I would absolutely fall off my bike or drive into a wall if that girl rode past me on the her bike.
Go pink!

A Birdy with a Chris King headset, no less! WOW. And it's the same RED one I want on my BF NWT to match my RED Salsa seat post clamp.

Unfortunately, it's a little hard to justify replacing a SILVER Chris King with a RED one.

Both the bikes and the girls are within the levels of acceptability, but I wouldn't call them amazing

But then, again, that's just me.

Sorry to bump an old thread. What I find charming about those pics is seeing so many people on folders! Hopefully this is a normal random day (somewhere in Japan?) rather than some kind of special meeting for people with folders?

I have to admit, the pink Birdy evoked severe consumer fetishism.

I love how pictures of Japan always make it look so clean - cleaner even than maybe Austria or Switzerland. It looks like Playmobil-land and for that I salute!
I live in a smelly dirty medieval City called London.

Did you guys see farther in on the site where she strips down?

I'm talking about the birdy, of course.

Click on "next" or "previous" at the bottom right of the webpage Pink Birdy above for a lot more.

Is there a meaning to holding up two fingers in her culture (I am not sure whether it is Chinese, Korean, Japanese...etc....), she and her friends seem to do it quite a bit.

Thanks! I never saw the other pics.

I know that in dragonball / dragonball z (japanese anime) they are very fond of the 2 finger sign, in the english dub they usually say "victory" along with it.

It seems to me that the pics got shot in downtown Taipei. Maybe that SOGO is the SOGO 101? Anybody can recognize it?
