About bicyclerainbow.com

bicyclerainbow.com provides photos, information and how-to articles about vintage bicycles: 3-speeds, 10-speeds, road bikes, hybrids, muscle bikes, choppers, folding bikes, classic cruisers, tandems, bmx bikes, old school bmx, mountain bikes, vintage mtbs, single-speed and fixed-gear bikes.

I am (obviously) not a photographer, writer or web designer. But I do find a lot of old bikes.

On bicyclerainbow.com, you will find everything from detailed reviews of 30-year-old road bikes, to short collections of snarky tongue-in-cheek comments about crusty vintage bicycles, to in-depth how-to bicycle repair articles, to worshipful diatribes about vintage BMX bikes. My opinions have very little to do with riding bicycles, and are based mostly on aesthetics.

There are plenty of well-designed websites offering amazing photos of incredible bikes, cycling lifestyle blogs, customer bicycle reviews, bicycle forums, and the latest bicycling news. bicyclerainbow.com doesn't do any of that. I celebrate the run-of-the-mill vintage bicycles that you can find in every suburban garage or basement in America.
