Paul Smith 531 Mercian Fixed-Gear Bike.

Paul Smith has joined the likes of Hermes and Chanel to produce a road racing bike.  Unlike many luxury bikes however, there is some link to the designer himself, as before becoming a designer, Sir Paul Smith had dreams of becoming a professional cyclist.  He has harnessed this expertise in order to produce this luxury fixed-gear bike, branded with his moniker.

In collaboration with Mercian, the British bespoke bike brand, the bike is be made from matte-black lightweight steel, and is fitted with a range of custom high-end kit including a handmade Fizik saddle and Continental tyres.  It is available to buy now from MR Porter online, and Paul Smith's flagship store in Westbourne Grove, and costs £4,995.
