Most Beautiful Bikes Of 2013

Cycle EXIF is a site out of South Africa based around a daily updated “gallery of the world’s most beautiful custom, classic and handmade bicycles.”

This week, the blog releases its “Cycle EXIF Top 10,” a crowd-sourced collection of the most popular bikes revealed on the site this year.

The top rides include a sleek 29er from Minneapolis-based A-Train Cycles (below) as well as a Donhou Bicycles uber-track bike (look at the chainring!) that we covered earlier this year on our blog.

Fixed-gear and single-speed bikes dominate; we see only two derailleurs out of the 10 featured bikes. Some bikes seem more “art” than transport, but every ride on the list looks fun to ride.

Take a peek below at a couple more examples and then check out the full spread on Cycle EXIF here. —Stephen Regenold
