Ross Polobike Girl's Banana Seat Bike - Blue

A blue floral conundrum

It has a white basket with flowers. And a chainguard with flowers. And a banana seat with flowers.

So why does this Ross Polobike girl's banana seat bike look so boyish?

I say it's the color. Blue with mean-looking black tires. Even the lack of a top tube doesn't make it that much more girlish.

And the graphics are very serious. The word "ROSS" on the fork might as well be carved into a granite monument somewhere.

The flowers are more "pop-art" than "little girl". And the rusty chain, though it's certainly not Ross's fault, doesn't help.

So we have a boyishly blue bike with adult graphics and black tires. And a basket. With flowers on it.

Some little girl probably owned this thing. But I doubt if she liked it all that much.
