Affordable, cool, and cheap city bikes

Just spotted the “affordable, cool, and cheap city bikes” in Fall Colors from importer J&O. They’re also available from Dutch Bike Seattle, and at this rate, wherever fine bikes are sold.

For another flavor of Dutch Bikes, Seattle Bike Supply has Batavus in stock now and they’re shipping to their dealers after a delay.

Start kids off right!

Mercer, Wisconsin is trying to get their kids to school - by bike. I remember riding to school a couple times a year, but never made much of a habit of it. It’s a great opportunity to open kids up to the sport and better yet - to a healthy lifestyle. Anything we can do to help pull them away from the XBox or PS3 is good by me.

Bike or Walk for a safer Stone Way

sw_sign_websm.jpg Tomorrow evening, join Seattle Likes Bikes, FeetFirst and PedInRoads for another event protesting the elimination of an uphill bike lane on Stone Way North. Meetup at Gasworks @ 5:00 pm, ride from 5:30 - 6:30.

In the bike shop: Stem Welder

He’s now welding titanium frames for Davidson and I bet has lots of industry stories.

a dude named Marcus

timbuk_marcus.jpg Back I think in 97 or 98, I bought a tri-color messenger bag from Alki Bike in West Seattle from a dude named Marcus. The bag was a shop sample, I got a bro-deal on it, and more importantly started a long-term friendship with Marcus. He wrenched my bike for years and also drank lots of beer with me. I rode with that bag just last week and today is Marcus’ birthday.

Tonight at Beveridge Place, we’ll drink with beers from Schooner Exact, his craft brewery and celebrate.
