Gold Cycle One by Nikolaus Hartl was specifically designed for the large courier firm 'Goldencycle' based in New York. The design breaks down the bike to its minimalist form, but also throws in some opulence through the use of gold anodized sections.

Any courier cruising down the lanes with this bike is sure to get noticed. Other than the gold features, the rest of the design uses a matte black coloring, keeping with a very classy aesthetic. Moreover, extensive testing was done for each part of the bike to ensure it was safe and could also provide the best performance for the rider. Considering these people are going through the streets of New York at excessive speeds, safety and efficiency are two important components of this design. Photo Credits: designboom,
