    Night ride in Yokohama recently.

    The rear brakes had been grabbing due to a small blip on the rim. Repositioning the pads helped somewhat for a while but noticed the grabbing again on my commute today.

    I think a 16" 305 replacement wheel won`t be easy to find - though I really love the bike, I`m debating whether or not I should start putting a lot of money into repairs and parts for a nearly 5 year old folder. Might be time for a new bike.

    Great night pic!!

    You should take the rim to a bike shop... they might be able to fix it.

    Not much out there that's going to be as light as your SL,at least not without dropping some coin. Def think it would be worth it to replace a rim.

    Here in Northern England, autumn is creeping up on us and the leaves are starting to change. Spotted this Rowan tree in full berry when I was out for a ride yesterday. Local folk-lore states that trees in full berry means we are in for a long hard winter. There's something to look forward to!

    It's the attachment for my Topeak Cabriolet Basket that carried my knitting. So far, it's working great but I had to duck tape the bars for it to fit properly.

    Ahh..I like the looks of that basket. Looks much more refined than the Bell basket I've been using.

    Got my Origami Cricket yesterday!! Only had a chance to get it out for a 2.5 mile ride and it was a very nice ride. Will be putting some more miles on it very soon.

    So far I've added a handlebar mount for my Samsung Galaxy Note II, water bottle cage, Mirrycle mirror and an Avenir bag under the seat.

    A couple of nighttime pictures.

    I will be adding some lights and changing out the pedals to something stronger.

    I like this thread, so this is my contribution :




    Not really in the wild, just off-road.

    In the trunk, a folding bike, an inflatable Stand Up Paddle, and Let's Go !

    Toured Kyoto in style this weekend on a Birdy!

    The rental shops in Kyoto offer a great selection of rides at reasonable prices. I saw some people riding rental Cannondale Hooligans, Bromptons and other minvelos.
