MY BIKES

What bikes do you have?

I have a Soma Buena Vista set up with a 3-speed internal hub, dynamo lighting, and upright bars. These days I usually commute with that bike. But I also have a 1962 Dunelt English 3-speed that is my back up commuter bike and super fun to ride locally. I have a Surly Crosscheck that I use for long distance leisure rides.

What are the names of your bikes?

The Soma Buena Vista is called “Josephine Baker.” The 1962 Dunelt is called “Emma Thompson.” The Surly Crosscheck is called “Marlene Dietrich.”

IMAGE USE

Can I use your images?

Online: My illustrations & posts may be shared online for educational and non-profit purposes. Proper credit and link to my site must be included (e.g. artwork by Bikeyface, www.bikeyface.com) Please do not modify my images, re-post a significant number of images, or re-post entire blog posts, or a combination of these things. I generally don’t mind translations as long as they keep true to the content (though in most cases I probably wouldn’t be able to tell.)

All Other Uses: My illustrations cannot be used in any other way (including print, merchandise, books, for sale or profit) without explicit permission.  Please contact me if you have a budget would like to use one or more images of mine. License fees/royalties may apply for use of images depending on desired use. Because of the time involved with managing image use & licensing and the value of the work I am unable to facilitate no/low budget requests. (Why? Read this.)

One Response to “FAQ”

  • Alan (Uncle Robot)

    Dear Bikeyface – you make me laugh and sing the praises of all the youngsters moving bicycling into the mainstream. I’m almost your mother’s age (59) and have been biking nearly daily since I was 8. After living in Portland OR and DC for years – where biking was easier – moving to Boston in the late 80’s was a culture shock of car hostility. It’s gotten so much better and ever more so with people like you. Thanks for your humor and hopefulness – too often I get into mean bikeyface mode and do a poor job of ambassadorial bike riding to all those stuck car drivers. After laughing at your sweet messages I’m going to work hard on being a sweeter bikeyface.
