My bicycles

Updated: 09/03/2020.

These are my bicycles. All custom built from various parts, since the factory finished complete bicycles are never 100% suited to my needs and taste.  🙂

 

White Arrow

Scott Speedster - custom built

Great for longer distances on paved roads.
Scott Speedster S20 FB frame – for hybrids.
28 mm tyres – the thinnest I find practical for riding.
Mudguards, because it might not be water.  🙂
Rear rack for carrying backpack and panniers.
Full Shimano 105 3×10 groupset.

As of 2015 groupset switched to 2×8 Claris – cheaper and more robust.

Mule

The Mule a.k.a. Pink Thing

Serbian made steel frame from 1996. All other components have been replaced in the meantime, except handlebars, rear rack, shifters and front derailleur.
3×6 friction shifting – works flawless.
In the winter it gets studded front tyre and is ridden in snow too.  🙂
Shimano Deore V-brakes, Alivio bottom bracket – it is a gem in disguise.

Beach Cruiser 🙂

Made of thrown away parts in service. Front tube was the only investment – because 24″ tubes aren’t replaced that often, so didn’t have any spares to patch. It rides and brakes OK.
