When we first moved to SF, Regina lacked the requisite hipster machine, so I found this cool ~70s Azuki frame, which had been recently powder-coated, for $60. Good deal. Since it was all-black and Regina is a girl, I figured pink accents would be good. Of course, it all went too far...
|before I had my own headset press, I had to go to bike shops for some operations, in this case Valencia Cyclery, my favorite local shop|
Spending $130 for a headset on a frame/fork that cost $60 is silly, yes, but it does look cool.
Here's the first iteration:

Later we decided this bike needed to be more practical, so the track-ish position had to go, and baskets were required. The finest handlebar for a city bike is of course the Nitto Dove, so that's what we got.
|from hipster sled to grocery-getter, and better for it|
