DONHOU

June 22, 2014



According to Thomas Donhou, this bike's vintage design was inspired by an antique bracelet belonging to the customer in Berlin. Bi-laminate joints hold the frame together and the structural solidity lost by dropping the top tube is compensated for by the double seat-stays, which 'take inspiration from the art deco period'. The brake cables are hidden within the frame and the chain guard and gear shifter were hand-made by Donhou, whose name is visible in the artistic metalwork.
