Biking season is in full effect and that might mean updating your cycle game; if so, I suggest you look no further than Bertelli Biciclette Assemblate for your new bicycle. These custom and minimalist cycles are works of art that will not only take you from point A to point B, they'll also do so in style.

Founded by Francesco Bertelli, the Bertelli Biciclette Assemblate workshop is based in New York City. There, Bertelli builds one-of-a-kind bikes using dead stock and vintage parts. He even collaborated with Norwegian track frame manufacturers Viking to produce his own frame variation in a custom anthracite colorway.

With strict guidelines, Bertelli Biciclette Assemblate uses only classically lugged steel frames with track geometry, quill stems, chrome forks and vintage cranksets, which are often accented with leather and wood pieces.
