Thanks for the pics. I like photos 2 and 3 -- nice, elegant panniers/briefcase attachments rock. Still, can't possibly imaging getting those 50 pound bikes up our hills...
The gentleman in the photo was riding in Silverlake and Eagle Rock for this social ride. He rides like this on his Flying Pigeon all the time in LA which is a lot of up and down hills. He isn't a westsider that gets to enjoy the mostly flatness. Dutch bikes are not super rare in Seattle which is also really hilly.
Sweet photos! I know the guy in the bottom photo. :-)
