    With a last name like Devotion, we expect your day job to be pretty spectacular. Priest maybe, or school-teacher. Good thing then, that Matthew Devotion, proprietor of bike shop Cicli Devotion, is as devoted to bicycles as Britney Spears to bad footwear choices. At his Brooklyn-based workshop, the cycling master and collector has channeled his encyclopedic knowledge and tight skills with the two-wheelers into a sort of consultancy business—his tag-line, "classic racing bicycles & components bought, sold and refurbished," is somewhat enigmatic. Let's just call him the bike whisperer. Luckily, Devotion opened up his space to photog John Prolly, who posted over 20 drool-worthy snaps on Prolly Is Not Probably. The result is bike porn in the extreme—spare parts, works-in-progress, patches, and, vintage posters. Oh, and did we mention the half-naked (NSFW) pin-up girl calendars? Porny indeed.

    Score central! Devotion captioned all of the snaps, just for us. So click through—even if you're not a bicycle fanatic, we think they will ring your (bike) bell.

The home is big, beautiful, and read
