I’m a little late to the party on National Bike Month, but like they say “Better late than never”. Yesterday I posted a little thing about “Bikes By Me” and today I want to extend that with a post about the way cool bikes from Creme Cycles.
These bikes look so amazing, and the range of products is fantastic with everything from fixed gear performance bikes to retro styled cruisers. Three of my favorites that Creme makes are Vinyl, the fixed gear minimalist racer, HolyMoly the European styled street bike that looks like it just rolled off the streets of Amsterdam, and Glider, a retro styled beach cruiser.
Vinyl features a high performance cromoly frame with lost wax dropouts and lugs. The frame is built using double butted Tange tube, sand is equipped with a San Marco Rolls leather saddle, polished high profile rims, sealed bearing Novatec hubs and forged cranks. Vinyl also features Dia Compe stainless steel cable guides that you can mount when using brakes, but will leave the frame completely clean when the bike is built brakeless.
Holymoly’s design is influenced by classic Dutch bikes, with a lugged frame and great care to details giving this bike a decisive retro feel. The bike has a completely upright position, that gives you an excellent field of vision and unobstructed view of the road and your surroundings.
Glider is a comfortable, bike that like a clean rugged look. This is a bike for people who use a bike for casual riding on a bike path or around the neighborhood. The bike has no fenders which means it is easy to transport in a car and easier to carry up and down stairs. Glider is available as a single speed or 3 speed.
