the bike i eventually want to build: brother cycles flâneur



(via cycle exif)
yeah i know this is a singlespeed and blah blah blah, but at the end of the day, i want to have something like this in my collection. let's start with the name: flâneur. there's no english word for flâneur, but to put it in modern laymens terms it means "mysterious strolling/drifting dude that strolls/drifts because he or she has the time and money to do that shit." the reason why i love this bike is because of the details, and you should know i'm a sucker for really small details. i love how this holds a classic look while having campy veloce brakes and h plus son archetype wheels. i love the hand stitched leather on the bars, and the contrasting english racing green (i love english racing green). one day i'll have something like this. but for now i'll just oogle eye the crap out of the photoset here.
