    Canon M50

    Long story short. Way back in the old days I shot a LOT of film, mostly B&W. Took a stroll through digital, and for very complicated reasons, had to give that up. I just bought Canon's entry level M50 with 15-45mm lens. Just reading the manual tonight. I do plan on purchasing one more...

    Hasselblad pinhole

    Ha..ha... that's great! Never in my life would I have thought I'd see a Hasselblad converted into a pin hole camera. That old saying "where there's a will, there's a way" immediately comes to mind. J

    Pix, go ahead and delete it. I was going to pull it this evening anyway and put it up on Ebay. Sorry for taking so long, but I couldn't get in touch with anyone, short notice, to get some pics. It's all good! Thanks, J.

    I already removed it. Do what you have to do, though, rules are rules. I have a broken camera body and am scrambling to borrow a body. Truthfully, I was going to remove it anyway, so everyone is good, all around. Thanks, J.

    Sorry, I thought I mentioned to PM me and wasn't looking for your post. I live in Northern KY, so that's not going to work for you. My camera body is damaged, and the rules, as pointed out by one of the moderators, require pic's for "for sale" items. I'm scrambling to borrow a camera, or pull...

    Yep, that ought to do you! Test ride as many as you can, they can and do ride differently. Have the bike shop size you for the bike. Will make your endurance much better from the very start, with a properly sized bike, and you will enjoy riding more. Lastly, I'd get the hydraulic "BRAKES"...

    Jaca, Dirt/Gravel/Road: Then I would go to the bicycle shop and explain what you want. If the trails you're going to ride are going to be full of rock gardens, bunny hopping terrain, fast downhill berms etc, then first I'd make sure I could ride that kind of stuff before I set out. Then I'd...

    That's the whole reason behind the Shimano SPD pedals. The cage around them allows you to ride comfortably clipped in or with just running/training shoes. Many riding shoes, as you probably know, nowdays, have the cleats recessed into the shoe so the sides and front have plenty of grip to ride...

    There are so many versions of "hybrid" that I almost wish someone would come up with another description, especially to help new buyers understand. Your Motobecane is totally different from my new CX3. Mine has a front suspension, that you can lock out for the road. The tires are made to...

    Cool. I'm glad that Motobecane is still in business. A far cry different from the old 10 speed road/race bikes from the days they were built in France.:allteeth: Had a couple of those. My first "real" bike was a Schwinn Paramount in 1974. Back then, those bikes were almost $500 bucks, a LOT...

    Any Road/Trail/Leisure Cyclists here?

    I Haven't owned a Motobecane since the late 70's. I was in the military then. I could take a few days of leave, hop a flight on a cargo plane, fly overseas and buy one for about half what a U.S. dealer could buy one for, and have the loadmaster stash it on the plane coming back. Had a couple...

    Don't think of it as being "attached to the bike". Think of it as becoming "one with the bike". A fluid, synchronized unit. However I have proven that it's not very dignified for a 58 year old man becoming "one with the sidewalk", occasionally. Happy riding...:allteeth: J.

    Any Road/Trail/Leisure Cyclists here?

    Yeah, I've thought about a pair of them for riding on muddy trails, and not clipped in. If you have to put a foot down, you stand a better chance of not ending up on your ass when your foot shoots out from under you. Then they have the recessed clips for riding down a deep dirt road, where the...
