The city bike I mentioned has generated a lot of e-mails and comments. So I thought we should post a few photos of nice city bikes. As always, click on the photo to enlarge it.
The Cinelli photos below were sent by Neil Berg. Please note the integrated handlebars. And you thought only the French thought up this stuff.
Then there is Japan's CS Hirose:
Mike Barry of Mariposa knows a bit about elegant city bikes as well:
If we do build a city bike, here are some issues, at least the first of them:

- TTT type bars or French bars?
- Disk brakes... no, never mind. Hub brakes or side-pulls?
I'll post more photos later today.
