This isn't quite breaking news, but Thomas Callahan of Horse Cycles recently posted a short, sweet video introduction to his shop:
I had the pleasure of meeting Thomas a few weeks ago, at the New Amsterdam Bike Show, for which he was hosted the raucous afterparty at his 3,000+ sf shop in Williamsburg—thanks in part to eight cases of Heineken courtesy of the Dutch consulate. (Thomas also hosted the fellas from Geekhouse, who gathered reconnaissance on Thomas's Raisin Bran addiction.)
These machines aren't so much about the latest technology—in terms of fabrication or mobile partying—as they are about the bikes themselves; as Thomas says in the video, "it's two wheels and a frame." And while the custom framebuilding scene has definitely picked up quite a bit in the past couple years, Thomas stands out for his dedication to the craft, which comes through in the video and the final product.
Both the bikes and the photography are absolutely gorgeous.
The detailing is incredible...
Requisite shop porn (not sure if this is the new space or the old one...)
Saved the best for last: the purple track bike is definitely what I would go for... if I miraculously came across a small fortune.
