The ‘Vicious Cycle’ proves collaboration can be v successful.

South African collaborative studio, Dutchmann worked with an accomplished local bicycle frame builder Duncan Macintyre and with composite specialist Anton Dekker to construct a limited edition bicycle labeled the ‘Vicious Cycle’. The distinctive two wheeler is available in only ten versions, using hand built original Macintyre frames, Dekker tri-spoke wheels and select modern components.

The tri-spoke wheels are custom crafted for the Dutchmann ‘Vicious Cycle’ project by Anton Dekker and his team at Exclusive Conversion.
