My my.. linear pull canti-lever brakes on a retro-chic roadie. The neighbours will talk!

[edit: +1 facetious comment about the v-brakes]

Shoot me now. The smugness in that comment is straight out of a Jeep Cherokee/BMX X5 ad.

Anyway, what was I saying about pictures?

Ferrari, Porsche, BMW... all arrogant brands that have all had a go at bike design and failed miserably.

It's very clear to me:

- any bike that any car company designs should be immediately rejected on principal
- no car company logo should ever appear on any bike

Anything less than that is like inviting the devil to your tea party!

I like that the manifesto includes a line about mudguards and is immediately followed by a lady covered in mud.

Also: value-of-clothes > value-of-bicycle? Good luck with that!

You guys are getting boring again.

Sorry for the size*, not sure how to resize from a blatantly hot-lifted imgur pic URL.

Not so much resizing as excellent support. The profile is surely all wrong for any other kind of 'help'. :shock:

I'd say most of you would enjoy this site I just found;

bikechicks.net It's SFW... W for Work maybe.. but perhaps not Wifey.

They're at least smart enough to stop blatant hot-linkers (like us) so I thought I'd just share the link! :) Some of the pics also actually have a bit of a back story if you click on the "info" link at the top right hand corner of each.
