Globe Bicycles – Specialized.

I first heard of these bikes through Bike Hugger. Apparently, Specialized has had this name for a while and recently decide to make it a separate brand.

All the bikes look great, but I find myself attracted to the Roll in Kiwi Green.

The Dutch Master by Core77

leave a comment »

I just saw this on the Daily Heller – a graphic design blog that happened to be writing about bikes today.

I’m a huge fan of custom build bikes and my goal is to own one someday (after I win the lotto, right?). The Heller post lead me to the Core77 Magazine site where they were introducing the Dutch Master, a limited edition of 25 hand built bikes by KT Higgins, former bike messenger, now mechanic and owner of Bushwick Bike Shop. The frame is based on the Worksman cruiser frame. Check out the specs on this bad boy.

Pretty nice, but $1560.00 is a bit out of my price range. However, if you’ve got the cash, the components alone are worth the asking price. Put them all together and you’ve got this beautiful work of art any cyclist would be proud to own.

The Dutch Master is a tribute to the New York bike culture. I think it looks fantastic and would love to take one for a spin some day.
