Bike Cult Show
Bike Cult Show presented a gallery of beautiful bicycles in Brooklyn over 2013 Labor Day weekend. Exhibitors included some of the finest artisans of custom hand-crafted bicycles from NYC and elsewhere. Makers displayed their brand of made-to-order cycling machines, using a variety of materials and methods, where cliches like form vs. function, the genius in the details and 10,000 hours practice surely apply.
That the bicycle has come to be so cool is no fault of its own. The world's most efficient vehicle is not only about self-propelled transport and synergistic fun and freedom, it's also profoundly aesthetic as a personal fashion statement embodied with wheels.
