Kate Spade and Adeline Adeline have teamed up to produce a bike made in heaven. Its Kelly green colour and retro stylings give me such a pang. Ever since my 1973 Raleigh was stolen a couple years ago, I’ve been nothing but lustful of a ride such as this. I miss my wheels! She was a twenty-five dollar yard sale purchase, and in mint condition for a babe of her years. I’ve resigned myself to replacing her; two summers without a bike has now become unbearable.
So, let me just say right up front, that this Kate Spade number is the stuff of utter bike fantasy: Italian steel meets trad English accessories and a hit of NY colour. But I’m willing to indulge if you are! The price tag may not be optional … but the bakery boxes are.
