linusI always feared that I would turn into the male version of a crazy cat lady. The good news is that I am currently in possession of only one ill-tempered cat. The bad news is that I may turn into a crazy bicycle man – as I have two great bikes and keep wanting to buy more.

The fine folks at Linus Bikes make it really difficult for someone like me to keep things in check, as I love all of their products.

About Linus Bikes: “Inspired by French bicycle design of the 50s and 60s we have created a bicycle that preserves the simple elegance and pure form of that golden era, but has all the benefits of modern comfort and reliability. LINUS is the utilitarian city bike… simple and reliable, but with a personality and style that makes you feel like you’re in an old French movie… you’re floating a little from the wine you drank at lunch… maybe instead of going back to the office you’ll take a nap under a tree, go for a swim in the sea or drop by your lover’s house… At Linus we see bicycles not only for recreation and sport, but as a legitimate form of transportation. In our everyday life we take numerous little journeys, under 5 miles…. to the store, the cafe, to work, etc. Besides the obvious joy of riding a bicycle, these small bicycle trips reduce carbon emissions, congestion, noise pollution, and make for a happier, more connected city experience.”

Specifically, I love Linus Bike’s Roadster Classic (above right): “This stripped down, elegant ride is the bicycle in its purest form. A simple, clean profile inspired by French and Italian cinema from the 50’s and 60’s.”
