Top 10 finds: ladie$ bikes and boards under $200 in Brooklyn

There is nothing spunkier than seeing a lady hop on a bicycle or zip by you on her skateboard. As a male dominated hobby and sport, ladies tend to shy away from biking and skating to keep up with their feminine image. However, after speaking with several successful guys around the city, it appears that seeing a lady on wheels often times exhibits confidence (the, "I don't care if I am the only girl doing this," vibe), social awareness (riding is good for the environment), independence (yes, I can take myself to the library myself, thanks), and just overall coolness.

(Some guys also noted that riding a bike or skateboarding also delicately tones the thighs, gluts, and calve muscles).

So, to further encourage ladies to maximize their mobility rights and to give NY guys a run (or skate) for their money, I have decided to post the ten best craigslist.com finds of vintage ladies bikes and skateboards for sale in Brooklyn under $200.00. If you find anymore or are selling a bike or board, please post the information of the wheels and the price, along with the sellers contact information under the comment section.

Don't forget to e-mail me at afrospunky@yahoo.com. Thanks and happy riding ladies!
