Track bikes are usually beautiful without any adjustments thanks to their well proportioned frame, clean lines and minimalist elegance. But this Cherubium track bicycle takes the simplicity of the design to a new level of style. Bought in a bike shop in Tokyo and customized by Los Angeles-based Golden Saddle Cyclery, this golden beauty combines practicality and high-quality components with a sleek, vintage-inspired aesthetic. The bike features a light brown Berthoud saddle, a Velo Orange Grand Cru stem, an EAI gold cog, Toshi bar tape, and vintage Campagnolo hubs paired with H+Son TB14 rims.

Gleaming and matte gold and silver tones as well as subtle details give this Cherubium bicycle a truly refined finish. It almost looks too beautiful to take to the streets, but we’re certain it’s as pleasurable to ride as it is to admire.
