Bike Porn Friday!


Following the "Incident with the Tick", I feel it's time to throw some positive light on the wonderful nation of Suomi, and what better way, gentle reader, to do so than through the medium of Bike Porn Friday?

So have a look at those beauties up there. Ooh! Aah! Ovat ihana!

They're made by Pelago Bicycles in Helsinki, a fairly new bicycle maker that makes beautiful steel bikes for riding around cities. The one above is the Brooklyn, and their other models are the Bristol, Antwerp and Pietari. One cool thing about these bikes (besides the fact that you can ride around on them singing Bon Jovi) is that the Brooklyn and Bristol both come in single-, three- and eight-speed options. They also come with Brooks saddles, which is something our style-conscious and Tweed Running members approve of without even having to think about it (Matt: they go with your shoes!). Finally, have a look at those prices: pretty reasonable for a bike that looks so damn good.

I'm going to visit their shop next time I go to Helsinki. Don't be surprised if one day you see me toodling around on one of these sexy s.o.b.s:





TroisV!
Flotsnoo!

Now here's some Kauko Röyhkä:
