LOL. Try getting a HTC Desire :D it's got a better screen, twice the resolution I think.

Finally, a picture of my Orca - I have only been riding it since March :D

Image

I either sport the Carradice Carradura rack pack as shown, or a LHS pannier for larger loads.

It has SRAM dual Drive 3x9 gears which seem to work just fine, Shimano M324 pedals which do what they say on the tin and it is generally a joy to ride (and fall off as well - though I haven't been doing that much lately)

So far my average speed is 16mph for the commute - and I am getting progressively less sweaty as the days go by.

My Challenge Mistral waiting patiently for me to come out of the boulangerie - notice the lid extension on the rack pack is up, that's to accommodate the croissants aux amandes :D

And here's another, at the canal bridge at Moissac, the bike's fully laden, including camping gear for my three week trip, well, two panniers and a rack pack is as fully laden as I need.

I had a GH but had to sell. I wish I could get another but nobody seems to be selling.

May only be urban myth, but in the early days of motoring, didn't the only two cars in Texas collide at a crossroads?
