The Bicycle as a Fashion Accessory

Look, I don’t want to be a moaning old git, but has the bicycle become too trendy? Discuss…

Look, what do we know, but I was just sent this bit of PR about a new photo exhibition called ‘City Cycle Style” in which (amongst others), “Sir. Paul Smith and Boris Johnson feature in photography exhibition of the Capital’s most fashionable cyclists”.

“The collection captures 40 of the Capital’s most stylish cyclists on their two-wheeled transport of choice; from vintage and fixed-gear to classic lightweight and Pashley bicycles. From fashionistas to financiers, an increasing number of Londoners are taking to the saddle.”

I know that any type of cycling should be encouraged, but is this just a bit of ‘jumping on the band wagon’? OK, I know Paul Smith has been mad keen on bikes from a very early age, but what do you lot think?
