We’re Looking for a Non-Pricey Step-through Bike

We’re Looking for a Non-Pricey Step-through Bike

Mr. Ding and I are on a quest to buy a steel frame, step-through bike for a tall rider (5′ 10). In this case it’s for a new rider who’s not going to ride it everyday and everywhere – she’s going to ride around the residential area of Oak Park on short family rides.  Having […]

A New and Improved Dutch Bike Reference Page

Just letting everyone know that I spent some time over the weekend updating the Dutch Bikes page on this blog.  Since I started this blog last year, I’ve met a lot of other bike bloggers who write about Dutch bikes (which I wrote about in an earlier post) and learned a little more about the bikes […]
