My Ride #6

So I seem to have a bicycle addiction, and followed up on my earlier desire to switch to belt drive.
I currently have 4 bikes in 4 countries.

Schindelhauer Siegfried - alu finish, aluminium fenders, fixed gear, with footstraps, then I pulled the Bike Porter from my Koga, and also switched out the saddle with the new Brooks Cambium which I ordered this summer, in anticipation that it would go on my next ride.


PD Design Summit

Toward the end of this past week we went to Munich with the Product Design team from Designit for a summit with the other Product teams from Designit. It was my first time in München, and of course we did some of the typical touristy things while we were there.

Hofbräuhaus - apparently one of the more (most?) well known brewhouses in Munich, with lots of tourists going in just to take pictures, let alone sit down form some food, and grab a LITRE of beer.

Camera fun with big beer glasses

Ein MaßWhat a 1 Litre glass of beer looks like (mind you I do have kinda big hands)
