I just saw a girl biking down market in a short skirt with garters and thigh highs. Yowza! It was pretty ridiculously hot, combining two of my favorite things, but it would've been even hotter if she was a half competent cyclist.

BTW FYI tiny hard saddles are totally correct for racing bikes but don't really make a ton of sense for city riding. For one thing, the reason they have no padding is because it's assumed that you will wear bike shorts that have the padding built into the shorts. If you are doing city riding in street clothes, you should have a saddle with a bit of padding. This is one of those cases where people think they are cool for using the more "hard core" component without understanding its function and appropriate use.
