Red Hot Rod: Giant Quasar, circa 1980s. I looove my new bike! Vintage. Red and shiny. 10-speed (who needs more?). Notice the well-preserved decals.
Finally got the real deal. No more Wallmart/Target clunkers, and none of those slick carbon fiber or alloy gizmos either. You can’t see the spot welds on this baby. Very old-school!
