I live in Montreal and I speak french... So What?

"What a catchy title!" -Celine Dion


Hi everyone,

Well... How am I suppose to introduce myself...

I was living in a "you need a car to go somewhere" city then I moved to Montreal and (re)discovered the joys of riding a bike. I now have 5 bicycles... and no car. I work at the National Library and ride to work, to the restaurants, to bars, to my hometown, everywhere all the time.

Let me introduce you to my bicycles:
  • My "almost everyday" bicycle : Pinlk and white Fiori Modena. Shimano Exage. Not a wonderfull bike, but I really LOVE it.
  • My "rainy days" bicycle : RollsWell single speed. I call it my Cookie Monster.
  • My sundays bike : Turbo Fairy, a two seats bicycle that I brought back from Thailand.
  • My winter bike : Called Black Stallion, this is a black Peugeot frame with coaster 700 wheel.
  • My "working on" bicycle : A .85 Bianchi Stelvio that I will ride pretty soon. (Thanks to Bianchigirll, I now know what model it is)

Welcome to BF, Lea_Kim. Sounds like you have a good collection there. Have any pics of your bikes and Montreal?

Ok... The temperature is not so good here (thunderstorms) so since it's not possible to take good pictures of my bikes inside, it'll have to wait.

For now, a bad picture of my bike from Thailand and two videos, one with my Cookie Monster and the other one in a snowfall with my black stalion. We can't really see them, but WTHeck.

What the heck were you eating in that first video

And thank you for the video with the snow. Makes me remember how glad I am to be living in Tampa, FL. now and not Chicago.

Chicago is a tropical paradise to me! ;-) so you can imagine how happy I would be in Florida!

But it's not just few inches of snow that will stop me riding a bike! I'll shoot more winter bike videos in few weeks.

Oh... and I was trying to eat algae, but it's not very good...

Welcome, you need to visit Florida before you ever move there, in the summer you take showers to wash the stink off, otherwise your always wet from sweat.

Thanks everyone!

Sgt Mac, I went to Florida as a kid (guess where!... Yhea...) but honestly, I need my 6 foots of snow every year. I would miss it too much.

catmandew52, écrire en français n'est pas facile alors bravo pour avoir trouvé l'accent aigu sur votre clavier! Or is it Google translate? ;-)
