Capricorn, a purveyor of steel bikes handcrafted by Minneapolis's Brad Wilson, now makes Duchamp and Selavy models intended to capture, natural, elegant Euro-style: "bikes on which you would never think to wear lycra." (Whether the designers at Capricorn are appraised of some of the truly awful shorts worn by males around European capitals these days is another matter). The Selavy features an easy-mount step-through frame for the ladies.

There is something a bit funny about naming a fully functioning bike after Duchamp, who went so far to deconstruct that conveyance into an icon of purposeless motion. Perhaps this only goes to show that with the avant-garde, what goes around, comes around.
