Pereira Cycles Gent’s Bicycle

Pereira Cycles Gentlemans Bicycle

Allow me to present what could possibly be the ultimate in men’s urban bicycle transport: Pereira Cycle’s Gentlemen’s Bicycle. Constructed with the high level of detail that is now a trademark of Tony Pereira, it’s almost an insult to tag it with ‘Commuter’ and should be classified as exotic.

The Gentlemen’s Bicycle features an integrated U-Lock mechanism, and while New York natives may denounce this as insufficient security, a classically styled machine like this is more at home in a bike-friendly city like Portland, where Tony is based. The steering lock also doubles as a stabilizer while the bike is on the center stand — helpful while the luggage rack is being loaded and unloaded. Schmidt hubs power the front and rear lights, and the wiring has been nattily routed through the custom front rack.

As always, the spec sheet is top-notch: Shimano XTR brakes, Chris King headset, Brooks leather, and the lock unit is Kryptonite (the custom Pereira keyring is a nice touch). Tony has even had the pump painted to match the frame.

Another impeccable addition to the Pereira Cycle’s portfolio, which you can view on Tony’s website and flickr stream. Special thanks to Daniel Sharp for the fantastic photography.

    OMFG exotic is the most apt way to describe it.

    I love every single thing about this bicycle. Another work of art.

    Utterly beautiful, and so purely functional. I’m not sure about the lock – where does it go when it’s not being used?

    Anyone know what bar tape that is?

    Thanks all for the kind words. I build several bikes like this each year, but this one is my personal bike and has all the bells and whistles (well, maybe just the bells). The lock isn’t strictly practical in all situations–it doesn’t like crowded racks–but the way it stabilizes the bike is really useful.
    s-The lock shackle stashes in a pocket in the bag. Bag was custom made by Elias Grey of Lemolo Bags. He is a great guy and I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on a few projects. See more of his stuff here: http://lemolobags.wordpress.com/
    The bar tape is Fizik and it’s not really my favorite–kinda plastic feeling. I’ll be swapping it out for some perforated leather Brooks in the spring.
    I’m happy to answer any more questions. Fire away.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments. S, the lock stows in a pocket in the bag. Bag was custom made by Eli Grey at Lemolo Bags. He’s been great to work with. http://lemolobags.wordpress.com/ The bar tape is by Fizik. Not really my favorite stuff. It has a plastic feel. I’ll replace it with leather in the spring.

        Thanks Bob. The internet makes what I do possible, so I try to give back as much as I can. btw, I prefer “maker” to “manufacturer” (haha!)
