peninsula tour (day 1/3)

memorial presented a chance to share a tour amongst friends, so off we went for an adventure through half moon bay, butano, and big basin.

Amazing photos. As usual.

"At the top" is such a great shot. I love how the line at the horizon is clear but blends. Incredible.

And the Adam action shot is great. What is Adam riding? I spy an 8-speed Alfine set up, but what's the frame?

What is hanging from Adam's BB shell?

I like your fun.

Adam's touring bike is a folding dahon that clears 26" big apples. It's a wonderful bike for this purpose. Alfine with an eccentric BB so convenient to work with. The hanging piece is used to hold the bike together when it is folded (though I think it got bent up a bit by the end of this trip, you can remove it for trail riding purposed activity).
