The wind blowing your plastic streamers. The sweet smell of asphalt- burned rubber. The shrill brrring of your shiny silver bell.
And, most satisfying, the subtle shade of green the kids next door turned at the sight of your tricked-out bike.
Recapture your past glory with the iXi bicycle. Unlike your old model’s gizmos, iXi’s charms are very adult: small wheels, an adjustable seat, and a lightweight aluminum frame. And instead of the traditional greasy chain, iXi uses a rubber belt, which means your pristine Theory pant cuffs will stay that way.
Each comes with a rain poncho and tire-repair kit, both of which can be stashed under the seat or inside the main frame. For further customization, choose the BreakAway for its easy-to-dismantle frame (great for storage) or add on cupholders, backpacks, seat bags, and key chains. There’s even a bell.
Wait till the kids next door get a load of this one.
