Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

Long Ride!

We did this route today... about 32km all told!

Yowza, that was a hell of a ride!  Took on a few more hills that we really needed to, but it was a bunch of people's first time out for 2008 so we had to make the most of it. 
Loved the east side loop!  Bombing down Slocan past Van Tech is something I've always wanted to do but never thought I'd be around there on a bike.  Woohoo!!!

I think it was at least 32.

Yes, we did that route... amazing day! Not to mention we had a flat along the way which was promptly repaired. I had a great time with everyone today... it truly was fantastic. More of that kind of ride is certainly in order for days to come.

My newishly acquired ride- the Manhattan Aero in red, with stock everything except for fenders. The seat needs to be replaced, and the bottom bracket needs overhauling too, but a small price to pay for a great ride.

Thanks again guys! Bryn, you rock.
