I went through several pages looking for a set of dropped bars. Finally found Clark Gable (track bars turned with grips pointing down) and Errol Flynn.

It's not a fixation -- just an indicator of serious bike interest.

Agreed that this is very cool. I like how Grace Kelly's shoes match the bike.

Nevermind Sophia, Audrey's where it's at!
This one wasn't on the site but I think it's worth being seen.



A quick google search and it looks like she really does enjoy riding.

What a great resource. I don't "get" tumblr, but the images are fantastic.

Oh and Sophia over Audrey, for sure!
