Matthew Sowter of Saffron Frameworks built a beautiful bi-lam frame for Cyclefit UK, the colour inspired by a '63 Buick:

We all love our lugged steel-framed bikes. But there’s nothing that can compare with a buttery-smooth, fillet brazed frame. Chris’ Road is the latest build from Massachusetts local Nao Tomii, whose predominantly fillet brazed portfolio demonstrates his fixation with files and calloused fingers.

If you know your x-heights from your em dashes, there’s a possibility you’ll recognize the name of the owner of this Pinarello Montello SL. His name is Abi Huynh—a typographer and designer of exceptional skill. A browse through his portfolio demonstrates his acute ability to drop words on a page using the most legible layouts, so it’s no surprise that his pristine Pinny shares the same respect for clean lines and white space.

The story behind Hojmark Cycles‘ brand identity recently made the rounds of the world’s great graphic design blogs, with good reason. Ineo Designlab, a Danish studio, created a logotype and stationery inspired by the latent forms of lugs and tubes before they’re assembled, resulting in an ID that summarizes Hojmark’s appreciation for craft. Hojmark Cycles regularly collaborate with Germany’s Moulinette Bicycles on frames and bikes that are half vehicles and half artworks.

Portland-based Vendetta Cycles. Gorgeous lugs, right on the line of beautiful but not overly ornate.

Hello pretty down tube shifters

Sweet tube shifter

Paolo removed the brake and pump bosses, and built up a pair of wooden Ghisallo rims with vintage Sturmey Archer hubs—the front is a dynamo with internal wiring inside the fork leg. The rear is a coaster brake, three speed internal number, toggled by a Sturmey shifter. The cable roller is interesting, and adds a new dimension to the classic silhouette. In keeping with the standard of the time, Paolo sourced a NOS pair of whitewall Clement tires.

Dave Moulton's Blog. I don't shift often, and have always liked the look of down-tube shifters.

Not sure how I feel about chrome lugs, but this combo is amazing.

Lugs. Definitely lugs.
