I've been having a hard time deciding what my favorite bike for this years show is, but when it comes down to what bike is the best looking that's easy it's this one. I think this is the best looking project we've done ever.
The bike starts with a custom Parlee TT frame (Thanks Tom, Bob and the crew at Parlee.) Then it was sent to artist Geoff McFetridge. Geoff did an amazing job on it. I do want to note that there are no decals on this bike. Also there is no black paint on it, the black sections are nude, unpainted carbon. Geoff did this paint job entirely by hand and from what I understand it took a massive amount of time, and it looks like it did. The bike is fitted with a custom drilled Sturmey Archer 3 speed fixed gear hub (thanks David.)
Again we'd just like to take time to offer our most sincere thanks to Geoff. For anyone interested in knowing more about his work and his design studio, go to his website: http://championdontstop.com
I would like to note that Geoff is an artist and not a painter, please do not contact him about doing custom paint on your personal bike(unless budget is of no concern to you.)
For those of you in the NYC area, Geoff has a solo painting show opening at Half Gallery in NYC (208 Forsyth St. NYC) Tuesday Sept. 21, we encourage you to check it out.
Finished weight is 13.5 pounds.
