    Hope everyone here is doing well!

    Got a new ride. 1992 Bridgestone XO-3. All original except for the chain which I snapped & replaced 2 days ago, and the tires/tubes. Quite a downgrade from what Im used to, but at least its still red :). Come to think of it, the last 2 rides i had were red as well.

    This sat in my parents garage for years and nobody used it. Apparently a bridgestone is a "bike snob's" bike. I didnt know this until receiving the bike.

    This is how you have to lock up your bike in nyc. Both wheels, the seat, and the frame. Also its a good idea to bring it inside at night.

    Very nice, as for locking it up I see that NYC has its own chain as well :)

    I was gonna buy that one but its not long enough to do both wheels and the frame.

    Since I have quick release hubs, i need something to prevent them from being removed while im at work.

    Riding to work isnt so bad :). Faster and cheaper than the subway.. just much more dangerous.
