Custom Bicycles in NYC

I had this grow­ing inter­est lately of get­ting myself a bike. It’s been a minute since I’ve had one to be hon­est. I remem­ber hav­ing fun w/ my generic-BMX back in the P.I. with my bowl-cut. I remem­ber going through the streets with our generic-BMX crew and hop­ing over speed bumps; mak­ing ramps; and eat­ing it hard on the pave­ment filled with small rocks and peb­bles. We were for­tu­nate we didn’t crack our skulls as we got mad air most of the time, only to be brought back down to Earth by the Law of Physics.

Any­ways, check this video out by Rock­et­boom cor­re­spon­dent Ella Mor­ton when she inter­views Josh Hadar about his hand sculpted cus­tom bicycles.

PS. For own­ers who are bike offi­ciana­dos, road or moun­tain bike? In terms of rid­ing ver­sa­til­ity for street, hills, dirt, etc. (I’m guess­ing mountain?)
