Eric Estlund of Winter Bicycles is the vice-president of the Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association and with the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show coming up on the 28-29th of September, he must be a busy man, but he still manages to find the time to create wonderful bicycles, like La Balade.

The name ‘Winter Bicycles’ is somewhat deceiving, because Eric builds bikes designed to be ridden in any season. He has been working on a series of randonneur frames lately, like this one, titled Discoteca, because it’s going to get ridden all day and all night.
After nearly twenty-two years since it was released, Cannondale‘s 3.0 Series Track bike is still one of the most popular models from its entire catalog. Perhaps its because the uncluttered lines of the track frame is the best to admire their trademark oversized aluminium tubes.
Fashion designer Marc Jacobs leads a pretty charmed life, to say the least. Born in 1963, he’s the head designer for his own fashion house, has been the creative director of Louis Vuitton since 1997, made Time magazine’s “2010 Time 100″ list of the 100 most influential people in the world and has recently been named the new creative director for Diet Coke. So it’s about time he included a bamboo bike in the ‘Special Items‘ chapter of his new lookbook.
