Electra Blanc et Noir
Tracey Bradnan works on marketing and events for Century Cycles, mostly out of the Rocky River store. Her husband, Jerry, surprised her with an Electra Blanc et Noir cruiser bicycle for her birthday - a bike so pretty, she actually displayed it inside her house for the rest of that winter! Tracey uses her Electra cruiser for around-town riding - biking to school with her son, going to the library and out to lunch, and riding with friends. In fact, her cruiser love is so contagious that there is now a cruiser gang on her Bay Village street -- her husband Jerry now rides an Electra Straight 8 and her neighbors bought Electras, too!
The Blanc et Noir comes so perfectly appointed with fenders and a ding-dong bell that Tracey hasn't had to add many components besides a handlebar basket - which usually carries lots of other things besides her bike helmet (blame the helmet lapse in this picture to a hurry to get to a TV reporter!). She is really looking forward to shopping the new Electra Zone in Rocky River for matching socks and replacing handlebar streamers she lost.
