Xylon bikes

It's rare that you get something that makes you go "oooooh pretty" and "oooooh cool" at the same time. For example, take the wooden bicycles at Xylon Bikes. Tipped onto them by my friend Jessica, I'm not sure if I would trust myself on the streets of New York with one these things. I mean, I'm a pretty laid-back person when it comes to personal property, but for those special things I value, I can be pretty neurotic. And if I had a Xylon I might get a little nutty about wanting to keep it clean and pristine (which in reality never really happens) and would stress all the time about possible theft.

Oh well. I guess it's better for me to just admire the wood frame and material workmanship in photos and get my "ooohs" and "ahhhhs" out in a healthy non-covetous way. My favorite design? Hands down the Cell, pictured above.
