Spotted: The coolest bike in Copenhagen?

June 08, 2016

We're reporting from Copenhagen this week — here's why.

Copenhagenize founder Mikael Colville-Andersen likes to joke that to people in his city, a bicycle is about as interesting as a vacuum cleaner. But that's not quite right -- a vacuum cleaner is a mundane tool but it isn't part of daily life.

In Copenhagen (as in the cities that biking believers around the U.S. are currently working to build) a bike is maybe more like a pair of pants.

Most of us just look for something functional. Some prefer elegance. Some are happy with whatever the resale store has for $10. And a few of us (here I'm looking at my friend Josh) are in the market for whatever turns heads.

I'm going to assume that's the case with the owner of this bike, which was *ahem* spotted on the north side of town.

Don't miss the matching bell.
