Toronto-based company reCycledride takes refurbished bike parts and gives them new life -- in the form of a beautifully hip new ride named Phantom. Being reCycledride's newest addition, the Phantom revives a vintage Peugeot frame made in France and refurbished bottom bracket bearings. reCycledride hand-fixes details like the bike's gears to assure quality. The phantom is finished off with a high-quality Brooks B17 saddle and rustic gold handlebars -- bringing together several parts into one stylish piece.

The Phantom focuses on the simplicity of joy-riding a bicycle around town, in style. Its thick white-rimmed wheels and white frame complement the gold handlebars well. It can be difficult to find a bicycle that's also a statement piece, but the Phantom is one-of-a-kind with a eco-friendly aspect. reCycledride also takes customized orders for those who have specific requests.
