I likee ... but there is something about the composition and the OOF guy that isn't quite right. That is quite a bike he has.

2nd vote for the minimalist bicycle. Looks like it could fold up to fit into a shoulder bag.

Only in New York.

I wasn't too sure about the oof rider, but the more I look at it, I think it works because of the odd nature of the bike.

Wow! Looks more contraption than bike. Used to ride tons ... lacking time and/or inclination of late.
Mountain = Swinn full suspension
Road = Medici (hand made to my specs ... too bad they went el foldo)
Other = Electra (comfy city)
Other = grass sled (nothin' finer on a steep hill)

BB, you need to tell us about that unusual bike you have there. Did a friend take this or did you set up your G3 on a rock or something?

I like it. Framing is really interesting and the slight suggestion of colour in the processing treatment is awesome.

What the heck is happening with that bike though?

Fun bike: Beltdrive, 'lefty' and 'righty'. With the standing tube attatched to the top of the steerer, I wonder about it's stiffness....
Nice image. I think the guy is moving a bit?

Thanks for looking all! This is actually a self picture, taken after a quick run to a bank ATM on a Sunday. I used my G6 with a Raynox wide angle lens, mounted on a diminutive Ultrapod, and fired by remote (which was in my right hand, if you look closely). Framing is not the best, man it's difficult to take pictures of oneself, especially with people walking by, freezing temperature, and you have to watch out for seedy characters who might just grab the camera and go :) I kept the ISO at 50, and since this was dusk I had to use a long shutter speed and I moved a bit. Hence the somewhat fuzzy me.

The bike is a Strida folder - it's a pretty weird bike as you can see. It folds down to the size of a folded baby stroller, so you can store it in tight places, carry it aboard buses and trains and wheel it inside supermarkets, banks, etc. You can fold and unfold it in around 5 seconds. The kevlar belt drive is greaseless and will not dirty your pants. I use this primarily for errands not exceeding 3 miles, and I often get stopped by curious people requesting me to fold and unfold the bike.

I'll post more pictures of this bike soon. There's an annual folding bike ride in NYC - I was able to attend and take pics two years ago but last year I was somewhere else. I'll try to make it this year and will post pictures of that crazy ride.
