C.O.P. Design Denim Fixie

denimWe were sent this heads up by French product designer, Paul Chaquet, who has created an all denim fixed gear. I dug around, but couldn’t pull up much more information (in English, anyways) about the project. I’m not sure if this is a one-off or Chaquet is trying to put this into production. He deems it the “First Denim Fixie”, which is mostly true. Levi’s created a fixed gear with a denim paint scheme and true denim seat cover/bar tape, but I guess I’m just splitting seams here (see what I did there?).

    Yikes. You’d think they could have at least picked an actual track frame to denim-ize.

    That’s not “art & design”, it’s “arts & crafts”.

    Dave is right. Why do they use a road frame?

    Haha this is awesome! We thought we did some good bikes but this is a step ahead! Love it!

    I agree with drinkslinger it is arts and craft. Not good for wet weather. Can you get wet lube for it??
