Paconi Sparkle Road

There were some amazing bikes in Adelaide in January for the 2015 Tour Down Under. I’m not talking about the carbon fibre squads of team bikes — you could’ve seen those in any mainstream publication or local bike shop.<p>While the final criterium stage looped around the town centre, the Swap Meet in …

If there’s such a thing as too safe, then The Proviz REFLECT360 cycling jacket takes you there. It seems to glow white when light hits it – the whole …

House Industries Velo Collection

Delaware’s House Industries recently made the headlines with the marvellous branding work they created for Richard Sachs and his cyclocross team, and his retrospective exhibition that was held at Rapha’s New York Cycle Club.<p>Riding high on that wave, the type foundry have just released <i>Velo</i>, a …

Caletti Cycles Ti Road

Artists are brave people. Not all of us has the guts to display on white walls what goes on inside our imaginations. It’s an interesting exercise to visualise their images coming to life and moving — that’s what’s happening inside their heads.<p>It’s even more interesting when their creativity extends …

Colossi Rambler Road

With the myriad of options for frames, accessories and apparel out there, it can be very daunting for a new cyclist to know which is going to be a worthwhile investment — or a stash of cash and time down the drain. Sydney’s Chris Deal was fortunate enough to have a brother-in-law who knows his way …

Donhou Bicycles Signature Steel

It was a privilege to be able to visit Tom Donhou in his workshop earlier this year on a holiday that coincided with the 2014 Tour de France <i>Grand Depart</i>. Tom allowed me to photograph a project that he’d been working on, but these official photos give a much more accurate representation of just how …

Review: Wheelworks Rail 52

<i>By guest writer Richard Gearing.</i> The road bike wheel market is a veritable minefield at the moment — options range from below $300 to far beyond $3000; from box section aluminium to deep section carbon; from narrow, ‘old format’ widths to the current crop of rims as wide as 26mm; and now there’s …

Jonathan's Primate Frames Road

For Aussie fans of the custom bicycle, the name of Tarn Mott and Primate Frames is synonymous with big, burly and innovative frames. Tarn is a big guy himself, ably suited to bending steel with his bare hands, and his road frames are just as capable of dropping down the side of a mountain as they …

Vanilla Speedvagen Cyclocross

Spring has sprung in Sydney, after one of the wettest winters in memory. Muddy conditions, however, are favoured for cyclocross racing, which is becoming more popular in Australia with every passing season. This Vanilla Speedvagen is a recent import and will be making the rounds at ensuing …

Richard Sachs at Rapha NYC

Any New York cyclist interested in the custom bike scene should make a special point of dropping by the Rapha Cycle Club over the next month. Tomorrow, the 23rd of August, their doors will open on an exhibition celebrating the life and career (thus far) of Richard Sachs — curated by House …

Signal Cycles 'Cross Grinder

Is it a cyclocrosser? Is it a commuter? An all-roader? A ‘gravel grinder’? Come to think of it, the only things missing from the latest Signal Cycle are S&S couplers, which would turn it into the ultimate travel bike — for the discerning touring-adventuring-‘cross racer.<p>Portland’s Signal Cycles are …

Oregon Manifest 2014: TEAGUE x Sizemore

Taylor Sizemore’s entry for the 2014 Oregon Manifest competition is a quantum leap from his 2011 entry, which was closer to a traditional porteur. Only five US cities were represented in this year’s competition: five design houses teamed up with a local builder to produce the ultimate urban utility …

TEASER: Donhou Bicycles Signature Steel

During my recent visit to the United Kingdom, I swung by the workshop of Tom Donhou, in London’s Hackney Wick. It’s been a real pleasure profiling Tom’s work on Cycle EXIF over the last few years, so it was particularly awesome to visit him and see inside the space where he creates such amazing …

Victoire Cycles City Bike

Taking inspiration from a townie with double seat stays that Tom Donhou built a while back, Victoire Cycles constructed this gentleman’s bike with a similar arrangement. It’s a one-off custom frame, just all part of the service from the Clermont-Ferrand workshop.<p>Jacques works at a public relations …

Big Forest Frameworks XL3

If you’re struck by the individual nature of the lugs on this green road machine, Robert Piontek of Potsdam’s Big Forest Frameworks broke the process down to an easy-to-digest mouthful on YouTube for your edification. The smiley face is a necessary decoration, for it shows off Robert’s contagious …

Flint Custom Cycles Road

The dust from the 2014 Tour de France has just settled, and most Australian followers of the World’s Greatest Bicycle Race have managed to get back to a normal sleep routine, but the next grand tour that I’m looking forward to is the 2015 Tour Down Under. Not just for the visiting racers, but to …

Royal H Cycles Constructeur

Even Bryan Hollingsworth of Royal H Cycles admits this was a BIG PROJECT. For any framebuilder, attempting to replicate the work of masters such as Alex Singer and René Herse entails a dedication and perseverance that instills a deep respect for their craft.<p>For his customer, Tom, Bryan built an …

Ciöcc San Cristobal Gold

Giovanni Pelizzoli‘s <i>Ciöcc</i> marque is an exceptionally enigmatic Italian brand, typical of many from that period and location. Accurate information on the history, timeline and genealogy is mercurial — indeed, the one person who knows the true story may well be Giovanni himself. Although I’d like to …
