oyamus eastvillagus eastvillagus



Pictured herein is the illusive oyamus eastvillagus eastvillagus. This rare beast of Taiwanese origins appears to be curled up sleeping within the confines of a cold human office cubicle. No doubt its master is not far off prospecting for hard earned wages. The keen-eyed wild foldie enthusiast may find of interest the classic office worker surroundings in which the creature has found comfort and slumber.



In this rare private photograph taken by its master, fortuitously revealed to the public for the greater good, the very same aforementioned oyamus eastvillagus eastvillagus is portrayed unfurled and resting with its kick stand extended. The beast appears to be primed for action with its bright lights glowing, in clear anticipation of fleeing the predator and pouncing on prey as they are encountered.

Brompton flair

I finally decided on the way to personalize my Brompton! The location and length of the decal is perfect (bottom of rear triangle)! Doesn't stand out too much, yet it's still visible. Success!

When the carrymeobscuris is unable to camaflogue itself and is confronted or startled it will open up and stand sideways in an attempt to make itself appear larger... if this display is successful the carrymeobscuris will then dart away

and as a last resort, the carrymeobscuris has been known to seek the protection of larger members of the bicycle kingdom.

Here's my Swift yesterday on the MCT trail in Madison county, Illinois:

A few miles down the trail the weather cleared briefly:

Some neat looking clouds in the distance. Wish I had my good camera instead of my cellphones.

That is a cool looking bike, cme314! Is it new or a revitalized bike? So old-school looking, I love it! Hi to Mississauga, btw! I went to U of T.

Thank you! The bike new to me; I got it in May and didn't need to repair anything. All I did was pump up the tires, add the baskets and the bell :-) The person I bought it from didn't do any repairs either; he thinks the rims might have been replaced at some point as they look new-ish, but everything else is as it was. So much fun to ride!


I went to UofT as well! St. George campus

Took my Brompton on my latest trip. The compact fold
helped in different travelling situations; plane, bus, car.

I was going back and forth in my head deciding which version to use.
The same singer made an English version that's good. The Spanish one
is also nice. But in the end, I decided to use the original Japanese version.

I made a rack for the Bike Friday's to fit inside my FJ Cruiser as well as top mounted bike and kayak racks. Tom

Hey there hamh! I haven't seen you post on here or TheChainlink in a while. ChiTown weather is great for riding these days. I'm usually on my yellow Birdy bike during typical commuter hours in the Loop, usually on the Dearborn bike lane. If you see a guy on a yellow Birdy bike, it's probably me... say hello if you see me around Chicago!

Wakely!! Good to see you here... I didn't know you were a member! Just in case you're wondering I'm Jens... I worked as a mechanic on Saturdays during the summer for Jackie at his Frankfurt St. shop. I saw on Bardstown Road Bicycle Co's FB page that you bought a Brommie... congrats. I just went there a few days ago to order one too.

Two photos from our Bornholm trip. My Brompton in the sand at Dueodde http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dueodde

I bet I am going to regret laying it in the sand, getting sand in the drivetrain..


My Brompton enjoying the beach

Another one (just before the dark) taken on top of the stone part of Rytterknægten http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rytterkn%C3%A6gten


My Brompton enjoying the wiew.

No idea why I decided to carry it up there but I am sure I lost a kilo or two doing it..
