spa" at Robinson Wheelworks, and emerged from her crysalis with spiffy new Nitto All-Rounder bars, a basket, gorgeous brass bell, laced grips, new brake levers and cables, and BMX pedals. (now I have 2 1/2 road bikes with BMX pedals, yummy!) Next up: a Brooks B67... and maybe a powdercoat.

    (and check out that nice Bridgestone in the background. Hey, RogueDog...)

    Here's a close-up with a view of Bars, Bell, Basket, Badge, and BMX.
    We sprinkled her with champagne and toasted her arrival with bubbly and chocolate. Hooray!

    i found the bike being sold used for $80 and said to myself "self" I said "that looks just Knotted's size". So I got it.

    Turns out it's circa 1987

    Chris at Robinson added Panaracer Pasela tires, Tectro brake levers. We took her on a short inaugural ride on the Alameda Creek trail today, sweet! And it's amazingly light. Knotted frolicked through the gravel parts of the trail bonding with the bike

    Wow! She cleans up so nicely. I'm digging the handled basket. I can just picture the two of you strolling arm-in-arm through the farmers market with Knot's basket hanging from the crook of her free arm. I hope y'all enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Very nice! The leather grips and brass bell make a very classy combo.

    Very nice! I like the silver color and the headbadge!

    I confess I'm having a hard time keeping all your bikes straight at this point.

    Me too! But they sure all seem to be beautiful. Plus, have ya'll noticed the number of clothing reviews by the OP? - I'm noticing about 2 per month. I'm making fun but you are doing a great service for this community. Where would people like me be without people like you? I have been clued in to so much cool apparel.

    None of our bikes are straight
    They are the following, Trek's bikes:
    Mondonico Futura Legero - the custom Italian road bike
    Motobecane Mixte - converted to a freewheel by Chris & the guys of Robinson Wheelworks (hi Chris!)
    GT Outpost trail - at least 20 years old, my commutermobile, powdercoated bright yellow actually, these are all Robinson builds.

    Knott:
    Waterford X12 cross bike - beautiful gold bike, purchased right here from a TE'er.
    Surly Cross Check - utility bike with 'stache bars (see the "show me your commuter-bike" thread) and now
    Giant RS940 soon to be powercoated a deep luscious red.
    part ownership of a Kona smoke soon to be outgrown by her son.

    Ah yes, I remember when you recently got that bike painted yellow!
    My fave of yours is the Motobecane....what a beauty!

    Ok, so correct me if I'm wrong- I think I actually remember on the forum here over the past two years when you got each one of these four bikes! -I certainly do remember when you nabbed that yummy Waterford!
    But then that leaves the question...what were you riding before these 4 bikes??

    Knott rode a Kona Dew before her current stable, and I had a Trek 420.

    So Knot- is Cedar going to live over at Trek's for when you are visiting?

    Hmmm...next thing you know you'll be keeping a toothbrush over there too!
