If you can’t tell, Ian from Icarus and Chris Bishop both asked me to photograph their show bikes for the Philly Bike Expo. With the painter’s schedule packed, neither had time to get the bikes documented before the trip to Philly. One of the things you’ll notice about Chris’ work is that his love for late 80’s and early 90’s crit bikes really shows with the paint jobs. The chevrons and colors mimic even Eddy Merckx’s team bikes. This bike was built for Bicycling Magazine (it’s actually in the stands now) and if that’s not a team Panasonic Merckx homage then I don’t know what is.
