An anonymous tipster emailed me a link to this groovy Electra bike this morning. The tipster says “a friend of mine bought one last year and LOVES it.” Yes, it’s cute and all, but I’m afraid it simply can’t hold a candle to the Skeppsult of my dreams. (My preferred model: The nature, in dove blue. Feel free to email or IM me for my shipping address.) My friend Dave emailed me yesterday and said “I kid you not, a friend of a friend’s girlfriend just got one of those Skeppsult bikes. She did nothing but talk about it last Saturday night. I’ll see if she’ll let you ride it.” Let me ride it? I’m gonna mug her for it!
In other bike news, none of you slackers has come up with a snapshot of the aforementioned blue-with-yellow-lettering “Bicycles” sign. My Well pal lmc did send me a link to the photo of the bike mural below. (I’m guessing Google led her to it.) The site that image came from is cool too: 14 to 42: New York City Signs is a lovely exercise in obsessive documentation. (Which I am all for.)
