Your bike almost looks like part of the artwork on top of your dresser, it's good to be creative when living in tight quarters

Oooh, fancy!
I stayed at the "Plus Hostel" when I was in Florence....


Blogger Rachel said ... (3:58 PM) : 

Weird how I at first thought of it as an art piece.

A clean, well maintained bicycle can be as appealing visually as a piece of sculpture, with the added benefit of being utilitarian. nice!


Blogger Imke Stevens said ... (4:22 PM) : 

LoL@ bike... matching shoes?


Blogger Valentine said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Love the bike!

And the organized pairs of shoes ;)

Nice bike.

So Scott is that a real fixie?


Blogger Marcel Da Chump said ... (4:40 PM) : 

This is a first: I'm coveting something in one of your photos and it's a bike component-- that crank! It looks like a Campagnolo. I had one which was stolen; that's how valuable they are. BTW, a company called Dromarti makes stylish, leather cycling shoes in brown as well as black. Ride safe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:54 PM) : 

Love the tied shoelaces! Sign of a true appreciator of detail.


Blogger monkeyshines ♥ said ... (5:05 PM) : 

dandy photo! love the upside down decoration!

Beautiful photo! Love the bike


Blogger JMA said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Marcel Duchamp would not have done any better than this ! love it !

What an interesting photograph. Unusual but fantastic!

Oh Scott, you're so anal.


Blogger ELEGANCIA EN VERTICAL said ... (7:23 PM) : 

Wonderful and very original!

Best regards.


Anonymous Stephanie said ... (7:44 PM) : 

That is a very pretty bike...the crank, the spokes and rims, the line of the frame, the color...does it look that good right side up? (appreciate the positioning of the pedals too)


Blogger Suzanne Bean said ... (8:09 PM) : 

Love the photograph. I also love the composition of beauty, but practical application of how to store a bike. Brilliant!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:16 PM) : 

Nice!!...I hope you haven't forgotten to show us your bespoke shoes, of which you posted a few photos before. I'd like to see that. Cheers!


Blogger SAMANTHA said ... (8:39 PM) : 

SO cool. i love this shot.


Blogger ChalcedonyofSF said ... (8:44 PM) : 

Great composition! Really!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 PM) : 

why are all your laces done up?


Blogger Marcel Da Chump said ... (10:40 PM) : 

@Rich Beaubien,
The rear hub has a coaster brake--thank God, for safety's sake--and it's not a fixie.
The composition, the dresser and rug brings to mind the work of E.J Bellocq, with the bike in place of a woman.


Blogger dani said ... (12:05 AM) : 

looks perfectly abstract!
amazing photos


Blogger Mira said ... (12:33 AM) : 



Anonymous Cianna said ... (12:36 AM) : 

Nice shooooeess! Your shoes are pretty great. And a cool place for your bike, I thought it was part of the statue at first. I'm inspired...
I like the design on the drawers. I was thinking of doing something like that on my cabinets with stencils and spray paint. It'll either look terrible or awesome... the concept is taking an old style and doing it in a new way. It's been done a thousand times or more. Hopefully it'll look nice.

Wow! That's a really artistic vision for a hotel interior design!
Great photo :)

Great photo, great furniture, great shoes!

ha! Italians do it so much better!

This is just GREAT!


Blogger Ioseb said ... (4:14 AM) : 

The room of a man with style :) Wonder how big the suitcases are you travel with when you take so many shoes everywhere you go B-)


Anonymous proletarian Great Gatsby said ... (4:51 AM) : 

How many things a picture can show of someone!An interesting and beautiful photo:the bike (as sculpture:Duchamp,Man Ray),the classical elegance (the furniture)and the personal taste and touch (your shoes).Thank you


Blogger Beatrice B. said ... (5:02 AM) : 

rather looks like a hotel room in Amsterdam ;)


Anonymous Caroline said ... (5:52 AM) : 

This combination of the bike, the old hand painted set of drawers and the contemporary shoes underneath= love it!


Blogger Isabela said ... (5:54 AM) : 

WOW!! it's not a bike it's a kind of artistic performance;)



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:56 AM) : 

Nice bike, but I think you ought to go with real fenders instead of the tail. SKS makes some nice one in 35mm and 45mm widths...much more effective.


Blogger Salata said ... (6:04 AM) : 

How come your shoes are tied allready. So do you untie again when you want to wear them? Interesting :)


Anonymous Susie said ... (6:29 AM) : 

Oh wow--this is so random and cool!

I believed that you weren't an "All Star" kind of man, this opens a new part of your personal style.

What a crazy picture. Think I have to try this with my bike :D

Anonymous Joanna Roman said ... (10:12 AM) : 

Awesome! some kind of contemporary art :)


Anonymous Direct Axis said ... (10:14 AM) : 

Super COOOOL! Enough said!!!


Blogger Patricia said ... (10:50 AM) : 

are you allowed to borrow the bike for streets? :p nice composition!


Blogger rickspur said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Nice bike, but unsartorially spoiled by mudguard. Much nicer having one that fits the wheel, these ones spoil the look - as well as not working well.


Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (11:01 AM) : 

I have an old 1930's Hiawatha bicycle in my studio which, unfortunately, doesn't work anymore yet it's an amazing piece of art. Been trying to think of something to do with it and, voila! Thanks for the idea!


Blogger Meena Dhuga said ... (11:17 AM) : 

that picture is so cool! what a beautiful dresser and do i spy some converse in the corner? hehe!

Blogger Annette said ... (11:23 AM) : 

I like how you lined up your shoes :) and I always love bicycle decor. Cool room!


Blogger Maya said ... (1:17 PM) : 

this just goes to show that - even as a man - it's okay to travel with more than one pair of shoes! minimalism has its place, but it's not in footwear.



Anonymous FashionIndie said ... (1:20 PM) : 

This is such a great idea to store items in limited space but also to make art of it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Marcel Duchamp would have loved that


Blogger J.Ro said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Is that bike a piece by Tracey Emin?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:58 PM) : 

I'm not a bike expert, so does anyone know what kind of bike this is? Also, if you know the brand/model can you please tell me as well?

Cool pic Scott - like number 2 shoe from the right > which shoe is it?

That is CLEVER! Excellent place to store a bike when space is tight.


Anonymous Fashionthroughtravel said ... (4:47 AM) : 

Was that your bike? Haha great idea! The composition is very interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:23 PM) : 

I forwarded this photo to my husband, an avid cyclist, and now his single speed is an objet d'art atop our black marble console, looking grand!!! Wish you could see it -- I hope you're proud to know you were the inspiration!


Blogger jc2198 said ... (1:35 AM) : 

Did the bike interfere the door opening?


Blogger ToDDy said ... (11:05 AM) : 

wow!! it's my first time to see that the bike can be decorated as an artwork so effortlessly!!!great inspiration for me<3
