Fizik Antares: Golden Gate

Franco had a beautiful frame built by Kirk Frameworks and then sent it to Italy for a Dario Pegoretti paint job. Living in San Francisco, Franco settled on the Golden Gate bridge as a reference for both the frame paint and the leatherwork. The leather take its cue from the patterns created by the rivets in the bridge's construction. It was a wonderful brief and a pleasure working with Franco on evolving the saddle and bar tape designs. The bike is currently being built by Above Category.
