Give me a R20 and you can call me bimbo any time. Actually, at my age being called bimbo would be a compliment (or a lie..).

I thought there was an R20 in this collection but it was a Raleigh Chopper. A fair # of small-tire bikes though.

Let's see... Male, 6-2" tall, 215#, 52 years old... sounds like the proper description of a Bimbo to me.

Love my Twentys

She is not a bimbo because that is not a Raleigh 20

ps. Its the wunderbar multi-tasking Chloe Sevigny on a folder.

No helmet riding in flip flops, talking on the celly... I know her, believe me she can do all of those things at the same time, the no helmet thing irks me, girls always look cuter in helmets.

IDK, bike infrastructure is better in Copenhagen, and DK, Amsterdam and NL,
than NYC and USA, so a more casual attitude wont be as dangerous, elsewhere..
