How to ride a rainbow

Toronto, Canada. **You never know what you'll see while picking up some fruit at the corner store. I bumped into this guy who had just finished decking his bike out with some swatches. Awesome idea!

    That's Feleepe's bike!

    Met him at the '09 ice bike race but he wasn't riding this one. Instantly recognized the steel saddle and hollow grips.

    Thanks Derek!! Yes-- that's a beautiful frame he's got there. I thought it was one of those custom made bikes that used to be sold on Harbord, but not sure. Maybe a Litespeed? It IS a beauty. Heard that someone stole his bike one day, and he found it again 2 hours later after the jerk rode past Ideal coffee. He got his bike back. Wowee!

    does anyone have any info on this bike ? like what size frame it is or is it a road or mountain bike ?
    i love it.
  • intrepidacious 3y

    It's definitely a custom bike. There used to be a bike shop that made these frames but they closed. Never really talked to the guy, but his name is Feleepe. Let me see if I can't get more info on the bike for you. :)

    Ah but can you ride it fast enough for the colours to merge into white? :-)

    This is a great idea to do with extra swatch cards. I have collected a variety of swatch cards for myself. I would really like to do something artistic with them. There are many artistic people out there that are able to think of something. I will need to look into what I can do for myself. bredemeier.com/products/swatch-cards/

    Sorry, can someone explain why people think having no brakes is cool? Sooner or later you're going to need to stop in a hurry, it won't look so great under a truck.
