Lacoste commuter bike

Lacoste commuter bike at Eurobike 2010

Spotted this on Cyclefilm’s twitpic yesterday from the annual bike trade uberfest that is Eurobike.

I love Lacoste. Currently on my most wanted list is their 60th anniversary Snoopy limited edition at Dover Street Market (more details pics on Fashionism).

The Fashion+Cycling Venn diagram has an increasingly large intersection.

In the UK Paul Smith+Rapha+Condor is the most high profile and globally, Puma and Chanel have both put out their own branded bikes.

I like the rack at the front of the Lacoste, the moustache handlebars and general styling, plus the increasingly popular belt drive (I’d love to try a bike with one, especially a cross bike). Not sure I’d want it in white though.

Stef reckons “it looks like a Globe done up as a ghost bike.

I’d take it in Black or a classic colour, definitely. But not without mudguards. What’s the point in a commuter in the UK without guards? Even Chanel put guards on theirs.

Incidentally, that integrated seapost looks suspiciously like a Look one.
