This excellent Frank Patterson illustration perfectly captures the ennui of the cold-season (foot)bike enthusiast. We’re exploring exercise and transportation variants and tweaking our rides. That nut must have rolled under the bed.

No, it’s a noodly-framed homebuilt from R.A.S.T.A.Bike (more like P.A.S.T.A.Bike), a Russian club similar to RatRod bikes, where members roll their own. A tip of the ushanka to Trottinette Magazine.

Raleigh Sports footbike imagined by Peter Hummers
This Fantasy Footbike is based on one of my favorite bicycles – the Nottingham Raleigh Sports, popularly known as the Raleigh 3-speed, a true dyed-in-the-wool classic, perhaps one of the greatest bicycles ever made, if measured in world miles ridden – not to mention sturdiness. This illustration was made from this photo (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0), taken by Len Gilbert. Click on the pic for a larger version.
