Well, all my pictures are in hard copy, and I cannot find any on the interwebby thang.

I've got an ugly battle-axe Guerciotti circa 1979 or 1980. Patched-up champagne in color with yellow lettering. Noone would ever want to steal this thing, but it's tough as a nuclear submarine. Been in three wrecks that I know of; two of which involved me.

I once had to bend the derailleur fork to accept a new one (Suntour Superbe Pro) after I ripped mine off putting that thing down in a turn. Previously, I was cut off by a bunch of Vermont hicks while leading a paceline (damn copper-colored 1974 Novas)  Wink Did more damage to the bike than I did to me. Learn how to fall...Broke my toe kicking the guardrail and screaming "how can you be so fucking stupid?" I thought that would be better than beating the driver over the head with my hand pump, as I had a helmet on and she didn't. :p

Oh the memories...nowadays I drink scotch and smoke ciggies and remember how much fun it was.

In this day and age making officers use a bike without full suspension is grounds for a grievance.  Angry

Haven't been out on it for a few months now, but I'm looking forwards to some good rides over the summer! My bike is a 2005 Saracen AWOL, full suspension which is good for your bum, but not so good for acceleration.



This picture was taken on top of the highest point in Cornwall, after a good ride across Bodmin Moor to reach it. So far it's done about 1000 miles in the saddle, both in the UK and Spain.

I NEVER want to ride a bike again. Just came back from a 4 day cycling journey across Bali, Indonesia. It was terrible hilly and we had to do 200km.

Damnit I hate bikes now.

As much as I do agree from a comfort point of view, there are times for the sake of maneuvering I wish I didn't even have the front suspension, it does save your arms some going down stairs and whatnot but no matter how tight i make it, it feels likes its trying to flip me after landing a jump or coming off a curb at high speeds.

I can't think of any police bikes I have seen with a rear suspension, Its just compromising too much in the way of capabilities for comfort. Granted, in the hands of a truly capable rider it wouldn't make a difference, but it takes years to reach that level.. After many months I am just getting to where I can go tearing down steps without stopping to look at them first.

Saying that means someone will certainly post a picture of a police bike, with a full suspension that is actually in service somewhere.

911, where is your emergency?
25 Airfoilsguy : I am not sure of other bikes but on mine you can lock both the front and rear shocks if you so chose.
26 CaptOveur : Smith and Wesson's aren't that fancy, its a miracle we even get the silent hub, rapid fire shifters, and front disc brake... Most police departments
27 Airfoilsguy : When did they start making bikes?
28 Post contains images Leezyjet : Here's mine :- 2004 Scott Yecora. This bike cost brand new, the same as what my first ever mountain bike cost in the late 80's (that was a Saracen Tuf
29 2H4 : The problem isn't that the bike has front and rear suspension. The problem is that the suspension isn't set up (or capable of being set up) for you.
30 Post contains images Jamesbuk : Its basically the same as that, my bike is A 2006 Gary Fisher Marlin in Blue and silver Front and rear disk brakes Front adjustble strength suspensio
31 CaptOveur : They don't, but they stick their names on something someone else probably couldn't sell. They should have stuck to guns Exactly... This strategy seem
