Did someone say mid-century modern, French-influenced, and pop-up store? Count us in.

Just in time for Pasadena Bike Week, Linus Bike, a retro-cool line of city bikes headquartered on Abbot Kinney in Venice, launched a new store in Old Pasadena.

The streamlined frames harken back to the "golden era" of 50's and 60's French bicycle design but with the comforts of modern technology, making for a much smoother ride than a bulky beach cruiser. And, according to the Linus Bikes website, when you ride one you feel like you're in an old French movie! C'est magnifique!

The basic model "Roadster Classic" starts at $449, and equally stylish accoutrements like the mid-century alloy bell and wicker baskets, are also impressive.
