cfsmtb management is obviously quite busy, so here’s some recent pix we took of the Dreams on Wheels Exhibition at Fred Square. If you wait around a bit, no doubt there’s lots of other bicycle-themed snapshots in this display for your viewing pleasure.
I want a New Toy, oh ay oh, nothing too demanding. Ta.
Beer Can Hill has a new resident – Kitten of Doom. Isn’t she fugging gorgeous! KoD is the ultimate set-and-forget commuter, practically the only thing I’ll have to do now is ride the ruddy thing to bed the disc brakes in. And then possibly adjust/replace the head stem. And then decide if 36T is fine … and then decide whether to replace it with 44T … and then have to frig around with the chain line … but like most projects it’s ongoing process of tweaking until optimum results and/or satisfaction is obtained.
The 15′ frame is a Felt MTB of indeterminate gender, the Kona Project 2 forks were pilfered from The Blokes Kona Unit

But no, it’s true, via the ever-creative folk from World of Instructables comes the Cart Bike.
Combine a derelict shopping cart with a bicycle for a ride with ample cargo capacity.
This is a nice way to save a shopping cart and a bike that might otherwise end up in a landfill. It is quite the head turner but not a good corner turner.
IMHO it looks more like a Poor Mans BakFiet
that pivots like a brick. And Bill, if you’re reading this, this maybe another project we may need to discuss. Or not.
