Lately, I have been in the mood for some urban peddling. I do not have a bicycle anymore, but I am considering investing in a Martone. I first discovered these bikes at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York; as a guest, you can borrow white ones from the hotel.
It seems like bike riding is a new cultural trend: New York employed a shared bike system with Citi, the city of Amsterdam has more bikes than people and everyone I meet at the Mansion Bar in Dallas arrives via bike.
If investing in a designer bike is not your priority this fall, check out this $140 mint cruiser.
