It's extremely tough to look cool while biking, what with the spandex, the helmet, and the being Floyd Landis. At least now the bike itself can look badass, with Re-Cycle Art Aspen.
A new-to-the-scene online shop/Aspen Farmer's Market outlet, Cycle's a one man pedal-pushing operation crafting two-wheeled treasures from rare vintage bikes which've been lovingly taken apart/cleaned/messed with, all run by a guy whose previous job was building Victorian homes in DC, before stumbling on a field where his drafting was actually admired.
Currently-made sweetness includes:
A rare Italian OLMO Time Trial orange funny bike with a lugged steel frame, a Campagnolo Record 42t vintage crankset, Ourey orange grips, and a Velo Orange Moderniste bottle cage, which questions the very notion that a water bottle can be caged.
A 1972 Fuji called the "Get Out and Vote Finest", with a chrome-plated frame and Obama spoke-cards, but not cards Obama spoke from -- dude doesn't even use a teleprompter! Change!
A surprisingly non-German Volkscycle Mark XX with Michelin Dynamic 700c x 32 tires, a Bridgestone frame painted in "Bomber Orange Sparkle", and silver Origin8 Urban Riser handlebars, which prove even the mustache'd can make a better life for themselves if they stay in school.
In addition to his ready-made stable, Cycle's also more than happy to restore/transform your vintage bike (for a cool three-hundo) by disassembling/greasing/buffing/etc to make it good as new, just like Landis' rep. Right? He said he was sorry.
