Lately, I’ve been taking pictures of people posing with their bikes. These cyclists seem to put a lot of love and care into their pedaling machines—from the paint jobs, to quirky components to customization. I’m the same way about my vintage Mondonico, so can understand the lengths people go to in order to keep their bikes pretty. Here’s some of my recent photos. And beware, I’m hunting more of you down.

This is my friend Loren with his beautiful Scapin.

Intricate Scapin stamping details.

I ran into this girl, Kara Kersey, in front of Berkeley High. She rebuilt and painted this Ross, making it single-speed.

I ran into this cyclist at the Tour de Taco with his beautiful vintage Cinelli.

He installed this conveniently-located water bottle holder.
