Betty Foy in the Red Eye


“I love owning a semi custom bike because it suits me perfectly and, as a result, I enjoy riding my bike even more,” she said.

*Betty Foy would like to point out that she is against sex trafficking.

    Customer came into my bicycle shop B&L Bike Shop in Davis, CA today with one of these beauties.

    Really, any bike that is ridden and loved becomes custom pretty quickly, even if it came from Wally World.

    Hi Dottie, I love your blog. Your Betty Foy is gorgeous, but I am curious about the lack of a chain guard. Do you find it to be a problem? Also, do you have any insight as to why the Betty Foy is made without a chain guard? I know it’s supposed to be a sporty bike, so a chain guard would add undesirable weight, so perhaps that’s the reason. But since it’s also supposed to be a multi-purpose bike, I would think folks would want something a little more street-clothes-friendly.
