Designers have tackled the bicycle to make it more efficient, good-looking and modern, yet the WLWC Crocodile-Wrapped Fixie is perhaps one of the first that endeavors to make it look luxurious. Although there are some very expensive bikes out there, this is one of the first (if not the first) that focuses on the price tag by highlighting the type of materials used.

Wrapped in black leather, the WLWC Crocodile-Wrapped Fixie is released hot on the heels of the French artisan brand's crocodile-covered skateboard. Taking sporty products and elevating them to a slightly impractical level, Watch Life With Curiosity is encouraging people to look at their everyday objects with fresh eyes. Four crocodile skins (aged eight to 10 years) were used to clad the frame, handlebar, saddle, handle brakes and footrests.
