That is a good question. I honestly never had a water bottle in that bottle holder. I’ll try to check this weekend.

Bridgestone 161 "Picnica"

Sold it for $240 . No more folders for me ! They are too hard to sell. I thought a new bike from 1968, still in the paper wrap would bring twice that. It now lives in San Francisco.

ROG Pony

I wanted a cheap beater to take to the beach, use as a loaner and/or just keep in trunk. So I picked up a sad ROG Pony. It needed tires, seat, and grease. And love.

Put on some leftover Kenda Kwest 65lb tires, wald front rack and a seat. Still needs a fender.

We have had a couple warm days and I have been pleasantly surprised riding this around. It's flexible (I'm 250lbs), is lighter than MIFA or Raleigh, folds standard size and gear inches are about perfect for me, guessing 65 gear inches(?).

It has coaster brakes, so it'll be the perfect bike to nonchalantly cruise around with a coffee and cell phone.

Certainly a keeper.

Birdy again!

Well, new to the forum, and just picked up my second Birdy. I sold the first 7 years ago because of a change in circumstances and regretted it ever since.(Early 7sp Red). So time has moved on, and yesterday I picked up my new ride, a later, prob around early 2000's 8spd Red. Excellent condition, it comes with mudguards which is great for what I'll be using it for.

Manual

I've trawled about and not had any luck finding a manual online for the earlier Birdys, anyone point me in the right direction?

Picked up two Italian Sicur Brevettato's. $40 total. Flat tires, looking rough. I buy 'em. Put air in tires(originals on green one), sprayed some oil. They ride great. They already got new owners. So, I'll call them gone. BTW, this is what the "cool" kids on campus are riding.

Nice stuff. What's the little one? What's that little tab on the Tern fork? Welcome to the forum, thanks for pictures.
