Look good Biking

bicycles are one of the most aesthetically good looking things. almost any bike looks good, especially ones that are functional and plain. the classic city bikes with no gear are great. the movement of bikes are equally pleasing. last week, i was in Siem Reap, Cambodia with a buddy and we decided to take a tour of the ancient ruins on bike. we rented a double suspension mountain bike for 2 USD and headed off to a crazy tour of the area. of course we had to stay on trail or roads due to the presence of land mines, but the trip revived my love of cruising on a bike. as a child, biking was a means to get around or to race other kids. then it became the perfect trail and forest exploring machine. but these days, i find myself going to the stationary bikes and staring into a window at the city outside. no longer! if i'm not skateboarding on the bike paths, i should be biking on them!
on my trips to Japan, i found out about the brand LG (Louis Garneau). it sounds french? well, it is. but the bikes that i like are sold in japan. LG sells biking clothing and equipment outside of japan though. the bikes are simple, usually solid in color, and now the colors can be personalized. LG is not famous for making the best bikes that people ride in the Tour de France or down any races. but their bikes truly look good. expensive, but it's the price you pay for design. i ran into another friend who recently bought an LG. the "EVIL" or MV IL. it's a rusty orange, city bike with two set of auto lamp mounted on the front rack. the components are Shimano & speeds and nothing fancy. in fact, it's the lowest on the ladder of LG's "small wheel" series. nevertheless, i think this bike is perfect for city dwellers who don't venture far into the woods or streets. the seat is gel padded and very comfortable, which i truly appreciate after my trip in Cambodia. it has mud guards, front and back, and basically a perfect city bike.
you can check out LG's website for more cool bikes HERE (the site is entirely in Japanese): [equipbug]
