Very cool. What is she running for?

I didn't care for President Bush, but I did like the fact that he's an avid cyclist.

Next week, I'm going to take a photo-op bike ride with the deputy mayor of my town and the "village president" of the neighboring town.



And please, let's not discuss politics.

Gz Spirit Bicycle

I just got this yesterday afternoon. The sticker says Gz Spirit Bicycle, but I can't find it in the web.
It's size 18" and just in case you're familiar with this model kindly reply. Will be looking for hop-up accessories to give it a new look.

Ang chroming ay depende sa size at quality ng trabaho. Chrome Dazzler ay mahusay pero mataas ang price. Try other companies in the business.

Emom Mamachari

Got this mamachari without the baby carrier. Front wheel is 22 x 1 3/8 and rear is 26".
I'll try to fit my reserve carrier and see how it fits. Will also post images after the installation.

hello mang boy and all,
i would like to share my experience with the wanda white wall tire 27"x1-3/8". I weigh 215lbs so i figure it is a good test of any bike tire. I have been using these wanda for around 3 months. They have performed well. These are china made i think. I am satisfied. I bought it in malabon.

Kind regards

It is not an original Schwinn stock MTB. I just traded one of my commuter bicycle with an alloy frame (Schwinn). I dismantled my Peugeot cruiser and instead replaced it with the alloy frame. So the components are not Schwinn stock parts.

Cat Eye

Since Cat Eye bicycle accessories are found on most bicycles, it might be of interest the variety of accessories I had installed on my bicycles.

Reflectors

Spoke Reflector



Fender Reflectors





Frame Mounted


Rear Tail Lights

Trek is available here. The basic cruiser would cost 12K. Check out Greenhills bike shop.
