Bicycle clips

My one-woman mission to make bicycle clips the height of fashion among London's cycling fashionistas is not going well. And really, where's the inspiration? Black and functional, but definitely not chic.

I bought these originally because my Dad used to have some the same, I remember him putting one foot up on the step stool at home and clipping his suit trousers down before he went off to work. Somehow with formal trousers they look right - jeans though, not so much.

I think I may have been finally possessed by complete bonkers-dom. Even I doubt the sanity of making knitted covers for my bicycle clips. And then to top them off with pom-poms in an homage to yokoo? Is that my marble over there...?
