the ny times is pretty good at delivering news in a timely fashion, but they are not always timely in their cultural trends. if only they had someone on staff who's been riding a bicycle for awhile now who watches style to alert them to this trend of cycle chic. (pssst, they do.)
the mama texican sent me this link of portlandia types talking about their style in "the pearl." and yes, bikes are accessories. of course.
enjoy! and bill cunningham, why wont they listen to you more? heh.
