GEAR | Scout Regalia Bicycle


I felt like Fran Drescher when I saw this bike today because at first glance I slowly, and with increasing volume, said: Oh. MY. GAWD. And because I have a little cold, it was kind of nasaly too. Is this not one of the best looking bikes you've ever seen!?

The Scout Regalia Bicycle ($3900, pre-orders being taken for Spring 2013 delivery) takes its cues from three distinct bicycle typologies: a mixte bike (which we've discussed on this blog before), English-Dutch town bike, and a mountain bike. It's designed by the Echo Park (Los Angeles)-based design studio, Scout Regalia, and made in the U.S.A.

Because I don't have 4000 clams to spend on a bike, I may get my Scout Regalia fix in December—they make Gingerbread Geodesic Dome kits ($25) for all your edible holiday architectural needs. Bikes, gingerbread domes...this company gets me.

Genius! I love the colour of the second one, as well as that navy bag. It'll have to stay on the lust list, though.

Helluva lot cheaper than car lust ..

I don't have a bike, and when I did I hardly ever rode it. BUT, somehow this feels like it'd be worth the $4,000, if I had it to burn. Love them both, but the red takes it for me-it's the perfect shade. Want!

Love the bike! Just to clarify, a mixte refers to a bike *specifically* with the pair of lateral tubes. Not all ladies, step-through bikes are mixtes. I say this as a proud mixte owner :)

I think you mean Janice from Friends, not Fran Drescher
