Is there anything that secretly scares you? One of my biggest fears is riding a bike. I don't think I am a wimp when it comes to most sports and recreational activities - I am comfortable scuba diving with reef sharks, for example - but biking scares the bejeezus out of me. (I have known too many people who have had serious accidents, I guess!)
My irrational/rational fear doesn't stop me from loving bike style though. There is something so chic about getting dressed in your casual I'm-not-trying-too-hard best and biking around the city.
There is an amazing bike store in my neighborhood Adeline Adeline, which has the most gorgeous bikes. I'll show you the bike I would get if I could stop being such a chicken after the jump.
