We uploaded a photo of Calfee’s bamboo bike yesterday and it was featured in Velonews last month.


Bettie Big Dummy

That’s Bettie loaded up with a Big Dummy Frameset for transport to the bike shop – the light filtered in through the garage windows from a bright Spring day


Bringing Bettie Back

With Spring, warmer temperatures, and less rain, it’s time to bring Bettie back and we’re rev’ing her to 2.0. Just in time for the project, a Big Dummy was spotted in West Seattle.

I started thinking about an updated Bettie in this post and thought our readers probably have some thoughts on building another longtail, sport-utility, cargo bike. We’re building Bettie with a Big Dummy, transferring over most of the parts and the purpose of the project is to simplify it down – make Bettie easier to use, more friendly, and significantly less whippy.

How would you build up Bettie 2.0?


Photos and Linkage

Subscribers to our feed will notice we’re splicing in our photostream and bookmarks. That’s bonus hugganess and the bookmarks will contain more random bike-related links that we may not post direclty on, like this totally NSFW bitch-cruiser. Note that next week we’re in Shanghai and blogging it all up with lots of photos and links coming.

Vernal Equinox 2008 RideCivil report

March_08_RideCivil-2What a great spring ride. We had a nice intimate crowd (less than 20, more than 3 although pretty close to that number) and fantastic weather. We spent just a small amount of time in downtown (route here) , voting instead to head up towards Queen Anne, Eastlake and then under/along I-5 back through to S. Lake Union. We stopped off at the Cafe Venus/Mars Bar for a bit of food and some beer before heading our respective ways.

My favorite part of the ride was the smell of spring in the air, shocking lack of rain, and how much sun we all got. I’m still tan from it!

We’ll resume our normal 2nd Friday schedule for next month’s April RideCivil. Check back here for details. Photos from the ride at the Bikehugger Urban group.
