Absolutely.
If I was a 5 year old girl I would be ecstatic about those.

I'm confused. If you're not a 5 year old girl why would you want a pretty bike?

The masculine opposite of ugly is not pretty. (What boy wants to be pretty?)

A boy who is comfortable with his sexuality I guess.
Now do you have any pretty bikes or are you just here for the witty repartee?

Because I am not interested in people's opinions on whether the bikes are Hot or Not.
I want people to post their pretty bikes.

Or this ... this is a particularly nice collection of bicycles. Partly because they've actually been used to ride centuries.

If I may request, if anyone posts their pretty bikes can you point out what makes them pretty? I can never see it but I'm sure it's my deficiency. Thanks.

In this whole thread I only see three pictures ... one Moots that looks great, and two kid's bikes. How much lamer could a photo thread be? (I'd post pics of my bikes but none of them are "pretty.")

Neither my bikes or their engine care much about their vanity.

My bike is pretty!

Especially in a good setting. A very clean cut bike, if I may.
