The latest bike from Valencia, Spain based StandBikeMe is Don Bicicleta, a gentlebike with tones of personality and a cool mustache.” Don Bicileta looks great, but it is not exactly a new bike. The 30 year old Orbea mixte frame was repurposed by the folks at StandBikeMe into a hip and very unique urban bike. They explain that the mission of their project is to “rescue and customize old and forgotten bicycles.” After an interview process with a potential customer, they create a new design based on a recycled older frame, and build it according his or her tastes, preferences, and measurements. Trends in art, design, and architecture are all considered to create their one of a kind handmade custom creations…or re-creations
To find out more about this bike and to see some of their previous projects, like 25 seen below, check out the StandBikeMe blog (in Spanish). You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (which is where I first spotted the mustached face of Don Bicileta).
