One more step towards helping mankind.


Maybe it was the pink rims, or the pink and silver flames, or the dice valve caps or maybe it’s just the cruiser type feel of my new Electra bike, “The Betty” that screamed, “This bike is for you!”

Isn’t it oh so cute and charming? PLUS, it’s just another way to save more money and spend less time at the pump filling up with $3.00 per gallon gas. Do you know how many more Frappuccinos I can buy with the savings I will reap from biking to the grocery store, or the hardware store, or the BAR?

Damn, I’m a genius.

P.S. The pic shown is of the kids model...if you want to see the adult size go here. I didn't post that picture because of this. Seriously, she had NO INFLUENCE on my decision to purchase this super cute bicycle. It was ALL ME!

But where are the handle bar tassels? Surely that would be Swank, no?

Sandra said...

Does the bike have a frappuccino cup holder? DOH!

Bud said...

Very cool ride! No shit.

Do you have any idea how much fat is in a frappucino? You're better off making your own with no fat stuff. Then you won't have to peddle your ass twice as far to work it off. Oops, sorry, I'm a total no fat fanatic, I guess most people really don't give a shit, do they?

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen and since I am riding my bike to work now (when it's not raining), I MUST HAVE ONE. My bike is 10 years old and not in a cool way.

While the bike looks so called, "cool" it does seem to be lacking some serious safety related items: No reflecters and thats bad because none of the Earth hating SUV drivers will be able to see you leaving the co-op at night. Also, be sure to wear you "Wellment" (I dont use the H-word), knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards.
Your health is just as important as Mother Earths!

That's the cutest bike ever! But if you're going to ride it to the grocery store, you're gonna need a basket on it. :) Maybe I could send you one of those personalized bike license plates.

Rob Lowe said...

If I saw you peddling towards me on that I'd say:

"Hot bike, hot chick. Maybe I could get a handjob out of this."

Figuratively, of course.

Bikes are fun but the snout on the mantis head shaped bike seat has been know to cause men's testicals to shrink thusly turning them into women....

I think that's the US's goal actually. Evil bastards.

Jen - Mpls_Red has a point. With your track record for accident-prone-ness, you might consider getting yourself a swank helmet. Or a "hair-met" like JD on Scrubs.

Johnny: I KNOW! I debated the handle bar tassles...and they are still an option. I did get the bell though.

Sandra: No such luck, I'll just have to sit outside the Nokomis coffee shop and drink my cup 'o joe in the morning. ;)

Bud: I get the "Lite" frappuccino...don't worry I got it covered, I refuse to get fat from frappuccino.

Danika: Wed it is!

Mpls Red: Thanks for the concern, but you know what I REALLY want from you? Yup...deals...GET ON THAT! ;)

Mystery: HA! I totally had a personalized liscense plate on my pink huffy. And I bet you anything it's in a box somewhere in my basement.

Rob: I didn't know one could be figurative with a hand job...?

Bennet: Hmmmm..castration by bicycle seat, interesting concept. You should write you local congressman.

Danika: You know, I am actually surprised Josh didn't require the helment with purchase...acutally, that's the first thing Damian asked, was if I had my helmet...jerks... ;)

Oh my goodness! How did I miss this post? I love this bike! I want to steal it from you!

The Muse said...

SO FREAKING CUTE!
And what's better? You've given me something to distract myself with while I make it through the last couple hours of work. (When really, all I want to do is go home and try on my new shoes that I bought at lunch.)

Mpls_red said...

It's called a "Well-met". Really.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Those are some sweet-ass sweet lookin' bikes!

Glibbidy said...

Cute? No way, that rig is BAD-ASS all the way!

TheSugarV said...

Wow that is a really nice bike. It really has great style.Is it a ten speed?

The Husband said...

Kevin said...
