Chanel City Bike

Chanel Bike: Would You Buy It?

In honor of my girl FabSugar covering everything that is Fashion Week, I wanted to add a little fashion to my site, with a sporty side of course.

Chanel recently launched a city bike that's bound to knock your socks off. This ergonomically designed, eight-speed bicycle could be the most fashionable bike in town. With a fashionable price to boot — this little baby will cost you around $12,000. Yikes.

Let's play pretend for minute. Say you had the money to splurge, would you dare buy this Chanel bike? (And no, it doesn't burn extra calories or anything like that, it's just a regular bike.)

Yes definitely! IF I were rich I'd throw on my cutest outfit and take this baby for a ride. It only be brought out for special occasions obviously and I probly wouldn't leave it locked up on the street, but for the occasional super pimpin' time out with my friends I'd definitely do it. Add it to the current collection. :-)

I love it! Freaked out when I saw it a month ago, and even wrote a blog entry about it!!! All my friends are into fixed gears, and riding $5,000 bikes. I'd show up on the Nelly (my little pet name for her) and rock it!

I think it's a VELORBIS ( a bicycle made in Holland which is all the rage...) dressed up in Chanel. I'll take a regular Velorbis, thanks. They usually retail around $1500 and last a lifetime....

Not a Huffy but my Felt is okay. That thing would be mocked mercilessly in Boulder (where there are plenty of expensive bikes but strictly for training purposes, lots of teams and things).

I live in Chicago and that bike would be stolen in a hearbeat! I like my $60 craigslist bike, thankyouverymuch!

Designer clothes - understandable. Better material/fabric, better workmanship, it's worth the price (sometimes). Designer bike?? There's no way that it's different from any other bike. The price is solely for the name and *that* is not worth it.

it's an adorable bike, i love how old-fashioned (kinda) it looks, however 12 grand is just not how much u pay 4 a bike.

12,000 gets you a lot of taxis in the city... or you could get a cheap car.

$12,000???? really? I've never owned a city bike over $50 (I buy used) and I went through like 5 of them. The most expensive bike I've ever SEEN was around $1000, and it sounded a bit more impressive than this one. Bikes are really easy to steal, so it's not that safe to invest $12,000 in one not knowing how long you'll actually have it.

the good thing is that i think this shows that being fit and environmentally friendly really is the new black!

I think these kinds of designer products are usually actually novelty products - ie not that many are sold, most are given away to people chanel want to have on their side (ie magazines, investors, executive employees). if anyone can get me the martin margiela guitar case so i can give it to my boyfriend for valentines that would be amazing!!! heehee

meh. it looks pretty blah to me. Now the chanel roller blades, on the other hand, were sooooo cute!!! Did anybody ever see those again? I saw them a few years ago in a magazine and then never again. . ..

Yikes 12 grand for a bike. That's like rent for 8 months. A pink Huffy will do just good ;)

12 grand is a car, not a bike. No thanks

I think it's sick, but I wouldn't throw down 12 grand on a bike.

No labels! If someone were to give it to me I'd take it a spray paint it matte black covering every logo.

I'd never waste money on something like that. I'd rather spend like, $3000 on a really, really great custom bike. Or a Precor elliptical or something like that.
