January 25, 2014


I have collected everything out of the ordinary: racing bikes with fine details; folding bikes with strikingly clever mechanisms—or those that fail in a particularly magnificent way; touring bikes produced with particular care; racing bikes without brakes that are reduced to pure speed. Below is a roundup of a few of my favorites, some of which cannot be allocated to any particular category.  

Richard Sapper’s Zoombike



Alexander Moulton's  Moulton Bicycles
