I like all the old school stuff on that blog.

A couple of years ago there was a MASSIVE celebs on bikes thread somewhere in BF.

some cool pics. Did I somehow miss it or is there a glaring omission in that collection? Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch, one of the most iconic bicyclists ever.

Unfortunately most of those pictures are soley for publicity. Very few celebrities rode their bicycles on a regular outside their studio, where bicycles were a common and practical mode of transportation, prior to the golf cart. The one celebrity I'm aware of who rode regularly outside the studio was Doris Day. Perhaps she should be the C&V poster girl?

Funny story................We live about 60 miles SW of the city of Chicago, out in corn country. Right across the street from our house is place called the Farnsworth house. Mies VanDer Rohe built it for his girlfriend back in the day. It seems to be all the rage with the tourists. Anyway, a couple of years ago they filmed a Japanese underwear commercial there with Brad Pitt. My brother in law the sider who drives a big red one ton, was headed off to work one morning and sees this scruffy little guy riding down the middle of the road with a backpack on. So he honks at him to move over some and when the guy turns around, it's Brad.

Madonna's personal trainer in the '80s was a big proponent of cycling and, being Madonna, she bought the best bike at the time.

Is Christie Brinkley on a frigging Rene Herse?

I assume that thing is 650B, because she is isn't a giant as far as Google knows (5'9")

Wondering that too. Looks like an awfully nice bike. I note I misspelled her name. Only thing I know about her is that she married some singer and that she has a nice .....uh .... bike.

I didn't know Claptin was a rider that's cool.

Also why is May not on an all original Raleigh Twenty?

At my store we have loads of celebrity clientele 'cause we are in the village, funny thing is I only recognize a few of the top A-listers 'cause I haven't watched much TV for the last few years. Apparently before I worked here the first year we were open we got some newspaper coverage for actresses liking our shop.

The last two I can actually remember who had paparazzi snap them on the actual bikes later where Kirsten Dunst and the supermodel Agyness Deyn.

Kirsten Dunst brought in a fairly clean Raleigh Sports she had purchased from another store in the area a year ago. She needed it tuned and the stock, ripped brooks b72 replaced, also inquired about lightening it up. We replaced the rear wheel with a chrome aluminum ss coaster brake wheel. We have her ripped seat on our broken brooks wall. Papo snapped picks of her walking the bike to us, and the next day when she rode it away, they stalk her hard. I guess it's deserved though because she was in the best superhero movie of all time; Spiderman II, and she is an outstanding young actress who takes difficult roles.


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.

Has anyone figured-out what bike DiCaprio was riding in the beginning scenes of ‘J.Edgar’?

And I’m also a big Audrey fan.
