This is the worst quality picture since the early 2000s, probably,

Wow, what a shitty picture.

but I still like the bike. Makes me want a lollipop or something.

It was a chilly and gray day, and I saw this one coming out of a coffee shop, shortly after I bought earbuds that kind of match. It would be kind of silly to wear them while riding the bike, no? Silly or perfect.

White and gold FTMFW

There I was, walking back to work after coffee shop + walk with Bud, and my heart stopped.

A love story started here.

This is quite possibly the most beautiful bike I have ever seen, both online and in real life. I wish, wish, wish I had had my real camera on me. If I never see it again, it will remain through the lens of my 8310. Swooooon.

Green in SoHo

I met my friend Matt for lunch @ Fanelli's yesterday, and got to meet his bike for the first time.

Matt's bike

Isn't it a beauty? I can't even describe how bright it is IRL.

cute typography /detailing

I was walking around a cute neighborhood on a particularly sunny day, when this color combination caught my eye.

The cutest bike.

Then I walked a little closer and saw the wonderful, wonderful detailing painted (or decal'ed) on:

The cutest bike – see?!

10-speed: check. bright (white) wheels: check! I love it. Wonder where s/he got that done.

Long weekend

This was kind of great to see on Memorial Day Weekend, streamers and all.

Pink and purple

Look at those pink pedals!

Bike riding weather is back.

Last weekend, the weather was beautiful.

Volume Bike Co.

These two bikes are quite different but equally wonderful. I love the script on the above, and I love the powder blue with lemony trim below. Oh, and the white handlebar tape. Makes me want lemon meringue pie.

Blue, yellow and white

While on a walk, in search of whatever coffee shop I first walked by:


Now that looks like a proper 1970s cruiser.

The colors of this toasty cruiser remind me of how Jacques Torres' wicked hot chocolate tastes.


If that bike rack (well, and the fence) had not been there, it would look better. Ah well, still nice.

Perfect, perfect, perfect.

I couldn't think of a dreamier one.


The curviness, the splash guards, the brown shade of the handlebars and seat put against that teal, the curls of the black iron gate /fence, all of it. You're one lucky bike owner, whoever you are.

Civil War rider

I saw this springy seafoam & yellow Bianchi yesterday, one of the coincidentally springiest days I remember.

Lovely Bianchi.

The bike's owner was sitting next to it, looking around and wearing a Civil War-style hat. Hope he didn't mind.

Vegetable craving

I love the silhouette of this cruiser. And the basket!

"More aspalagus, miss?"

I saw this one adjacent to the gradient 80s spray paint-looking one (see below). I told Ira that it made me want to eat asparagus.

Saw this bike from the window as I was having lunch yesterday.


Reminds me of the types I would see in KMart or Sears when I was a kid. I'd feel lasery while riding it.

Cake batter

Oh, bother. I took this over a month ago and forgot to post it! Well, here you go.

Buttery Vespa

I know I know, another one that isn't exactly a bicycle, but Vespas are just so pretty, don't you agree? This buttery beauty showed up on the way to lunch. An Italian lunch, even. Can't get any more perfect than that.
