AMANDA AND HER LITESPEED

Zlog: Is it just me or does it seem like every bike from The Fix Fix Fix rides a conversion. I wanna see track dropouts!

Beautiful Bicycle: Lauren’s Tokyo Fixed Bikes Dream Machine Cargo

IMG_6724.JPG

Prolly: When I said back in February that the Tokyo Fixed Bikes Dream Machine Cargo would make a perfect girlfriend bike, Lauren agreed with me. So when the bikes got to Tokyo Fixed Gear, I picked her up a frameset. It came in the mail a little while back, but I never got the chance to shoot photos of it. She’s planning to build it up with mostly Velo Orange parts, so expect a bit of classiness!

Check out more photos of the Tokyo Fixed Bikes Dream Machine Cargo frameset below!

Thanks to Max and the Tokyo Fixed Gear crew for making this happen. Once the parts get ordered and it gets built up, I’ll share some photos with you guys.

eBay Gem: Cinelli Laser Track Frame

Prolly: People always freak out about the Cinelli Laser track frames and with only a day under its belt, this auction has breached the $2,300 mark. Youch! Check out more details here at the eBay page. That frame looks a little beaten up to get that much money but I guess people are thinking respray.

Fyxomatosis: The Great(est) Victorian Bike Ride 2011 – Day 6

Prolly: Andy is a true cyclist. Someone who harbors the notion of “bicycle culture” with ease. His yearly Great(est) Victorial Bike Ride supplies his readers with glimpses into what it takes to be a one-man cyclo-tourist. He rides without support and through some of the most beautiful terrain southern Australia has to offer. His last day took him on a 9 hour long trek as he covered 124 miles and climbed 16,873 feet. Check out his inspiring photo set and all the details here at FYXO!

Grass roots blogging at its finest. Andy, I gotta come with you the next time you do this.

Prolly: Chari just posted photos of Wilis’ new Landshark pursuit track bike. When he told me he got this (which matches his tandem), I didn’t think it’d be so over the top. Pretty bad ass huh? Check out more at the Chari blog!

Steadfast: Yamarco and Chang-ryu in Sapporo City

 

Steadfast put together a video of Yamarco and Chang-ryu riding through Sapporo City. I love these “flashback” edits. Straight outta the early 2000’s.
