As a fairly serious biker and fairly serious photoer, I love both the concept and the execution, or what we can see of it in your very good pics. Love the bikes hung on the wall, dirt and all.

Thanks! Yeah, I really wanted to show them in their "natural" state - especially the cross bike, which can be easily mistaken for a road bike.

Do you carry your camera with you when you bike? How? With extra lenses? Thanks.

Absolutely. I use a Spider Holster and a special bracket a friend made that allows me to pull the camera in/out of the holster very easily, as seen here:

It's perfect for riding. Allows me to unlock, pull it out, shoot, then put it back in the locked position very quickly.

As for extra lenses - most of the time I just ride with one, but sometimes I have an extra in a shorts pocket, or either in my messenger bag or a small ThinkTank bag on my bag's strap.
