Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

ANT Bikes Copper and Wood

Mike Flanagan of ANT Bikes makes some extraordinary beautiful bikes. In fact, my Truss Bridge Bike was inspired by one he created and my unwillingness to pay $2,000 plus dollars for an authentic ANT Bike.

Below is one of Mike's latest creations. Mike combines wood, copper plated lugs and leather to create this classic vintage fixed gear bike. Beauty can be found in the details. I love the vintage front brake, leather Brooks Saddle and Bell located just behind the saddle. Mike went all out with Phil Wood Hubs and wood rims. The custom stem/handlebar combo matches perfectly with the overall look and keeps the lines clean and simple.
