I secretly love old Peugeots with cute paint job/tire color schemes. It makes me want to selfishly befriend someone with access to a powder-coating shop, just so I can give my bike a makeover every few weeks.

I’ve never liked the geometry of step-through bikes. However, I might be willing to reconsider, since wearing cute skirts like this would be a lot easier. With my current bike, I always have to wear tights and scrunch the skirt up around my bum. I feel like there’s probably an AbFab quote about hemlines that would be very relevant right now.
