It’s hard not to stop and stare when you walk by a frame from lov bikes.
The "red and white."
The company, based in Colorado’s Vail Valley, released its first works of art last spring. They sell mountain, road, and cyclocross bikes, each of which takes owner Nate Picklo up to 25 hours to paint.
He works closely with clients to ensure the custom bikes come out looking like the frames of their dreams—dressed to the nines and ready for speed.
But the carbon frames aren’t just pretty faces. You can get a complete bike with hydraulic disk brakes, carbon wheels, and internally-routed electronic shifting. You know, all the goodies.
$2,500 for the frame
$6,699 for the complete bike
