Let me tell you about this bike… It is a custom steel, belt-driven, 11 speed internal-hub, disc-brake, “super-commuter” inspired by and in tribute to The Life Aquatic by Wes Anderson. The frame was designed and built by John Caletti. The paint scheme was created by Peter Thomsen and deftly applied by Spectrum Powderworks.

All I can say was I am truly blown-away. The bike is a de facto piece of art. The translation from design to build is even better than I expected.
