It’s easy for us, as fans of beautiful bicycles, to view them as artistic expressions: they were originally base materials and through the skill and dexterity of the frame builder they have become sculptural, functional objects that are pleasing to the eye. It’s especially easy to draw those correlations between the work the work of Thomas Callahan of Horse Cycles, he’s also an exhibiting installation artist, painter and designer.
Like the Horse Cycles Track frame featured on Cycle EXIF last September, the Road frame is constructed from tig welded Columbus Life, and features the same integrated seat post. Thomas’s eye for design is evident in the finish; the gloss black typography is a stark contrast against the matte black background. Quite the dark horse.
