Slow pleasures

Oooh, check out these lovely Dutch-style city bikes from the Canadian Jorg & Olif collective – they really do seem to have captured the essence of the classic European commuter.

I’d have to actually ride one to be sure, of course, but the designers would appear to have found the next sweet spot on the retro cycling curve – fixies, after all, aren’t for everyone. In a better world (and how often do we even bother to articulate visions of same, anymore?), more people would get around town on steeds like these.

    These are beautiful bikes, though rather heavy (something like 35 pounds). That sort of weight does provide more of a workout if you’re not just noodling around, so there’s another check mark in the plus column.
