Pedal Savvy Fashions at SF Bike Expo

14 Nov

Look, a blog post with bike fashion photos and not a single one of me! The cool gear at the SF Bike Expo was worth the trip to the city and cost of admission alone, but it was the Pedal Savvy fashion show that made the expo for me. The stylish fashions and cool bikes in last year’s show were brilliantly eye-popping, a definite inspiration for me to up my game. You know where that led.

This year’s show once again featured both made-for-the-bike and standard street apparel, with some vintage items thrown in. There definitely seemed to be more technical bike wear disguised as standard street apparel this year. I guess the mainstrean bike industry is catching on to what the boutique manufacturers figured out years ago–not everyone wants to look like they stepped off a bike, even if they just did. I like this trend because it gives you the best of both worlds on those days you’ll be putting in more miles, like the 35 miles we did to get home from the show.

Here are the Pedal Savvy models as they rolled around the bike runway. Click the thumbnails for a large photo slideshow.

Oh, look a video too. And still no me. This is the final promenade of the models and their bike. At the very end you’ll see Ms. Pedal Savvy, the stylist who made it all possible.

    Were you there Saturday or Sunday? I think I see you in the background of this photo? (right above the rear tire)?

    Ah, I see me in the video — I’m the guy on the red couch who stands up with my camera at 0:40 to shoot photos of Gwen and Mr Peanut.

    Unfortunately, Gwen wasn’t in focus :-(. I didn’t catch who the other woman is in that polka-dot kimono, but the photo I shot of her at 0:46 is here:

    Walkthrough finish

      The overhead, backlit lighting was dreadful. Make my HD video look like SD.
