It depends. If he’s just out for a jaunt to the corner store, then almost anything goes. Beyond a few miles, close fitting, inflexible fabrics that do not breathe become very uncomfortable. I cannot help but look at such photos from the perspective of a bike commuter, but to each his own!
Love love love this picture…. great view of the shirt, summer is in NYC…love it…the bicycle gives a great attitude to this guy, simple, relax, casual and having fun with the present and the atmosphere … I hope if I go next week to NYC I will see you around the city! That will be a dream!
Love this look. As for the people complaining about the headphones, have you been to New York? The pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers are all crazy daredevils. That’s one of the great things about the city.
A bike store in Brooklyn sells those Beyonce bikes. They all look like that and have the words “Beyonce” and “Knowles” written throughout the bike. His hair, headband and shirt make quite the cool combo.
Also, personally, and probably selfishly, i love this guy’s style for its similarity to my own, and for that beautiful shirt. To those of you who are complaining about his impracticality, I live in Seattle which has hills everywhere and I bike around in that kind of thing all the time up to 15miles but usually around 6-8. To me it’s a matter of collection. If i’m going out to enjoy the city for an afternoon, i want to feel the warming spring air on my arms, the humidity in the air increase as i get closer to water, smell the dust of the pavement down in the idustrial district, stop for a beer or a bite to eat, enjoy the lingering look from girls as I wait at lights with one leg down. And I like to feel physically present as my ideal self. Since the whole ordeal is a very sensual enjoyment, I dress for how it makes me feel aesthetically when i look in the mirror and for how it makes me feel interacting with my environment. I feel more relaxed, collected, and present. If I were to put on “biking clothes”, I guarantee I’d enjoy it less.
Think the tube says Beyond , probably a frame from the now defunct Beyond bikes out of San Diego..
Too hipster for me this , Headband on a what should be a fixie with a handbrake ?
