every year i tell myself i’m going to buy a bike and explore brooklyn on two wheels, and every year i get terrified that i’m going to get hit by a car or chased down the street by an angry driver (the stories i’ve heard are crazy!). but this year the weather is too lovely not to give it a try. and these bikes might be just the thing i need to inspire me. stockholm based design studio note recently designed a series of bicycles in collaboration with italian bike producer abici. inspired by the colors of classic stockholm buildings, note created these bikes that combine classic frames with clean, modern colors. i’m tempted by the blood orange color (i’m always drawn to that color), but the white and black are perfectly classic, too. there is a great blue, olive green, purple, and yellow model as well, but you can check out more right here. abici bikes are distributed in the states and canada via fourth floor, so if you’d like to order an abici bike, shoot them an email to find a shop near you. thanks, cristiano!
