Horsey Bike Ornament

Bicycles: incredibly popular in eastern Asia and among thick-bespectacled, do-nothing hipsters in urban America and Canada (and, of course, the French, non?).

In Europe and Asia, most cyclists choose economical bikes to get them to and fro. Hipsters, however, use their bicycle as a status symbol because a $1000 car isn’t very chic. A $1000 cotton candy pink road bike that has no brakes and no gears? That tells the world something about you. Probably that your parents divorced when you were young, but whatever.

Soon, everyone can draw plenty of attention to their bike, whether it’s a baby blue Le Prince Bicyclette or your mom’s cream Schwinn. Korean designer Eungi Kim has designed this Horsey Bike Ornament for the Seoul Cycle Design Competition. Neeehhh! Though not yet available for mass consumption, I will sleep easy knowing that a pack of fauxhemians in my own urban area will be flying down the street together, all brandishing these like some sort of limp-wristed James Gang.
