The Best Bikes for Design Fiends: Van Hulsteijn

Curves that are sure to turn heads on the street.


Some consider it the bicycle capital of the world. So it's no surprise that Holland may have just reinvented the wheel. After a prototype he built for himself attracted so much attention from passersby that he could barely order a drink at the local bar, Dutch designer Herman Van Hulsteijn founded his own production studio to meet demand. Boasting gravity-defying stainless-steel curves, each of his bikes feature a two-speed kick shift and three-speed coaster brakes. The two standard models, the Woody and Bluefixie, are loaded with custom touches — choice of seat, rim, and frame colors available in white, black, blue, or orange. Sleek, eye-catching, and technically innovative, they're unlike anything else you'll find on the streets.
