Looks like Reynolds is producing 931 stainless steal tubes. Amazingly thin in places too.

Nice. I still need to restore my Mandaric custom built frame from Reynolds 531CS steel tubing.

But please, do not STEAL our STEEL bikes ...

So, IMHO, the most beautiful steel bikes, including a Stainless Steel model, are built by Dario Pegoretti. He hand paints the frames so no two are alike. He has built bikes that have been "badged" by many other manufacturers. Obviously there are many good examples of great steel bikes, my favorites wear the Pegoretti name.

Check his page out, clearly an Artist.

Hi all, New here and cool site,

Here's a video of some of the bicycles I've collected a while back. 

post #3141 of 3879

Here's a few pics from my explorations on bicycle around Tokyo.

 

Want to hear a story?  Last month I was riding my bike late at night down a dark street with no lights (going kinda fast...).  I hit a curb and fell off haha.  Lost my phone and my left side hurt for about two weeks.  I want to say luckily that it is winter and I was wearing jeans and a jacket or else I'd have been very scraped up.  However, I really felt like riding my bike, so I just rode with one hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although I brought this foldable bike over from the US, I decided that I will be giving it to my neighbor when I leave.  He's out of work currently, and I kinda feel bad for him.  It was a used bike I bought for $100, and put another $200 into, but he could use it to save some momey.  Transit fares get really expensive in Tokyo.  I think I spend more on fares in a week in Tokyo than I do on a tank of gas.

I'll be buying a new bike when I get back to the US.

 

If I had the money right now I'd buy a Japanese folding bike and bring it back to the US, but the lighter ones (20lbs) are expensive.  For half that, you can get one that is 30lbs, but I think that is too heavy to be considered portable.  My fullsize folding bike is 30lbs already.  Of course I could get a cheap heavier one and swap out some parts for aluminum to shave off a few pounds.  Might be cheaper in the end.

Nice pix!

Oh man I hope you meant no street lights, not you're not no bike lights. I ride around in Tokyo too, but I'm also a driver & it really gets to me coming across a cyclist who has no lights. I've almost run down one or two, esp the salaryman in a black suit.

I have a temporary light on my bike, but it's not that bright. The street I was on was dark with no street lights. I did a few circles to look for my phone in the dark, but it's probably broken anyway. No biggie because it was a cheap and old android phone.

Too many people ride around without lights, even in the US. They think reflectors are good enough, which they aren't. It's scary in Tokyo when all of these mamacharis are rusted up and squeak when braking probably because the brakes and rim are so worn that they are probably hitting metal against metal.

Great that you were able to shake it off! Beautiful and inspiring pix. May you, members pigmode; AnakChan, post more pix around Hawaii and Tokyo. :wink:

It's my dream ride to trek up Mt Haleakala! 

post #3149 of 3879

No riding here.  Might be -20 tomorrow!?!?!  Snowed earlier and big cold!

post #3150 of 3879

I took the last two weeks off due to some pain and discomfort. Monday's ride will be one of recovery - taking the sights in along the ocean front. Or Tuesday.... just remembered :rolleyes:a few business tasks. Will have you in mind back there in snowy Illinois at any rate.
