North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2007/ ahearne02

Ahearne mixte set up with one of his trademark assymmetrical rack designs.The rack itself is well centered and balanced, but within that shape, he drops in elements which are truly eye catching. This rack has his U-Lock slot as well. The California poppy is presented with an extra, open-top tube. This biccyle was to be a suprise gift for his girlfriend/fiance, who was flying in that evening. It has a very interesting treatment to the rear dropout, with the drop bar splitting into two arcs. It was a deep purple with what looked like just a hint of sparkle to it.
