Chicagoans love their bikes. And whether you use yours to get to work or belt out some Beyoncé— if you wear jeans, this model is for you.
Brand new to Boulevard Bikes, Brooklyn Bicycle Co's Driggs city bike is now available in a Denim colorway. The jaunty ride is painted in a subtle blue shade, and it has cream-colored wheels that add to its sunny-sky vibe. How idyllic would it be to cruise between the Green City Market's flower stalls on this? (Of course, in our reverie Carla Bruni is playing in the background and we don't have near collisions with any market shoppers. We're allowed to dream.) The bike comes in three and seven speed options, $579 and $749 respectively.
