When I was young, my bike was of extreme importance to me. I spent endless hours riding and took more than a few spills - I have a few scars to prove it. Then, when I was seven, we had a fire in our garage and my "Ramblin Rose" pink bike with the banana seat and vinyl woven basket got slightly charred and melted. If I ever were to get another bike, I would love one of these very classic Pashley bicycles like the Princess (above) or the Poppy (below). Pashley is England's longest established bicycle manufacturer and I love the way they incorporate the best engineering without sacrificing the classic form, which makes their cycles picture perfect. They look completely photoshoot-worthy to me. One would look good even just sitting around - like a scene in one of those old Laura Ashley catalogs from the 80's. Sigh.
