You need to manually set the height and width for big pictures otherwise they are *HUGE*, i.e.

Code: [Select]
[img height=480 width=640] ... your image url goes here ... [/img]

My Dawes Galaxy:

[img height=516 width=511]http://www.bridgecommand.co.uk/~james/dawes.jpg[/img]

Bought as a wreck from ebay for £20, and been pretty much entirely rebuilt since then, for use as a tourer and commuter. It's a very early Galaxy, from ~1965 when they were bought out as 5 speed sports bikes.

There's an interesting collection of catalogues which include this generation of Galaxy at http://bulgier.net/pics/b...gs/Dawes-64/04_Galaxy.jpg. Interestingly it looks as if these very early ones didn't use 531.

PS Long time lurker on ACF, I'll post a quick hello message, hopefully in the appropriate place in the Office Reception

And the pages load SO much faster if you actually resize the pictures to that resolution. We don't all have 8meg Fibre Optic ;)

Not the most current of photos, but...

1985 Schwinn Cimarron - MTB converted to commuter/rough-stuff/kid-towing bike. Now has Schwalbe Marathon Cross tires, rather than the Big Apples.

Appologies for the bad pictures, just snapped them on my mobile phone.

Trike


Audax Bike


Best* Bike


Commuting Bike

and a tandem, but there is no space in the flat to take a pic of it

*Best meaning lightest, fastest road bike, not favourite
**Not that I actually train for anything, but I'm not sure what else to call the road bike I normally ride on not on the best* bike

Aidan,
Your Airborne looks absolutely awesome.
I love that look - the colours are just perfect to my eye.
That is what I hope to achieve or similar when we finally get our Cycle2Work scheme up and running.
That is so lovely.

Whsh the 1981 Woodrup (Giro?)

Oooh, an excuse to repost bling!

I'm sure my Woodrup and your Woodrup could do naughty things together...

Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Thanks Andy

It does really look that good in the flesh as well, although   it has a different chainset on it now and a white Spesh Toupe saddle. I could still sit and look at it all day. It rides really nicely as well. Longest ride to date on it was 130 odd miles.

This was taken last summer. Currently in bits at the moment as I upgrade to Ultegra.

I have just mown the lawn, and it looks great.
Normally I would be cleaning the bikes right now and then I'd take a photo and post it on here.
But not today, I am remaining firm.
