The Museum Of Arts And Design Presents The Dopest Bicycles Ever

Clearly, over here we're all about biking. So, we're counting down the days with mounting excitement for the Museum Of Arts And Design's (MAD) new exhibition, Bespoke: The Handbuilt Bicycle , opening up Thursday. Displaying the designs of six world-renown bicycle masters (who knew there was such a thing?), the show's got perhaps the coolest bikes ever. There's 21 hand-built bicycles that are part function, part works of art, with a range of contemporary models for every type of rider—fixed-gear, road racing, cyclocross, and commuter are all included. The epic exhibit is part of MAD Projects, a museum program that explores emerging trends and innovations in the design world. Look for Sacha White's tripping tricycle and Jeff Jones's super-futuristic titanium model. We suggest stopping by to get some major inspiration for summer cycling—we guarantee you'll definitely be the raddest roadster on the trail.
