My new picnica

Just thought I'd share some pics of the newest member of the fleet. A lovely old Bridgestone Picnica picked up at the local bike swap for $50.








Needs a longer seatpost, but other than that, it's working splendidly. I have confirmed that the front basket holds four bottles of wine perfectly.

Now there's a specification for bicycle luggage that's easy to understand. I always have trouble picturing cubic inches or litres.

Awesome - I love vintage folders. Looks like it would split in half if I rode it.
