A bicycle basket allows a bicycle rider to carry cargo or objects without using their hands. Baskets on children's bicycles and some utility bicycles are often mounted to the front handle bars and are made of wire mesh, wicker, or woven plastic.
"Barbie" is a song written by Bruce Morgan. After already having the instrumental track recorded, the vocals were recorded Feb. 8, 1962 by Brian Wilson of the American pop band The Beach Boys and the Wilsons' mother Audree during their early years as a recording group.
Barbie is a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959. American businesswoman Ruth Handler is credited with the creation of the doll using a German doll called Bild Lilli as her inspiration.
Since her film debut in 1987 in ', Barbie has been a virtual actress starring in several feature films and short films.
it needs a wipe down and a new headlight, but it got maggie's stamp of approval!
i've been looking for a cute bike and this one caught my eye. i went for the "good" over "great" condition one without the basket (which said barbie and i didn't really want anyway) and got it for a song!! and yellow is my favorite color - bonus!!
DieFiets 1 and That Car 1
Like the bike itself, the basket is functional. Here is my notebook of press clippings with a photo of the That Car 1 during it's first year as an artcar. The photograph was taken in Vermont, which reminds me of the Netherlands with hills. The glass flower is a cast off from my friend Dan Schreiber

Good Millwork: Architecture Students Design Build Project
MINIMALIST CHAPEL Photos... Architecture Students craft an elegant and unlikely place of reflection.
The Field Chapel is a project designed and executed by the students of an Advanced Design/Build Studio at the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture in Chicago for a ecumenical church co-operative in Boedigheim, Germany. Led by Professor Frank Flury, the project was assisted on a pro bono basis by the firm of Ecker Architekten (Buchen, Germany) with the craftsmen, volunteer workers and townspeople of the Odenwald/Bauland, a rural region in northern Baden-Wurttemberg.
Program The task of the design was to create a place of spirituality. Professor Flury defined the project for the twelve students who come from Alabama, Alaska, California, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Tennessee and China, as “an interdenominational chapel, a space for people who are in a search for God – a place for quiet reflection, but also one that welcomes hikers and cyclists who appreciate a rest stop that has a sense of beauty. ”
Background and Participants In January of 2008, the Reverend Moser-Feesche contacted Ecker Architekten with the intent to build a chapel. He had no funding, held no property, and did not have the support of his congregation. He did however, have a specific idea about what this building should be and where it should be located.
Dea Ecker received her Master degree in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). Her long-time friend and former school colleague, Frank Flury, is a Professor at IIT, and teaches an Advanced Studio for Design-Build Projects at the College of Architecture in Chicago. After discussing the potential of a Design-Build project with the Reverend, Ms. Ecker contacted Prof. Flury. The project constellation seemed to fit. Flury’s studio has designed and built diverse projects in the U.S. that have had a positive social impact. This was the first viable possibility for the students at IIT to execute an international project.
In December of 2008, Prof. Flury visited Boedigheim to examine the site and to discuss the project with the Reverend. After this initial meeting project responsibilities were agreed upon: Flury would guide the design and construction of the building, Ecker Architekten would work with local officials and obtain necessary building permits, and Reverend Moser-Feesche would secure property rights and assemble the community for the volunteer work necessary to complete the project.
In January 2009 Flury introduced the project to the Design-Build curriculum and received an enthusiastic response. Over the next 3 months, 12 students developed three design alternatives. In March 2009, these projects were personally presented to the governing municipality of Buchen and the citizens of Boedigheim. A After lengthy discussions two projects were chosen for further development, with Prof. Flury ultimately responsible for the feasibility of a final proposal. Armed with a donation of lumber from the city of Buchen, the “Professor from Chicago” and the “Reverend with an idea” asked for the trust and help of the townspeople to realize the project. With commitments from the local blacksmith, carpenter, sawmill owner, and the farmer (whose field the chapel was to be built upon), the town of Boedigheim agreed to implement the project.
Tasks were subsequently delegated. Prof. Flury developed the design with his students to ensure completed construction in a single summer semester. From March through May, the Design-Build Studio and Ecker Architekten were in constant contact. E-mail, AutoCAD, and Skype teleconferencing were the tools used to translate a student project designed in an American university into a set of working documents that met or exceeded German construction standards. Dea Ecker contacted the local officials and prepared drawings to obtain the necessary permits in time for the groundbreaking scheduled for early June. The Reverend Moser-Feesche and the community were responsible for the acquisition of property rights and for the collection and coordination of accomodations for the students during the construction phase.
The student group arrived in Germany during the first week of June. Despite an unusually rainy summer, the project progressed smoothly. With the help of countless volunteers, the chapel was constructed in just 8 weeks. Over 400 people witnessed the official benediction on 25 July, 2009.
Design The ecumenical chapel stands on a hill between the villages of Boedigheim, Seckach and Gro?eicholzheim.
The structure is visible from afar but can only reached by foot or by bicycle via a steep country lane. The students developed outdoor facilities and space as a logical consequence of interaction: when arriving at the site, a narrow footpath leads between an existing hedge and the blank tower facade to a small gravel forecourt, which is bounded on 2 sides with massive benches made of loca
1982 Peugeot Pro-10
Peugeot PRO-10 "Prestige" 1982 serial no. 1.02 2914
Purchased on eBay 16 March 2010, back on the road 30 May.
Peugeot created its own in-house custom racing bike frame building division in 1974, the same year that Raleigh did the same with its SBDU (Specialist Bicycle Development Unit). The model designation PY was adopted for the Prestige Peugeot machines.
In addition to building the Peugeot cycling team's bikes, Prestige Peugeot offered off-the shelf machines, including limited edition replicas of Tour de France champion Bernard Thevenet's PY-10, to the French and European market as well as completely custom made framesets with a wide choice of components featuring the Spidel Group (Simplex, Stronglight, Mafac and Maillard). Framesets were available in 531 Extra Legere (531c), 531 and 753 tubing with choice of geometry and colours.
Depending on the frame tubing or components, the PY could be available in the following varients PY-10 CP (1977-1980) PY-10 EC (1978-1979) PY-10 FC (1983-1986) (Carbon Fibre) PY-10 LC (1980) PY-10 LCP (1979) PY-10 P (1988) PY-10 S (1981-1983) PRO-10(1982-1985)
The PY-10CP (Course Professionelle) was always the top-end model with 531 Extra Legere or 753 tubing (1980 only). This was rebranded in 1982 as the PRO-10 (531 Extra Legere only) which proved to be the last model built by the Prestige Peugeot division. The example offered here is the PRO-10 for the American market which was offered only in the 1982 catalogue and was essentially the same as the 1980-81 PY-10CP except for a braze-on front derailleur and drilled rear drop-outs. Like the PY-10CP, it was available only by custom order with an eight-month wait usually. By this time, component options were limited to hubs, rims, stem/bars, seatposts and saddles.
The Prestige Peugeot custom frame shop was closed c. 1982 and the remaining PY models were factory made complete bikes.
Purchased as a complete machine with almost all origial components. Clincher wheelset replaced with a sew-up wheelset with Spidel Professional hubs and Super Champion rims. SR Laprade seatpost replaced with Simplex.

