Cashmere commuters (Curbside Cycle’s term for riders who’d rather not ruffle their suits on a greasy two-wheeler) don’t always get respect from bike shop boys and girls. “Wouldn’t you rather ride something more practical?” they say as we slobber over beautiful but hefty cruisers. “No, thanks,” we respond, “and just to stick it to you cycling killjoys, we’re going to drop $4,500 on the new Nihola model at Curbside (412 Bloor West, 416-920-4933, www.curbsidecycle.com.)” It’s plenty practical, with a car-trunk-sized front bin perfect for stashing a weekend’s worth of errands plus the kids. Also, the king of Denmark rides one, so there!
