We discussed the Missoni for Target bicycle and it’s zany trademark zig-zag pattern here. In the comments of that post Justin Husman, local blogger and genuinely nice guy, offered to help assemble a local Missoni that came in a box.  So Claire asked for his assistance which he has now given.  Her bike is assembled and back in her possession. You can read Mr Husman’s thorough take on the Missoni here.

In short, other than a couple minor cosmetic concerns, Husman says the Missoni is a solid bike in the $400 price range.  He summarized:

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the bike to anyone that wants to ride, it’s fun and comfortable, and I’m sure will look great with some tall boots and a long skirt. Dress it up with a baguette, flowers, and a little dog and you will be the talk of the Critical Mass! I would also caution anyone who wants to buy this because it is limited to avoid paying a premium; much more than the MSRP of $400 is money poorly spent, in my opinion. You can get a nice Linus Mixte for $600 and that would be a much nicer bicycle, though not as limited.”

I’m planning to meet up with Claire soon to see it for myself and take some additional photos.  Until then drop by Husman’s The Plano Cyclist for more of his take on assembling and riding the Missoni.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
