BNSYC Friday Fun Quiz!

As the Tour de France heads into the mountains and we head into the Saturday x Sunday "collabo" that is the weekend, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz. Please know that I have no intention of revealing which rider is in which "colorway" as of the conclusion of today's Tour stage, so you can rest assured this quiz is absolutely 100% Tour de France spoiler-free. It is also glatt kosher, vegan safe, and fair trade--though I cannot warrant that it is cruelty-free, nor is it completely NJS due to the 32-spoke wheels.

As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll see confirmation, and if you're wrong you'll see why Urban Outfitters is probably entering the "fixie" market at exactly the right time.

Thanks very much for reading, make safety the aesthetic centerpiece of your groupo, and avoid sidewalk riding and "twatcrusts" whenever possible.
