Without love from Amsterdam

As you may have seen we hit the waves yesterday on the twitter feeds for Amsterdamize and Copenhagenize. Today we're on the Fietsnieuws Krant. Very surprising!
We don't have twitter or smart phones so it was pretty late in the day yesterday before we picked up on the conversation and had to piece it together backwards from the twitter platforms of each site. Lighting up on the Ize-igentsia radar surprised us considering the most radical thing we usually discuss is the best bathroom on rides to the local science museums. You can find the comments on post about the make your own bike below.

Helmets, while we wear them, are a non topic usually nor is it hard to miss that our blog is essentially a valentine to the Dutch ingenuity that went into the heavy cargo and kid carrying bikes we use to get around. Are we the bloated lackeys of the Big Helmet industrial complex? That might be taking it a bit too far. Is it flat in Holland and does it rain there? Perhaps only sometimes. Is our new Frankenbike ugly but really more fun to ride now? Absolutely yes and it would be terribly easy for you make one yourself, too.  Greetings from our crazy messy midwestern American city to yours wherever that might be.
