Frist of all, thank you for your support for CityBikr! We’ve been having 60 unique visits per day on average with occasional outburst for a while now. It’s not much but it means a lot to a small photo blog like this. And when I say “we”, I don’t just mean me, myself and I any more. As you’ve probably noticed that Karl Ke, a.k.a 大师 (the master) has been posting findings from his trips too. Thank you Karl!
A while ago I wrote a bilingual article for 48×15, a magazine in English (now in 2 languages) about fixed gear and urban cycling in China. It’s finally out! You can read it here: http://issuu.com/48×15/docs/48x15vol003_issuu I also did the “CBNC Style Guide” and “Sack Attack” Chinese translation, which was quite a job cause Adam talks like he’s speaking a totally different cool language. The magazine in print is also free. You can get it from Factory 5 and other bike shops around Shanghai.
Last but not the least, I’ve been riding my Airwalk fixed gear bike for a little over half a year now. It has gone from white to grey, becoming a little rusty and the saddle got dirty and worn out. It would be great if any bike shop/company can sponsor me. I do ride around the city taking photos and get asked where I got my bike, what brand is it and where to get a bike almost every day. 🙂 (The only money I made so far, from a night ride photo sold to LA based 72andSunny used on marketing for a certain big corporation, has been spent on website hosting, domain and a small upgrade to my camera.)
Finally, I don’t write much and thank you for reading all this. Now enjoy flipping through the photos!

前俩月我写了篇双语文章给48×15。这是一份讲中国死飞和城市骑行的英文杂志（现在开始慢慢是双语了）。现在第三期终于出来，大家可以到此一读电子版 http://issuu.com/48×15/docs/48x15vol003_issuu 后面的 “CBNC 时尚指南”和 “淘宝包包大比拼”也是由我翻译。当时确实是抓破头皮硬挤出来的，因为杂志主编Adam说起英文实在太酷太口语。杂志印刷版也是完全免费的，刚刚起步。在Factory 5和上海各大车店基本都能拿到。图文都欢迎大家指正。
最后，我的Ariwalk死飞已经骑了大半年，已经从白色变为灰色，划痕斑斑，接头处开始生锈坐垫也磨损脏污了。如果有公司/车店能够赞助我的话将不胜感激！我基本每天都会骑车在市区拍照发名片，很多人常常问我我的车是哪里买的，是神马牌子，应该去哪里买车，也算是不错的广告。（拍到现在唯一的收入是卖给洛杉矶 72andSunny 公司用于某大公司客户广告的一张夜骑照片，用在主机和域名上已经花光。）

Some tube-changing pipe-smoking Chinese funkiness.
You think they invented the boobs + car promotion? Cyclists saw it on Ads back in 1898, when the little baby automobile was still learning to walk.
