far out!

Love it Love it Love it! this bike is SICK! Wow. The custom leather is beyond amazing. My new favorite bike on Velospace.


too short? or are you running 28s or something that would prevent you from pushing your rear wheel farther forward? i think toe overlap on something like this with such relaxed angles and all would be pretty annoying. should have just gotten a kilo tt.

Thanks for all the comments

Hi, can you name the shop

can you name the shop you have bought this rack, or do you know a way for me, sitting here in germany, to get one or maybe more of them. I really love the look of them and i searched so long for those porteur racks.
By the way, your bike's fantastic!!!!

Yeah !!!

You know ... ;)


A true masterpiece, if ever I saw one! And for 200 euros!

Amazing. If Hermès made

Amazing. If Hermès made bikes, I imagine they would look like this. I especially like the hip flask. Proper hydration is so important! ;)
