The World’s Most Ostentatious Fixed Gear

CR0P_Swarovski-Crystal-and-24k-Gold-Plated-Bike.jpg
Here’s one highly adorned fixed gear that isn’t likely to make its way through the streets of Wiliamsburg or on the banks of velodromes anywhere. The $102,418 track bike masterpiece is hand built, plated with 24k gold, and encrusted with over 600 Swarovski crystals. Limited to only ten pieces, it was designed by Aurumania, a company started with the sole purpose of slathering gold onto everyday objects and thereby transforming them into “collectable art” or the most conspicuously consumptive trophies that only the unreasonably rich can afford. Please don’t show it to pretend fixie lover Kanye! Detailed closeups after the jump.
