Beautiful Bicycle: Kevin’s Real Tree Cinelli Mash Jan 16, 2013

Photos by Arthur Alvarez

Kevin Mihovich wanted his Cinelli Mash track bike to stand out from the rest by being hidden. Does that make sense? So he commissioned West Coast Hydrographix in Redwood City, CA to cover his bike in real tree camo. Then,  he enlisted the help of his friend Arthur Alvarez to do a photoshoot in the woods. Pretty clever. Check out more below!

    This could be the first bike I have seen with real tree on it.  Actually looks really good.

    That is so nice.  Hydrographics are the truth.

    Seems cool until you lose your bike in the forest cause it looks like a tree.

    Seriously though, that’s awesome.

    that is an awesome idea, and nicely executed by the looks of it! would be more at home on a mtb or cx frame though…

    so hot.

    Very redneck. I’d like it more if the RealTree application actually let it blend into the woods instead of glaring… Probably cooler looking in the urban context, anyways. Ought to toss in some “safety orange” for the full-hick-effect.

    This is easily one of the coolest set of photos i’ve seen in awhile, when I saw this on Tracko I was hoping there’d be more shots of the bike. I want to do this to my goat!
