More Liberty of London Bike Pics


I wasn't the first to post pictures of the Liberty of London for Target bikes. I saw one of those fuchsia, floral affairs on for the love of bikes first. However, I was hanging out in the library one day perusing the magazines when I spotted a photo not-seen-on-the-internet of a Liberty of London bike in O Magazine. Unfortunately, my local branch doesn't have a scanner. That's why I'm so appreciative of Tracy at Comfort & Luxury's scans of the new bike. She did a good job at getting those tiny graphic details and you can clearly see how much the bike is and when it'll be in stores.

At $200, these bikes are priced similarly to the simple, white Muji bike, but where Muji is known for strong design and aesthetics Target is known for low prices. I haven't found any manufacturer information on the web so I can't surmise anything about the quality of these bikes. With Liberty of London's brand on the line, I don't think they would collaborate with Target on a crappy bike, do you?

Wardrobe Malfunctions Avoided


Here's a preventative measure for the unfortunate gender-bending effects of the nude bicycle + mini skirt photo that has been making its way around cycling blogs galore: funky old fabric seat covers; matching bag optional.

First Day in the Year of the Tiger



This cyclist has certainly been getting around, as well he should. This is the year of tiger so we need to get our mojo going and get out there. I had a nice long ride this evening in the "cold." Grrrr!
