Signs that Cycle Chic has gone mainstream

I've seen retailers carry folding bikes, but UO has a folding cruiser bike from a company called Bazooka Sports that comes with fenders, chainguard, and a rear rack. They're selling streamers and other bike accessories and even a book about bikes!



(Meh. I think my handmade streamers are better).

Too bad the fork is on backwards in the bike photo. Kinda riuns the effect.

That's an interesting choice of a bicycle for UO. Totally never heard of that bicycle before.

I agree about the streamers. Etsy has some great ones (only if someone is not too crafty.) Your own handmade ones are the best! I loved yours for 60 cents in material costs.
Very shiny and pretty.

Jon-- Hmmm. Can you still ride the bike that way, because I once had to assemble a bike when I worked at UO and that's how I tested it out. They just grab whoever isn't too busy at the moment to work on projects like that. In this case, the visual merchandiser probably had to put the bike together (as if the task was anything like dressing a mannequin).

Riding Pretty-- Thank you for the streamer love.
