On the Radar: Bertelli Biciclette Assemblate, NYC.


From the website...
"Bici
is the italian slang for bike/bikes. Every Bertelli bicycle is a unique design object that you won't find in any store in New York City. I combine brand new parts with "new old stock" and vintage parts found at flea markets, old bikeshops, collectors and from my trustworthy suppliers.
Every part is assembled by hand, finished and fine-tuned by me, Francesco."

Totally beautiful bikes across the board. The price point's not too bad, either, considering the obvious care attention to detail that went into assembling them.

so he's not a frame builder? he just takes alien frames and the like and puts other parts on them for more money? people pay the guy to color coordinate for them?
