Mr Newton’s Bike Girls

Mr Newton is a New York City fashion photographer who gets around on a marvelous old blue mixte frame bike. “Yeah, it’s a girls bike – so what?” he writes. “I paid $70 for it at the Hester Street Flea.”

San Francisco bike people may think Mr Newton’s blue bike looks a lot like Meli’s wonderful blue bike or Reese’s mixte frame blue bike (which I can’t find a photo of at the moment!)

The below is not a photo of Mr Newton or his bicycle — they’re photos by Mr Newton (and republished here with his very kind permission). Isn’t that puppy in the basket adorable?