Ames True Temper 2388100 65-Foot Cassette Hose King Reel
This compact cassette hose reel combines many fine qualities in a most convenient package. It's easy to carry around, exceptionally easy to store, and rugged and waterproof to boot. There are mounting holes on the side in case you want to hang it on the wall when you're not using it, and the double O-rings keep the unit from leaking. Toe tabs help stabilize the cassette when you're pulling out lengths of hose, and the hose winds up easily into its carrier case. And, best of all, this cassette comes with its own hose--65 feet of it. On the downside, this structure needs to be assembled, which isn't a speedy process. And 65 feet of hose may not be enough for your lawn and garden. If it is, however, this cassette reel is a good bet.
Note the complete lack of a pump hose. This Edco pump may need more than a prayer to bring it back from the dead. The fender can only be remembered in this photo by the threaded stud remnant fastened to the chainstays to the right of the chainring. Sad indeed, that a fahrrad that lacked any sign of use would be laid to rest in a corrosive environment as the Florida air has to offer; a long way away from it's home in the Swiss Alps.
sticky foil bicycle pump
An Egyptian taught me how to pump a tire with the wrong type of pump. Wrap the sticky foil (the one used to cover foodstuffs) around the valve, then push in the valve opener with a little pepple and jam the pepple in the valve so it stays open. Then pump while checking the pressure gauge of the pump. When the pressure is right, take off the pump hose and the pepple should come right out with the valve being close and everything done.

Even though the smaller always has right of way over the larger in Japan, small always loses when the larger makes contact. Spotted this near the Nikka Whiskey intersection in Susukino. I've actually seen more motorbike/auto accidents than bicycle/auto as bosozoku ride pretty quick as they rev to the red line. And this poor guy has to make his statement to the detectives before the paramedics can roll him to the hospital. Few cyclists in Japan wear helmets and if you want to wear one while in Japan, bring one with you.

BRATZ:MOVIE - DVD Movie
Get your Bratitude on! Bratz, the life-action film featuring the four sassy tween-queen doll characters, drives home the kid- and (parent-) friendly messages of being true to yourself, and friendship above all else. If some kickass fashion and retail therapy help deliver those pearls of wisdom, who's going to complain? The action centers on our favorite BFFs, Jade, Cloe, Sasha, and Yasmin, starting high school together at Carry Nation High, and navigating through the rigid clique system that seems destined to force the girls apart. Along the way, there are fireworks (created by brainy Jade in chem class), food fights, and lots of cute guys to crush on. Ruling over all: Meredith Baxter Dimly, the Baby Doc Duvalier of high-school politics, somehow managing to be student-body president for at least three years running (maybe the fact that her pop is the principal has something to do with her anointment). Meredith, played to a scheming fare-thee-well by Chelsea Staub, is a formidable villain, but our girls realize nothing can come between true friends, if they just stick together. The climactic comeuppance scene--set at Carry Nation's annual talent show--will have Bratz fans clapping on their feet. The film's soundtrack is upbeat and catchy, and features big names like the Black Eyed Peas and Ashlee Simpson, and the two show-stoppers sung by Staub as Meredith. And that's a Bratz-wrap! --A.T.
