Here’s my Guu-Watannabe bag (and a duffle bag from Wharf clothing and wares) attached to the large porteur rack of my newest bike.

The pictures were made along some of the bike trails around Arlington and Falls Church, VA.

On the Road…The Eden Center, Falls Church, VA

with 2 comments

This tree — conveniently used as a bike rack — is in the parking lot behind the giant Vietnamese shopping mall known as the Eden Center. (See below for a view of the front of the mall right before an early evening thunderstorm.)

I ride over here regularly to get my banh mi or pho fix (here are some Yelp reviews if you’re curious).

And if you haven’t noticed, the front wheel you’re looking at in the picture above is super dreamy:

  • 700c x 32mm Grand Bois extra leger tires
  • wide body SON delux Schmidt front generator hub
  • PL23 Pacenti rims
  • Velo Orange porteur rack
  • Velo Orange 45mm hammered fenders
