Since the invention of the bicycle, it has proven to be one of the most ingenious, unfettered forms. Even though trends have come and gone in terms of the shape of the top tube, width of the handle bars, height, wheel size, the basic shape of the bicycle has not changed. It's a classic. It's iconic. And, now it's hip. And hot.
