Icon – Puma Pico
I thought Puma made sports clothing?
Right you are, but as you can see, they make bikes too. And this isn't even the first – do you remember the glow in the dark one?
Looks a bit like the one E.T. went for a ride in...
Ah, you've spotted the integrated basket/handlebars. Our interplanetary friend would have had a better ride on the front of this steed. The Pico is designed to mix the nippy handling of a BMX with the convenience of a town bike. So that means you also get that canny basket, plus disc brakes and a handful of gears to help you conquer the hill by the supermarket without giving yourself a hernia.
So you want £670 for a BMX with a basket?
Alright Thrifty Theodore, so it might not be the cheapest town bike, but it's definitely one of the coolest. Oh, and it might be worth putting a few squids aside for a decent lock too...
