Why Beyonce & Jay Z like these bikes

I had heard that... But maybe by having his bike stolen, we lost out on having the Greatest Cyclist?

I think her head size is pretty normal, but she had a very slight build and was only 5' 4" tall, so with that hairdo the head looks disproportionately large.

And "They Call Me Trinity," "Trinity is Still My Name," and "Boot Hill."
I forget who played his brother.
They were the 35-cent matinees when I was in middle/high school.

It's a charming series, kind of an Italian 'Murder She Wrote.' The fact that Il Padre rides a bike is a running gag; it always takes the cops longer to get anywhere by car through the scenic, narrow, & winding streets of medieval Gubbio.

Not to mention Small Soldiers, one of the best I've seen for pure fun.

Agyness Deyn is a British supermodel whom I had never heard of but apparently is pretty big time, she got Kate Moss' Burberry contract after the, uh, incident. She is one of our best customers and she is a huge c/v enthusiast but she rides modern Electras too. We built the below bike for her, Triumph Sports with 700's laced and the twist shifter. the below shot was for a magazine or something but she does ride it quite a bit, more than her other bikes. I think we actually gave her that bike as a gift.

Steering, rear wheel is fixed.

It is difficult to see in photo as Mrs. Doyle's skirt covers the connection between the handgrips she is holding and steeering mechanism.

Was thinking that ca. 1896 this cycle would have cost much more than one year's earnings for an Isle Of Dogs resident.

I was reminded of this while writing about risks of long distance CL buying/selling.

When Michigan was handing out juicy film tax credits in 2008 +/-, I rented out my Ann Arbor home to movie stars for a 3-4 month gig. I am the only man in Michigan who can claim to have shared a bed with an Emmy winner and an Oscar winner, Neve Campbell and Hilary Swank, unfortunately not at the same time.

So these ladies have ridden my mountain bikes; now was it the Trek or the Scott?

Would the outcome be different if I had an Ironman then?

All the previous images of him I have seen a-wheel were on a mountain bike. Did not know he was a roadie as well. Is the gentleman in the lime jersey in the background from The Service Secret?
