I’m generally not that into “bike porn” (someone please come up with a better name for it). However, when I saw my friend Z wrapping her bars in hot pink Salsa tape that perfectly matched her frame, I was struck by this eye-catching bike. Originally a white and blue Marin, Z had the frame sandblasted and powder-coated for the annual Breast Cancer Ride. I generally steer clear of pink, but there’s something about this particular shade that’s quite appealing – mainly that it says “kick-ass” and not “Barbie aisle.”
Z is riding this weekend to raise money in honor of her mother. Click the photo of her below to go to her personal fundraising page and donate to a good cause in honor of your favorite survivor!
