Meet The Bandit (Huffy Bandit)

(7 posts)

  1. I decided to do something a little different today.

    This 20 inch Huffy Bandit had been waiting for some road miles for a couple of years now.

    Today I put about five highway miles, and a few road miles on it.

    Listing a few locations I visited today just for the sake of my own memory.

    * Family Dollar
    * City Park
    * Tabernacle
    * Playground

    This little bike still makes a decent little commuter for short distances.

  2. I took a little spin on the Bandit today.

    Nothing to really write about, but I did pull a few bunny hops...
    Small bunny hops, that is...
    I didn't want to damage the old Huffy chrome wheels.

    Now I need a set of chrome wheels to jump with... lol.
    but really I do need a set to jump with.

  3. I put the biggest part of an hour into riding the bandit over a few local parking lots tonight.

    Trying to decide if I want to put some road miles on the Rock It tonight.
    It's short crank is making me think twice though..

  4. Put ~3 miles or so on the Bandit sometime between 11:pm and 1:am, but don't really recall exact times or how many rests.

    The miles are there (if not more) and I might put a couple more miles on the old Bandit between now and daylight.

  5. The opening of this thread says it was started 2 weeks ago.
    Today is June 09, 2018 (at least for a few more minutes...)
    Thread was actually started May 20,2017.

    To the point.

    Put a couple or few miles (South) on the Bandit tonight.
    Might put a mile or two on it in the AM.. planned, but not sure.

    It's a Saturday night / Sunday morning, so nothing is for certain when it comes to riding after dark.

  6. Continuing...
    It is now 1:00 AM and I can only account for 3 miles.

    Yes I left out a little after Midnight...
    I sit in the intersection a minute as usual...
    Oh Yeah! -- I rode a church parking lot for a while.
    That's where the time lapse is at.

    I rode all the way to the only open store to discover that I didn't bring a check-card along... lol.

    Still got my 3 miles though... and on a 20 inch!
    A single speed 20 inch.
    Wonder what that's like in 10 speed miles?

    3 miles on a 20 inch bike has to at least be the equivalent of 10000 steps?... surely! (except it probably isn't) sigh!

  7. It's 5:30 PM

    Google maps tells me that I rode rode 4 miles today.
    I had thought the circle past the factories and back int0 town to be more like 2 miles... It's double... evidently.

    I got caught in the rain for a little while and tried to shelter under the overhang of a small utility building, but the overhang wasn't enough.

    I should have taken cover under a nearby bridge.

    I have a lot of video shot from this bike, but most of it is too shaky to put online.
