Last week, the unthinkable happened at a critical mass event in Porto Alegre, Brazil. A car came from behind the bikers, and without warning, proceeded to accelerate—plowing through dozens of cyclists, crashing through the crowd of over 100 bikes.
My job has slowed down recently so it’s time to catch up a bit on WHBikes! I have a few bike projects to update with, but I first though I would share some bicycle related photos over the past few months. I hope my readers are also getting out there and getting some riding in.
Baileyworks Citizen Pack Large.
After having owned the Baileyworks Citizen Pack for almost 6 months now, I thought I would write a more in-depth review of how I liked this bag while riding or just using it on a day-to-day basis on foot.
Jonathan's Velo Orange
Jonathan’s primary use for his Polyvalent was for an-all around city bike. He wanted it to handle all the hills of San Francisco and also be able to ride it out to the North Bay on the weekends. We decided not to go with any super nice parts on the build as he also locks the bike outside overnight.
Velo Orange Polyvalent downtube.
An acquintance, Jonathan, recently asked me to build him a city bike that could carry a front load. I ended up throwing out a few options for him including a Surly Crosscheck, Velo Orange Polyvalent and a Kogswell PR. While I haven’t had much experience with the latter two options, Jonathan chose the Polyvalent due to the convenience of acquiring all the parts all in one place and all at once.
The clamp section is grooved as to better wrap around a bar.
My friend, Nate, recently let me borrow this Pedco camera mount so I thought I would write a little bit of a descriptive review for it in case any of you out there were interested in a product like this. I would recommend it.
Yes, that is a zip-tie.
A college friend and bicyclist friend of mine, Jie, asked me to perform a little bit of TLC to his 1990′s De Rosa Nuovo Classico. This is one beautiful bicycle and upon first inspection, I could already tell that it needed a lot of care.
