Update: top is more maroon than pictured, but it still works tonally with my hair.

Witch Legs

Keeping with the cycling mission, my last pair of Ground Effect bike knicks have lasted forever and are fabulous. It’s time to get another pair:

Gummi Bike

My adorable retro panniers have disintegrated (stupid trendy canvas), so I’m after something a bit more robust.

These aren’t as vintage adorable, but they are pretty goth and the price is right:

Still riding

I still ride my bike, but styling outfits around it is less of a priority now as I also get the bus to work half the time. Which is why I probably haven’t done a bike related post for a while.

It’s frequently dark on my ride home from work, and I’ve been in the market for some new lights for a while. These Knog Blinders are USB rechargeable, which is immensely appealing.

I’m a long time fan of Microcosm Publishing, producers of crazy ‘zines, anthologies and pro-bike gear. Given that I have the attention span of a YouTube clip, a quick and pithy read is just what I need, and I’m fresh out of ‘zines.

I bought a bargain Zine multipack, and a Dreamwhip and an Endless Summer anthology.

US$45.00 for the zine pack

Ordered 18.6.11

I have just realised with horror that last time I ordered from them I had to pick it up at the *shudder* Post Office :(

I have a new bike! I didn’t buy it online though. Her name is Minty and she looks something like this:

She needed some gorgeous retro styled panniers to match her cute look:

She already has my wicker basket on the front, and I think this setup will work nicely. I also bought her a new back flashie and a saddle to take when we do our cycle tour of Wales.

Cost:

$49.00 x2 for the panniers

$9.95 for the flashie

Basket No. 2

So, I damaged my last basket by carrying too much heavy tequila in it, and it actually fell to pieces today on the way to work. There is a new updated version in plastic coated wicker, and I hope it will be robust enough to withstand more liquor than the last one.
