These photos were taken from an Obree fanatic’s tumblr spot and as you go through his pages you’ll just how much of a fanatic he is. The guy is an absolute genius and you too will believe this once you see what he himself has built.

Spotted on my flickr stream this morning and I couldn’t resist having a further look. All I can say is: Clean!
Believe it or not, this Rossin pursuit actually started out as a road frame. It came into possession of the talented and dedicated designer/artist/fabricator named Olli Erkkila, and he was inspired to recreate it as a lo-pro… read more
Whether or not this bike is a hack-job, it looks absolutely rad as f***ing hell and I have to give big shouts to Oli, the brain behind such a killer machine.

What an absolute pearl of a bicycle and made out of custom drawn aero ( Christ I have used that word a few times today havn’t I? ) steel tubing too. Damn!
