Time To Share Some Of My Other Sides

Matchbox MINI - Go Bike Shop

As strange as it might seem, I actually have a few other interests outside of bicycling. I’ve even shared when a couple of those worlds come together. What I really like is when three of those interest cross over at the same time.

This little guy is a Matchbox Mini Cooper Van that’s been painted to represent a fictional bike store called “Go Bike Shop”. It designates my love for bicycling, my fascination with MINI Coopers and the enjoyment I get from collecting diecast toys.

Cooper Bikes: Single Speed Street Bike

with 4 comments

I first saw this announcement on Motoring Underground.

For those of you who love MINI Coopers and like to spin on a bicycle, then Cooper Bikes is for you. Their site isn’t up yet, and the anticipation is killing me.

There’s more information at the Bike Rumor site.

Apparently, they may be overpriced for what you get, but the idea of merging two of my favorite worlds is pretty interesting.

UPDATE: Their site is up. Read here.
