Given the gold details of this fine, German fixie, you’d think the Goldencycle Gold One Cycle is worth a million bucks. Despite the visual elegance, its designer focused on cost savings to make it available to the commuting class, not the collector’s circuit. The Gold One Cycle is a pure, stripped-down cycle that provides only the basics — plus a single brake — for lightweight, low-cost riding enjoyment. While this bike from Goldencycle might be as sexy as some of the five-figure luxury bikes we’ve seen in recent years, this one is available for about $750 after conversion from Euro.
The Goldencycle Gold One Cycle is built on a custom frame and a collection of components designed in-house that are based on three years of testing and research. The bike features aluminum construction and bright, gold-colored details that stand out on the street. Some may scoff at the lack of carbon fiber buzzwords or smartphone connectivity, but that isn’t the point. This is a bike like they used to build them, a two-wheel, crank-and-chain fixie that eschews all the fluffy stuff for good old-fashioned riding. It’s rigid, tough and fast, and boy does it look good in the process.
The Goldencycle Gold One Cycle will be available by September 1st, although availability in the US is still up in the air. I personally hope American availability is in the works, because I’d be proud to pedal this little beauty myself…
