Cool L@@K at these nice looking bicycles. :)

OK, this is a post about cool-looking bikes. Actually, I mean my opinion of a cool-looking bicycle. This is NOT a post on the quality of these bicycles. If you want to post pics of cool or unique looking bicycles here, go ahead.

I THINK I'M TOO LAZY RIGHT NOW TO ADD THE PICS, I MIGHT DO IT LATER. HAHA.

NOTE: On some of these sites, you may have to change country to United States to see the bicycles (or France for Peugeot).

The first is the Cannondale Quick 5. Why? Because I like the silver color of the frame.

Lombardo F-Cross 500. Awesome-looking frameset. Don't like the stem though.

Very nice bike, looks like a cool comfortable cruiser. I don't know what the go is with flax, is that actually wood or what? its going to make heads turn anyway. Enjoy

Holy cow! I really like the colors and paint on that frame! Excellent choice! I hope it holds up and rides well. It matches the decor in your garage^H^H^H^Hliving room.

yes the colours are similar and I guess being an eco-themed bike having leaves painted on it in water-based paint kinda suits it :-). The bike looks better in person, not had it out that much, but when the frame lit up the last time I rode it I got some strange looks .

Its lighter than I thought it would be and the steering is very light and direct. Its pretty silent too, no clacking noise when you are pedalling or freewheeling, lovely.

I just need to get a good lock for it, I dont want it stolen.
