With 80-degree weather upon us, it's the season to retire that Craigslist cruiser for a proper bicycle.
Your first stop: Solé Bicycles in Venice.
This “bike-style” company designs and sells fixed gear and single-speed bikes that are 10x cooler-looking than your first car.
Just check out the yellow jacket-colored Micklish or the Delano (it would be right at home in Magic City).
Did we mention some of their bikes are works of art?
Literally: Solé features eight unique, custom designed bikes in store by prominent Venice street artists.
So when you walk in, be on the lookout for street artist AJL’s
graphic-novel inspired wheels, or KFish’s rainbow-colored ride, featuring Pac-man on a diet of Dippin’ Dots in the belly of a Diamondback snake.
Because your beach cruiser should always be one part Nat Geo, one part ice cream, and one part 8-bit eating machine.
