Aero track bike by Cherubim – close-up pics

A few more pictures for you of the pursuit bike that was drawing the crowds to Cherubim’s stand at NAHBS last weekend. Here’s a shot detailing the elegant chromed bridge between the rear stays, with a Hed disc wheel beneath. More images of the bespoke cockpit, seatpost and more after the jump.

Seen from the front, with distinctive hand-rests and a protruding nose.

Super-narrow seen from the rear.

Strange, drooping seatpost, with very minimal insertion.

Highly chromed headset cap in the place of traditional stem and handlebars.

Cherubim detailing, including playing-card motif, around the bottom bracket.

This really is a work of art. Thanks for your excellent coverage of the show. My productivity at work has gone down considerably…
