Concept Bicycle

Solé Bicycles was founded in 2009 by a group of friends with a shared determination and vision–to offer up stylish quality bikes that ship directly to buyers for an affordable price.

As a creative resource, I was given a fixed gear / single speed bike frame to measure and reference when doing custom surface design work. Instead of just keeping it for reference, I decided to build it up as a working bike. The twist with my concept bike is a modern 2-speed kick shift internal gear hub. This unique rear hub extends a fun bike, intended for casual cruising along the beach, to one that’s capable of climbing a little further inland with ease.
