Tami's commuter

posted on June 03, 2014 by John

Glen built Tami’s bike about a year ago. Mainly, Tami wanted a bike to commute on: something that had racks, integrated lights and fenders, and upright bars. But she also wanted a lively, quick-handling bike that was optimized for her size. This means 26” wheels, steepish angles, and an ultralight tubeset: features we’re not going to see on off-the-peg bikes anytime soon.

She sent these pictures along with a note:

“i love my bike and really wanted the most perfect pic to capture how beautiful it is. alas, i am not going to retire as a professional bike photographer but it was really fun trying. :) let me know if you would like something different, i’m more than happy to try to make it exactly how you want. don’t forget to give a shout out to Rickshaw Bagworks to bikers who want cute, US-made bags, they are a very conscientious SF company and they make quality product. hope all is well with you and your family.”
