Default Bicycles

With the way gas prices are going apesh!t, I presume that bikes will be gaining popularity again.

And, just about in the late '80s, I became a bike fan. My first bike after BMX (at 12) was a GT Tequesta, and about 600 dollars later became my hardtail, front-suspension dream. I used to bomb Kaena Point every Sunday, riding from Mokuleia (Camp Erdman) to the Cornet store in Makaha, then back again.

Unfortunately, it was ripped off from my apartment when I was cleaning house; cut the Kryptonite lock and took off, leaving a cheap Raleigh that was stolen from the Bike Way not far away (the store reclaimed the bike; so I lost both ways).

Now I still have my Bridgestone MB-6 classic rigid mountain bike, aftermarket stem, bar, pedals, seatpost, shifters, and some other bits. plain, light, retro-cool.

I also have a Mongoose full-suspension frame given to me by my friend Nelly who left it here on Molokai, minus his Spinergy Rev-X wheels (a-la Pacific Blue). Once I get a set of 26" wheels I plan to rebuild it as a road monster/ cruiser.

I also have a cheap Fuji 12 speed that I'm going to convert to a one-speed messenger type "fixie" bike. Just something cool and uncomplicated to tool around town in.

I miss riding bicycles. So it sounds like Dan and Howard have bikes too. What do you guys have?

Anyone else? Anyone tinker and fool with bikes?

18'' is the length of the top tube from the seat post part of the frame to the head tube part.
most bikes vary in frame length rather than height for a given model.

2005 Kona Stinky
I think I may hang on to this one. This geometry has been virtually unchanged from 04-08(current). And arguably on top of the freeride world. It feels real good and real familiar by now. The '05 is the lightest frame year w/ the best cable run layout(a very small detail). She's taken some hits and I ride quite a bit as we are year round in Hawaii. I may keep the frame and fork and get new everything else and call her new. I like the setup I have now, very strong and fail safe. I've just kicked its teeth in so many times I think 2010 may be a new rig or all new components.

Did 9.32 miles today. Started at Lehua Ave via bus, went to stadium on the bike path along the shoreline, then down Kam highway. Stopped at my friends ice cream store (no cheating here), then went back on Kam and biked into Waipahu. At this point my legs became pure rubber and I felt very tired so I jumped on the bus back to Kapolei and went home.

At least its almost 3 miles more than last night.

I've got a cute foldable Dahon that I've used on my "commute" from the parking structure to the office building (1/2 mile away)... it got more and more difficult to pull it outta the trunk when I was pregnant. I put it away but have to pull it back out of storage to have it checked out.

I'm looking to pick up a bike I can really ride on the street or even "off-road". I don't need anything super fancy really. I'm just gonna get back into riding and perhaps try to ride more each day for exercise. Maybe if I get really serious and start running again, maybe use it in a biathalon/triathalon (yes, I'm a long way from that) Any suggestions on a fairly decent bike?

Im no bike expert. I leave that stuff to Daniel. But if you want to do some flat land small kine hills riding on bike paths and a little off road exploring then lets roll!

I'd invite Daniel on my excursions but he'd out pace me and find it boring after 10 minutes.

Because I take my sweet ass time.

I tinker too. <--hmm. double meaning on that one, I just noticed.

my current bicycle is rotting under the harsh elements I'll have to pull it (and the keiki's) out soon and do some required maintenance. take out rust. lube. make minor adjustments, etc.

I visit bicycle stores once in a while... Eki's cyclery isn't too far away from where I live... There was a road bicycle that was calling my name... but it was out of my current budget perhaps someday...

wow dan, your 'stinky' is awesome!

Dar, I had thought of buying one of those collapsible bicycles as well... but the styling never really appealed to me. The ones that were catching my eye on those collapsible ones were the models that carried those electric motors

Yeah, me too Howard. Dan would probably blow all of us away and be having his ice cream while we vapor lock trying to finish the ride at his pace.

I'm neither conditioned nor prepared to "bomb" like I used to when I was 15 years younger. I really should get back in shape (cardio) enough to comfortably do a 10 mile ride and not call for the medic.

I've been riding mostly out of necessity to get the mail, go to store, etc... just a hop, skip, and jump from the property, really. Very nice, and I realize what I miss when I drive, even here in Kaunakakai.

Only thing is that there's no sidewalks on the side streets, so one has to pace themselves with the cars (which isn't difficult since many of us here aren't in a bloody hurry to get where we want to go... we leave early), so it's kind of a win/win/win for everyone.

Now to get to the airport, that's a WHOLE different story. Like sea level to 800 foot elevation change in a 2 mile rise. I've picked up people from the side of the road who thought they could climb it (even with 24 speeds)... not for the unconditioned (like me).

Dar; I love Dahons! They're major cool and I actually like small tire adult frame bikes (BikeFridays are one neat brand). Hop on it!

If I come for a weekend, it would be cool to have a HT bike ride. I could jack my dad's Stumpjumper for the ride... frame size is almost the same as my Bridgestone.

hey there's nothing wrong w/ that

I used to rent/return movies go to the ATM, get scolded in the Burger King drive thru, etc. when I lived on KBay Dr. I used to ride to Aikahi SC all the time.
I guess I still do, I come home late and have to park far away. So I rack my bike and ride home or to my car. Why walk for 5-10min thru suburbia when you can rip it in under 2

oh and the folders are funny. I was on one and the guy didn't lock the folding part correctly. I went parallel kombi I sent the back to the left and front to the right and it made a sweet clicking noise then all was well what a laugh I had afterward though. My front and rear tire were tracking almost a foot apart

Ok im back. Broke the 10 mile marker...well....10.15 to be exact. Followed the tracks west into ko'olina. Just about ran out of water and it was hot. So I hit Lagoon #1 when everyone else was fustrated looking for parking. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Victory to the guy on the bike! Locked it to a tree and jumped in!


I couldn't go any further.



People fishing off the rock ledge.



Look at this fool who's sweating and should have packed more water.



Rewarded at last!

I have to drop my Dahon off at Eki sometime soon. It's been sorely and sadly neglected by me...

This is the little one that I have:


and it folds up to this:


I'm thinking about selling it to get a regular bike but I kinda like the little folding gig. I just hate looking like circus bear. Maybe when I'm at Eki's I'll look at regular ones. I wonder if they have a trade in program.. haha!

Those are some nice pics of Ko'olina Howard. I haven't been to Ko'olina in YEARS!! I think the only time I've ever been there was back in 1995 when I first graduated and came here for a vacation. Wow, it looks pretty out there. I wanna go there now. Dar shall play hooky one day to frolick in the warm blue water.
