The Horsey Bike Ornament

Now, you know I get riled up about bicycle design from time to time and, I admit, I'm not the most reasonable person in the room when it comes to discussing the subject. So, in the case of the Horsey Bike Ornament (which has been shortlisted at the Seoul Cycle Design Competition, BTW), I will simply report. You can decide. This from the designer:
"horsey' is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one's bicycle look horsey! the 'horsey' package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws.the manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one’s needs. through this 'horsey' project. I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet."

  3. You should be thankful that you did not make a review on this one. Clearly, anyone that makes a statement remotely similarly to "...not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet." regarding a bicycle has got the crazies. Good call!
