    Tags: Bike, FGGT, Fixie, Girls on bikes   



    When was the last time I rode a bike?
    I don’t remember.

    Call me superficial, but I was initially captivated by the colourful style of these fixed gear bikes or better known as “fixies”. Whilst browsing through my flickr contact, I stumbled across these pictures of Fixed Gear Girls from Taiwan (FGGT). Basically a group of girls with their bikes who get together for a ride or travel around and have photo shoots. Simple, yet sounds like lots of fun to me! However, knowing me I will probably incur some injury before I reach 100m. My primary concern though is actually the wearing of a helmet… (yes, I am a girl after all.) Apparently a $300 fine if you get caught riding without a helmet? Geez. Nevertheless, FGGB (Brisbane) anyone?

    Wow… tricky!

      Wow, they look badass. I think my town has a fine for not wearing a helmet too.

      In Belgium, cycling is the most normal thing ever. Everyone rides a bike here. I go to school by bike everyday, as well as 3/4 of my high school. Thats like 500 people. I actually don’t wear a helmet, I don’t know why. The government encourages it, but you don’t get fined. Nobody wears a helmet, actually. Maybe 2 people of my school.

        I wish that was the case in Australia! Besides early sunday morning, I rarely see any bikes on the road. But I guess that’s because everything is so spread out – you might have to ride 5km+ to get to the shops. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

          That’s almost the distance from my house-school :’D
          But I guess if you’re not used to it, that you’d be tired very fast and that it’s actually very far away. Xx

        I reckon! Maybe I can start a trend… lol
        I need to live in New Farm or Southbank! It would be so nice to ride around to the cafes & along the river on weekends. ^^

    Tags: Bike, Strida   


    Aimed primarily at commuters and city dwellers whose storage space might be limited, the Strida is designed to be simple to use, quick to fold, and easy to maintain.

    Folding in just 6 seconds and weighing in at 9kg’s, the Strida is one of the lightest, fastest-folding bicycles on the market. The Strida is also impeccably clean. With rust-proof components and a kevlar belt driving the bike in place of a chain, you don’t have to worry about dirty grease, lubrication, or adjustments. In addition, the kevlar belt never needs to be adjusted or cleaned the way a chain would, so you can ride with a clear mind. Strida bicycles are known for their hand-built quality. Given that they are single-speed, there is even less maintenance to worry about.
    Designed by Mark Sanders

    What’s ya flava? I think I like the white, and cream, and perhaps silver too.
    There’s something attractive about bike riding. When you’re flowing on a bike, its so peaceful and calming – definitely needed in amongst the hectic schedules and stresses of daily life.

    The cult of the vintage design Strida.
