Together with David Mercer from the legendary Mercer Bikes we have been working on different types and models of our fleet. Have a look at Mercer’s workshop in the video below.
Our latest creation is the Alchemist
words by Kyle Weedman.
The bike, I guess, is a dedication to alchemy and my growing personal resonance to the mysterious art & philosophy. The concept behind the bike was formed kind of organically through a process of dreaming and visualization. The early ideas are nothing close to what we landed up with in the end. “The Alchemist”- It all just clicked.
David Mercer’s craftsmanship is definitely that of alchemy. So much so that I did not want to paint over the beautiful raw frame we received. Ashley Shamrock threw some mad ideas into the mix with his black and gold marbling. It was at this moment when it all started to come together but it still needed a “Killat” kick – then came the pink to purple fade in the lettering which gave it the attitude it needed.
The bike is a testament to what happens when you follow the magic and collaborate with amazing people. It all came together so beautifully, and I can’t thank Dane, Ronald, David & Ashley enough for the time and energy that they put in to make this happen.
In the words of Paulo Coelho “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting”.
The bike absolutely rips!
