Under what category or type of bicycle would you put this bicycle?

A High Wheeler, minivelo, utility or novelty type. I use this bicycle for errands to the groceries and visiting friends around the block.

My 1st tandem, a Schwin Tango. Gave up 3 of my Japanese commuter bicycles. First accessory added was a Shimano Dynamo Brake Hub. The fenders were changed to chrome finish but I will restore the original fenders after a repaint.

I had the fenders removed for under coating. The original fenders are still under repainting process. So far had the bottom brackets over hauled for greasing. The tandem is in tip top condition at the moment. I will be sourcing for a basket, carrier and LED headlights. My son is excited to ride the tandem.

I accidentally found this set of 22 x 1 3/4 inner tubes in one of the surplus store. A National Panaracer inner tubes which I needed for my utility bicycle which is a rare size.

Just came from a bicycle show ( Robinsons Town Mall Malabon City) where they held their 1st Bicycle Show. I entered my Schwinn Tango Tandem and my Scorcher High Wheeler and both won in their respective categories.













Check my FB Serafin Nepomuceno for pictures of the show.

Bridgestone Hello Kitty

Scheduled for modifications is my Bridgestone Hello Kitty. A size 26 frame set.
Of the original bicycle what would be left is the frame and pork.
Installation of stainless steel parts for less maintenance is a priority.

Waica Stainless Rims

Last replacement on the wheels. I dismantled a stainless steel rim from my Bridgestone Como, a 22 x 1.75 to replace the rear alloy rims of my Waica. I have to install back the original allloy rims of the Bridgestone.

Cannodale MTB

After a long time in my bodega I gave my Cannondale a general wash. I brought it to a car wash and here it is now.

Long but really interesting looking thread. I don't know much about the Philippine bicycle culture, other than they've got an active triathlon scene. Every time I've visited, I've seen more motorcycles and scooters than bikes.

I did read though that there was supposed to be a bike lane experiment on the EDSA (major traffic artery) on June 28 this year, in which half the lanes were to be restricted to pedestrians and cyclists, but that experiment never happened.
