If I were to buy a bike, it would be the Tocino 18D by Electra. I am pretty much in love with this bike and I am starting to save my money to buy it. The $1500 price tag is a little more than I would like to spend but the bike has such a classic style that I could have it forever and it would therefore be more like an investment than a frivolous purchase. Plus, I would feel like a stylish Parisian every time I rode the bike!! Do you bike and if so what do you ride??
