Gallery: Juri Zaech’s Typography Bike Frames Are Bent to Actually Spell...


Juri Zaech’s typographic bikes personalize your ride like no other. The frame of each bike is bent and painted to spell out your name, resulting in what appears to be a floating cursive type set between the wheels. Yes, they look like they would need to be made of titanium to survive real life abuse, but we love how these experimental designs take bike frames in a new and stylish direction.

Part typography, part industrial design experiment for a sustainable future, this series from the Parisian designer has a lovely retro flare to it that lends a little style to the hardworking city bike. No pedals on these beauties yet, which might clutter up the design a bit. Details, right?
