Kanako sent photos of three pink bikes:
I love pink and love your site. Here are my 3 pink bikes.
1) Custom Bike
I got this bike custom made with my first salary after college about 20 years ago in Japan. I brought it all the way to the US. I don’t ride it much now but still love this bike!
With all pinkness on the bike, as well as my pink helmet, socks and jersey, I won the most color-coordinated award in the 2008 Redmond-to-Spokane (WA, 300 miles) ride.
I had never mountain-biked before but had to buy this beautiful bike! Now, though not very good at it, I love mountain-biking.
Here I am on my custom Ruegamer tri bike. I’m short, 4’11″, and was unable to find a tri bike that fit my legs and torso, so I had to go for a custom bike. It fits me great, and it’s super cute, so I feel better while riding it. If you’re not fast, then a cute bike is very important. Here I am on my bike at the Ironman in Austria in July 2006. I have a Dura Ace derailleur and a FSA carbon compact crank. I’m getting ready to order a custom road bike, this will also be pink. I love my bike!
