A Fashionable Handcrafted Bicycle


A display window at Stackpole's, a Hartford clothing store, shows a handcrafted bicycle.
This is a "Haute" road bicycle, made in Colchester by MSH1, a bespoke bike manufacturer.

Tomorrow, visit the City Daily Photo portal to see photographers' interpretations of
the monthly theme, "bicycle."  And, today, visit James' website Weekend Reflections
to see other photographers' images with reflections.

Great choice and a reminder to me to remember theme day

Very nice Jack.

Karl Demetz said...

Wow, you gave me a super idea with this picture, Jack !
But I will it not reveal you, not yet...
It is a beautiful bicycle, but even more I like the reflections.

I think the person reflected in the photo is far more interesting than the one in the poster. I like the sleekness of the bike, but the seat looks a mite uncomfortable.

Birdman said...

Ya, this one looks all for show. That seat... ouch and ouch again.

James said...

Nice shot! Wonderfully composed with you surrounded by the posters and the bicycle.

Sylvia K said...

Great, fun captures for the day, Jack!! It is a sleek looking bike, but not too comfortable for this old broad I'm afraid!! Hope you have a terrific weekend! Enjoy and stay cool!!

William Kendall said...

This one does look very sleek.

I love this shot, Jack! Especially with the photographer there in the middle.

This is super, Jack!

Beautiful bike! Who's that tall guy taking the photo? :-)

That looks a seriously uncomfortable bicycle; You wouldn't want to ride it over cobbles!

A very classy bicycle Jack .... just need to saw off that top bar off, throw a scarf around my neck & I'd be pedalling down the highway !!

Taken For Granted said...

That is one terrific looking road bike. My only problem with a great bike like that is the motor. Also this photo reflects well on you.

Randy said...
