I ride to work through a local park that has a disc golf course in it. The trail winds through several holes, and the other morning it was a bit foggy out, so I brought my camera along. Here are a few of the shots I took:












This bike I call "Ubee" was built up from an old Bridgestone "Technart" frame, with a Nexus 8-speed IGH, Velo Orange fenders and chainguard, Brooks saddle, and a few other goodies. It turned out pretty nice for what started out as a lower-end bike boom 10-speed. Technart was basically aluminum lugs cast around hi-ten tubes. It gives a comfy ride, if a bit on the heavy side. That's why I've got it geared for climbing. Kind of pretty, don't you think?

Both your Pepin tour bicycle and this one look lovely.  Your Pepin tour Raysport is especially lovely.  Rebuilding older used bicycles into another lifetime of use makes good sense in every way.

Thank you for the compliment!


This hobby has been the best outlet I've found yet for my creative urges. To build something beautiful that is also useful is quite satisfying.

Neat rig!  I really like the blue frame with the contrasting silver and black parts.  I, too, find much satisfaction rehabbing older bikes back to a useful life.
