The start of the Tour de France tomorrow in Rotterdam – The Netherlands is a good occasion to talk about bicycles again.
Based in New York City designer Francesco Bertelli makes wonderful pure, clean, old-fashion bicycles (track bikes and fixed gear only). Every single part is assembled by hand, finished and fine-tuned by Bertelli himself.
“I combine brand new parts with “new old stock” and vintage parts found at flea markets, old bikeshops, collectors and from my trustworthy suppliers.” The result of each project is a unique bicycle you won’t find anywhere else.
I would like to highlight the Domenica Sport. Cool Nitto dropbars on a Belgium made Titan stem, a black Alien track frame, chrome straight fork and silver wheelset. The slick Gran Compe SS White tires and England made swallow Wrights W3SW saddle make this masterpiece complete.
