Huffy? I enjoy your blog, style and mode of transport but HUFFY? SO many stylish choices available! It’s a critical accessory! Look at all your European bicycle photos. They don’t ride cheesy bikes. You need better wheels. And a good lock. Done with rant.
Huffy and Schwinn make a nice couple! Why are people criticizing these lovely wheeled steeds? There is nothing sillier than form over function when it comes to bikes. These two lovelies pictured have a beauty in their dedication to duty and allegiance to rider!! And a fine collection of safety gear on both! There is also nothing finer than a nice big basket!
@reigs. The Pashley bikes are an excellent choice. Brooks saddles. Classic English styling. Sart would look amazing on several of them. There are so many interesting bike makers out there – the bicycle equivalent of having bespoke shoes or a tailor made suit.
An odd memory – Literally the first day I drove a van with my things into NYC from Chicago, my rearview mirror JUST missed braining George Plimpton who was buzzing around the UES on his English 3-speed. Talk about a brush with fame!
THANK YOU! Thanks for riding a bike. And publishing that fact. And looking and being fabulous while doing so. And sharing others whom you spot pedaling around and looking poised and pretty to boot. I am a cycle commuter in Austin, TX and we pride ourselves on riding stylishly over here as well….We have way more heat and sweat to be concerned with, but no bother.
you guys desperately need better bikes. the schwinn is maybe ok (but not necessarily), but huffy? yikes. terrible quality bike. sorry, i’m a bike quality snob. if the purpose is function over form, then these bikes definitely fail. :o
