Cycle Chic

Cycle Chic is about style on the bike while running an errand down to the local shops or other short rides

of course a flannel.

Fashion tends to be a bit slow in Australia however Flannels are coming back - think Seattle Grunge. Not only that, fashion from the entire era, plus a bit before and a bit after.

Methinks some things from that era is best left in that ear though. Those sunglasses make me want to be sick. Nothing in particular against the ol' flanno though. Reminds me of all those idiots paying big bucks for 'designer' flannels, kind of killing the soul of the grunge scene, but hey if 'hip' people want to blow their money.

I'm sorry, but I think sixx will find this image deeply offensive - it features red and pink in the design! :P

Nothing wrong with the clogs, but what's with the cheese?

What are you thinking bowie... time for an Aussie Cycling Bogan version? It is going to be thongs (for your feet) galore.

does a dutch cap provide better protection than a cycling helmet ? :P

Yes, the concept hasn't been invented here

Style and Bikes.... it can be done again and again and again

I like this one - fixie and converse together, not that's style

A cute helmet isn't going to ruin your image either

As discussed on an earlier thread that was locked down quickly, I have seen several bikes with the full chain guard and mud guard set up cruising around Adelaide.
The shop is in Pultney street in the city and has the "Cycling Chic" style bikes for the urban commuter...be they man or woman! :roll:
