A Few Links from Copenhagen Cycle Chic

Here are a few links worth noting from Copenhagen Cycle Chic, which, if you don't already know about it, is a fabulously fun time:

  • Somewhat less spectacular, but still good is Amy Kealoha's and/or Sara Huston's 12 Bikes for Girls, posted on a style-finder site called Cool Hunting. The piece provides an overview of a wide range of bikes for women (and girls), triangulating from the lowly DIY garage-sale find to the bespoke and beautifully handcrafted Sweetpea, to the hilariously over-the-top Chanel "couture" bicycle and the oddly expensive series available from Moss. There are a couple in the group that deserve a closer look, and I'll see if I can arrange that. Cool Huntings also appears to have an ongoing bicycle-lifestyle agenda (a good thing), including some bits on baskets and bags (also good things), as well as other examined-consumer-lifestyle themes (generally good things as well). It's a little hard to sort the content from the advertisements, but hey, what can you do? Well, ditch the advertisements for starters...
