Bicycle Girl from Korea

Check this out; a bicycle advertisement from Korea showing a pretty girl just looking cool with a bicycle.

This is refreshing. I would like to see bicycle ads like this in the states appealing to youth. Somehow, it just makes bicycles look cool.

Yes, her winged helmet/hat is kind of reminiscent of Sheldon Brown's helmet with the eagle on it.

Took some educated guessing, but I found the less-compressed pics here:

After you click on the thumbnail, click on the button above or below the not-quite-full-sized image, second from the right, to expand to full size.

Maybe she's into flatland tricks?

Maybe not... no pegs on those axles.

Gadzooks! Those chicks are all riding muscle bikes and it seems to make sense. They look tougher than any guy I have ever seen on a muscle bike!

You clearly haven't seen a womans thread of the sort filled with pictures of guys in tight lycra with the camera targeted at various interesting and possibly unintended angles.
I have. *shudders and dips head in bleach*

Oh god... it's her...
She's a korean supermodel, virtually the Korean Heidi Klum, of course she wouldn't ride a bicycle.

I'm surprised she even signed up for this though, I'd like to see Heidi Klum do bike ads.

That IS a Helmet!

It's called a "Pith Helmet".

If you've ever seen old movies, the explorers wore them while exploring 'Darkest Africa".
