Objects of Desire

The Biomega Brooklyn is almost as far removed from practical as The Prisoner's penny farthing bicycle. I’ve never been inclined to let little things like practicality muddy my attraction to beautiful design so nevermind the likelihood that I'll be the oldest person on the planet putzing around on an über cool bmx-style bike. Anyhow. I'm especially fond of the matte finish, institutional colors, and mechanical simplicity (just one gear). While the Brooklyn has been featured on Biomega's website for several years, its actual availability (in the U.S. anyway) is, the last time I checked, still limited.
