Thought You Knew, ride a fucking bike!

Last week we reviewed the very straightforward Bike Taxi Babes calendar.

This week we go from the steamy southwest of Austin to brisk northern breeze of Chicago for our (we think) final people posting with bicycle calendar of 2011!

Bike Smut loves Chicago. Chicago is home to one of the last strong Critical Masses in the states. We got good peeps there and they have been doing great things for many years, before most people knew about fixed gears, polo or naked rides. (three things they still do extraordinarily well)

Introducing Thought You Knew a bike calender now in its 4th annual run.

Bike Smut, during its extended absence from North America, missed this year’s fundraising cycle, but we wanted to include it just the same.

It is little surprise that the ladies who grace the calendars ride strong and stylish bikes, and in stark contrast to the very minimal Taxi Babes calendar,  Thought You Knew has got a lot of extra stuff.

TyK offers a robust website with lots of pretty images, backgrounds on the models, pictures of them in their pinup mode and in their street ware. Oh, and they got some pretty hump-worthy politics:

Cycling once freed women from the strict requirements of fashion, providing an excuse to untie their corsets and don bloomers rather than long skirts. The mobility that a bicycle brought to those women was even more empowering.
TyK’s pinups draw on that same tradition of empowerment through the personal mobility, while also letting women find confidence in the ownership of their sexuality. The experience of being the center of attention during their photo shoot does not fade when the lights go down and the hairspray washes out. Each woman carries her pinup self with her wherever she goes, into board rooms or bike shops.

Its been a good Calendar season. If you haven’t ordered by now, you might be able to get a discount or you might be shit out of luck, or maybe you will just have to find some fun loving friends and a camera and D I the fuck Y.
