Before we start, let’s get one thing clear. This bike is gorgeous – probably the most beautiful creation on this list. The frame shape and colours (or lack thereof) are the obvious eye-catchers, but look closely at the integrated chainguide, sinister paintwork and overall build quality.
You can see a lot of love has gone into this bike. When you ride it you get continuous looks of admiration from anyone you pass. It’s a fact that people will buy a bike based on how it looks and you can’t really blame them when you see something like this in the flesh.
If this bike is a fashion accessory though, it’s the kind you’d wear for a Saturday-night-on-the-town, not your Sunday best. Long, low and slack, this bike knows how to party. This is perhaps best illustrated by its geometry settings – low and extra low. After all, who ever uses the ‘high’ settings found on other bikes? You may think this is a “the numbers all go up to eleven” situation, but when the extra low setting has you commanding a 64.8 degree head angle, you start to think they may have named it right.
