Bikes a Thing at Auto Show

February 12, 2016  From the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.

Yes, there are a whole lot of nice vehicles. Crossover vehicles are trending, big trucks making a comeback, and plug-in vehicles are definitely here to stay.

Bicycles seem to be a thing, too.  Auto makers show their hipness to hipsters by putting branded bikes on the racks of cars for the super actives of the world.

And style matters.  Ford has a townie bike with tires made for streets like mine.  Lexus’ peddler looks like a street racer, and Subaru looks so very European.  But Volvo takes the cake with an all-wood model.  Ni-i-ice.
