    Me too

    I've got a Nishiki from 87 that is converted. I just replaced it with a Rig though. This way I can hit a trail or two during the road route.

    ..was my old Peugeot. Here it is with my wife (then girlfriend) and dog (Joey) at the Lompoc SAG at the Solvang Century. The next year I did it on my fixie. I still ride it now and again; I've owned the bike for almost 20 years.

    Too many bikes + Uemployment

    = Too much time to tinker...

    Check out the pic below for my "fixie". It's a track bike I got for free about 8 years ago. I'm still working up the courage to ride it.

    is that a steel legaro?
    No, it's a steel Quattro Assi that I bought about 15 or 18 years ago (my first road bike)

    I can't tell what your gearing is, but maybe drop it down a little if it is too high, and put a front brake on it as well, then maybe it won't be so scary.
