PDX Bike Exhibit

Traveling a lot leads to airport fatigue and there’s nothing more refreshing than seeing a bike exhibit!

The goal of the exhibit is to offer a glimpse into the role bikes play in the lives of Oregonians “ racing, replacing a car, riding up and down mountains, or just riding for the joy of it. The exhibit is organized by the Port of Portland, Sweetpea Bicycles, the Regional Arts & Culture Council and the Portland Development Commission.

PDX is my fav little airport and many of Webvision’s attendees will see the exhibit as they arrive.

p>I’ve been working on a new toodling-around-town bike since last summer. It’s a used 7005 Al cruiser frame I had powder-coated British racing green with a Nexus 7 (though I’m afraid I’m ultimately going to need an Alfine 8). The idea is to build a comfy, capable and elegant bike for getting groceries, riding to the outdoor cinema, etc. I’ve added a lovely and comfortable Brooks

Best bag for carrying a Mac laptop while riding a bike?

Update (5/7/08): Flickr Group

Based on the popularity of this post, Byron created a bike bags Flickr group. Pop in and upload photos of your setup–if you’re inclined, write a few words describing it and why it works for you (if you don’t have a Flickr account, you can sign up for free to share your photos). Byron loaded the Hugga Bag and has photos of the Raygun coming….

Our friend Jim Coudal needs some advice:

Messenger Bike at Pike Place Market

I walked down to the market to retrieve my girlfriend’s bike, and I saw this messenger bike. Normally I wouldn’t have taken notice of a bike this beaten down, but I just had to appreciate how harsh this machine’s life must have been.

Notice the bludgeoned and dismembered Dura Ace STI still in situ. I’m pretty sure that the derailleurs were just screwed into a set position, and the rear brake was disconnected. The Chris King rear cassette hub might be the last thing salvageable on the bike. The owner didn’t even bother locking the bike at all while he went inside. I salute his cavalier attitude towards equipment maintenance and security… I just hope I am never, ever, ever invited to estimate or enact any repairs to that bike.

Cinco de Mayo - BikeHugger Style

On my commute home I ran into some party-goers. It’s kind of nice for the world to go by a little slower on a bike - you get to see a lot more cool stuff: Tacos!

Note the ‘Hugger kit - out of frame is the Crumpler Bag.
