Welcome to

Bicycle Fish - Adelaide

(Now with a new URL , and translated too !)

Since 1998, an independent and sometimes iconoclastic personal page, low on graphics, high on useful information - and just about bikes.

( Skip preamble ? Go straight to new stuff...? ) 

Bicycle Fish values the individual bicycle traveller's needs for simplicity, economy and authenticity.

Like many other websites, this one is much better using the "F 11" key - try it & see!
