    HA! Practical is good. I never understood why women would want to walk around all day on a tiny 2" high heel. Makes no sense. If a woman was doing that for me, I would tell her "Dont do it for me. Wear real shoes that are comfortable and touch the ground. THAT is hot."

    Amen scottyk! I think high heels are modern-day footbinding... but anyway...

    WOW! Sweet ride. And tassles... mother effing TASSLES. Now that is something to behold. Jungle theme, no less!

    Practical is definitely good! I don't do the high-heel thing if I can possibly avoid it. I think all high heels should be defenestrated!
    The rhythm is gonna get you...and if it's v-tach or v-fib you're in for a shock!

    Actually, I find it far easier to ride a bike in high heels than to walk in them.

    Donna,
    You aren't alone in the riding part. I have seen pictures of a certain lady riding an entire weekend in high heels on a vintage 3 speed as part of the ABCE Tour
    I also recall seeing on occasion the last time I was in Paris too.

    The thing with your xtracycles is that they look brand new. No war scars. No stories.

    I have plenty of stories about time spent keeping them spiff

    Truth be told though, they are more about a couple of grocery bags in nice weather than hauling grand pianos through ice and sleet


    This one gets a little more action.

    MKS sylvan touring pedals with PowerGrips. I adore them. The guys in Commuting helped me with the installation.
