Photo: The Coolest Bike Ever

This is the only bike I want to own, with its emergency bottle of wine. Now, if only I can figure out a way to attach an engine to it. San Cristobal, Mexico.

You used to tell some really awesome travel stories man when you were roaming across Asia man. Now it seems it died down to showing a picture or two a month.. Maybe it’s time to relocate?!?

Agreed. I’m moving slower than I have, thus fewer crazy things happening. But I have to make a living and I can’t do it on a 14 hour bus or in a small Laos village. Struggling to find a balance between experience/net access/time, but it isn’t as easy as you might think.

Seems I have overused the term “man” here sorry! BTW: I didn’t mean to sound like an asshole.. Sorry!

Not at all, mate

Well, it sure looks like it beats the hell out of putting the wine in your water bottle holder. Tried that once, and it turned into a $17 stain on the sidewalk. Lame-o…

Oh noes! Nothing worse than losing good wine :/

That. Is. Awesome. I definitely need that bike. :)

Oh! this is a great bike! I need it for a contest in rocky point.

For how long will you stay in Mexico?


wes October 19, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I’ve been here 6-7 months overall (the majority of that in San Cristobal) so it’s time to move. I’m heading home to spend Thanksgiving with family and will then either come back into MEX (haven’t seen Chichen Itza yet, or –frankly– a lot of places. I’d then head south to see Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama. The other option is to get a change of pace (I’ve been in Central America for a year) and head back to Asia, for Songkran in Thailand, Burma, Bali and the Philippines.

Going to rest up before I choose…

I would love a bike with a wine bottle attachment. Nice!

This is one cool bike. I would love to own one. Beats the hassle of riding a bike to go to a friend’s house while holding an expensive bottle of wine on one hand.
