    Hard-working bikes in Peru (utility bike pics)

    Hi,

    I'm a BF regular but don't normally post in utility cycling. However, I thought folks here might be interested in some photos of day-to-day bike use in Peru, which I posted over in the 50+ forum.

    Enough with lightweight bikes: here are the hard-working bikes of Peru (bike pics)


    I know the web is awash with photos showing bikes laden with huge loads...I saw a few bikes carrying crazy amounts of stuff in Peru, but wasn't able to get good pics of those examples...So mainly, these are just photos showing the every day working bikes of Peru.

    Thanks for allowing me to visit this sub-forum; sorry for the double post but didn't know of folks who hang out here make it over to the Old Folks home.

    BB

    Yep, just goes to prove that bicycle can take a lick'n and still keep on tick'n.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
