I've been dying to get on a bike since getting to Paris but with bikes being expensive, me being poor and not knowing where in the world i would put one I haven't gotten one yet. One of my resolutions is to make use of the Velib bikes this year. I keep telling myself that spring is right around the corner and bike season will soon be upon us.
The above bike was built specifically for Mike Giant by 4130. Looks like the perfect city bike. Giant designed a pretty cool shirt for 4130 that you can buy from their site here.
Bad ass Freeman Transport, who got a mention from Mr. Staple the other day, has a really cool write up over at HighSnobiety give the interview a read, it really makes you think about what quality means and what it's worth. It's strange that Gretchen and I were having a similar conversation brought on by the Soldes that start today in Paris. Boiled down does the fact that something is cheap make it a good deal or is it better to spend more on a few choice items? Our total lack of space makes every purchase highly analysed around here.
