A new twist on riding light...is that light on your top tube made specifically for that purpose? Good idea.

It's general purpose bike accent light many to be strapped anywhere on the frame. One some of my bikes I use several of them in color combos just for the look.

They're available in many different colors.

Lighting is super important, especially at this time of the year as the daylight hours get shorter, cloudy skies so no moonlight and more precipitation! On the news this morning in my city, 2 people (pedestrian and cyclist I believe) were killed yesterday, one being a teenage girl leaving school.
Stay safe!!!!

Black and white is the greatest equalizer. Itís all about composition design and proportions. As honest as it gets.

DQ Rider,
I love the arts, and bicycles is one of the most beautiful things created by mankind. Simple and with one function.

Now I donít know whether to take your reply as a compliment or take as sacrcasm😆 so Iíll be with the better of the two. No Fine Fine Art School for me, but I have always been a maker. From lapdiary, to wood working combining the style of American, Danish and Japanese mid century modern, to steel sculpture only for myself and friends.

Dabbled in vintage BMW, Alfa and Porsche restoration and period modifications.

Iíve just started taking photos.

My daughter on the other hand, is a Senior at Otis College of Art and Design

A couple of her pieces





One of my other types of work.

That was a sincere compliment. I try not to waste everyone's time with sarcasm.

Where did you find that incredible building? Was that at the Midtown Greenway trailhead on West River Road? I haven't been down there in a long time.

Thanks! Yes, it's right on the Midtown Greenway, about 1/2 mile west of West River Road.
