CHASING RICKSHAWS and CHECKING OUT THE CYCLING CULTURE

take a moment and look at the set of images from this book CHASING RICKSHAWS. Part bicycle courier, part taxi cab, part trackbike, all human powered bicycle; that is the RICKSHAW (or Bechak as they are called in Indonesia)
The bicycle is a work of art. In Denmark this company, Biomega, views the bicycle as art and presents it this way. Here is a beautifully simple custom bike company, Ant Bikes.

and of course some must visit sites for any cyclist who likes to geek out about their bikes....

Rivendell
Sheldon Brown
Sheldon Brown's Daughter Then & Sheldon Brown's Daughter Now

okay....the Tova stuff is headed in a different direction

Here are some good ideas from Keith Bontrager
Here is some history, Gary Fisher

Although I am a mountainbiker and I view much of the roadies as a bunch of pansies, but here is some stuff on LANCE

and of course....Eddy Merckx
please check out EDDY!
the cycling films of his racing are EPIC
pure beauty, almost enough for me to lift the pansy label off the roadies
but I can not do that
