Bike Your Drive!

Did you get yours?

Here I am in the office sportin’ my “Gas Sucks Ride a Bike” threads. Cool huh?

Buy this stuff HERE. C’mon, with all that money you’re saving by riding your bike, you should be able to get at least a few shirts and socks!

I have this affinity for older bikes. Not quite antiques, but at least 15-20 years old. So knowing that info Moe brought over a present for me. Apparently his neighbor was moving out and gave this bike to him.

Check it out, this thing is in mint condition.

It even has a basket!

Falcon Components.

All this beauty needs are new tires and perhaps a new cable set. Other than that, it’s a great bike!

Women Bike Commuters: Shanyn Money

RL asked “Where are the Bike Commuting at“? I got an email from Shanyn Money, here’s her profile in a nutshell:

Shanyn Money

I’m a 47 year old female bicycle commuter in Flagstaff, AZ. I work in Higher Ed in the IT field. Trying to “green up”, save money and get some exercise, along with setting an example for my two teenagers. I commute 11-15 miles round trip 4-5 days per week, and often do the “bike & ride” on the city bus. I started commuting by bike during Bike To Work Week 2 years ago. My latest adventure: taking the Amtrak from Flagstaff to Riverside with my foldable bike on board, and then biking from the train station (see attached)! It can be done, and I am encouraged about the possibilities. I ride a Breezer Uptown 8 U frame commuter bike- love it because of the upright riding position, internally geared hub, and I can ride it in a skirt!

Thank you Shanyn for your email, keep on riding!

I got a sweet Swobo Sanchez frame as a father’s day gift. I picked up the frame from Banning’s Bikes in Fullerton CA.

Banning's Bikes

This was my first purchase experience at Banning’s, and let me say that everyone that works there is super cool. Banning himself helped me out with my frame by basically dismantling a complete bike and selling me the frame and fork at a very competitive price. If you live around the Fullerton Area, check out Banning’s bikes and tell them that you read about them on this site.

Back to the bike… I quickly assembled the bike with rims, crankset, stem, seatpost and chain courtesy of the Raleigh One Way. The saddle came from my F20-R and the flat bars from the KHS Tandem. I’m not so sure about the bars, I’m thinking On-One Mary bars… Anyhow, I will be riding this bike to work as soon as I install a front brake, I’m not that good at riding a brake-less fixed gear bike… yet.
