Endless Bicycles

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to own a variety of bicycles. Some have remained for quite some time, while others have been mere blips on the radar. I have found that the ones making it longer were more versatile (providing the ability to use them in various circumstances), and/or they were simply great at the specific task for which the bike was intended.  A few still remain as part of the bike fold, but most have moved on to their next owner.

For those who may be curious, my currently built and ridden bikes include:
Rivendell Sam Hillborne
Velo Orange Campeur
Box Dog Bikes Pelican
Surly Wednesday
Rivendell Saluki

A list of the bikes owned at various points in time can be found below, along with pictures.

Rivendell Betty Foy
Rivendell A. Homer Hilsen - Like many bikes in our home, it went through many versions
Surly Cross-Check - My Easter Basket colored love
Soma Buena Vista - It did get built up (and was quite beautiful), but was so small it couldn't be properly ridden by even the wee folks in our home - Would love to have this again someday in the proper size.
Velo Orange Campeur - Purchased as a means to test out my interest in touring, and it turned into quite a bike for multiple purposes.
Box Dog Bikes Pelican - This one came in as a comfortable, long-distance bicycle and became my primary road(ish) bicycle.
