Well, @jefnvk is a tough act to follow. I don't get around nearly as much as that anymore.

Here's a new set of handlebars over which you see my native habitat of Saint Paul, MN. The bike in question was a 1981 Fuji Royale 12-speed roadbike, which I have roadsterized by swapping out the derailleur for an old Sturmey-Archer AW 3-speed hub and a single chainring up front. It makes for a nice, comfy, simple Toshi Baiku (City Bike, in Japanese).



It has a pair of compound-curve bamboo fenders from Woody's , a nice Gye's leather saddle, and an alloy chainguard from Velo Orange. So of course I have to include a shot of that here as well:



What a beautiful day for a ride...

You did just fine, @DQRider! Pro tip: it helps if you have a GoPro running or a girlfriend with a cute bottom in front of you

Love the old bike, BTW! Have an old Trek 400 I want to do something similar to that upright city conversion with! Those bamboo fenders are killer

Hey all, hope y'all have been well . So I finally got off my butt and went up to the singletrack in the mountain. I forget how fun it is up there. I saw a coyote!

Does this angle make my seat look big?

And one with the little bike. This may not seem like anything, but to a flatlander it's awesome.

Toshi Baiku (Japanese City Bike) is finished. I've added this bamboo basket to go with the fenders, and to make the bike useful for carrying stuff. This started out as a Sunlite Quick Release basket, with plastic brackets that went "BANG!" and "RATTLE!" every time you hit any kind of bump. Since I don't see the need to remove the basket from the bike except for certain maintenance chores, I got rid of the plastic and designed this stainless steel and rubber shock-mount instead.



The idea came from the camera mounts on the RF-4B Recon Phantom I worked on in the Marines during the 1980s. I have sandwiched rubber bushings between stainless fender washers on a long bolt, and attached them to a couple of handlebar-mount water bottle brackets. Then I added a piece of 1/8 inch laminate to the inside of the basket for reinforcement. Works like a charm, and is a much cleaner look than the plastic QR setup. But most important: it is silent. Here's a shot from the front:

Be careful. I love them, I used to go a lot to the everglades in FL and see them very close, also canoeing in Orlando right next to them until I saw how high they jump when they are hungry and want to reach something to eat it. Scary

Forgot this one from last time. Heading back downhill to go home.


A neighborhood ride. There was a small fire in the mountain and the sun rays caught the smoke pretty neat.


Some months ago, when the heat wasn't quite as bad yet.
