This one's for you, Nick:

Shamelessly ripped photo from the Copenhagenize Blog

Here are some very stylish long-john type bakfietsen: Larry v. Harry

Here is a socialist cycling site: Fahrradsozialismus.

It has a nice comparison of "typical cyclists" and Sentai (Japanese for super heros, aka Power Rangers). This reminds me of a crude but brilliant animated piece from a few years back with the three alien bicyclists riding through the city. Now I can't find it, a little help?

Some nice looking practical bikes: Paul Frank bikes.

Finally, dekochari. This is a word for which I have been looking.

For practical advice on cycle repairs, why not visit www.smbbearings.com/BB_BRGS.htm for a great article about replacing your bike's bottom bracket bearings, the photos are a real help too.
To help you get a better understanding of bearings & their performance in bikes, check out www.smbbearings.com/SMBtechdata.htm for loads of technical information & help on bearings.
