Pat’s Little Prince Firefly Disc Road
Pat's Firefly Disc Road

“One sees clearly only with the heart, anything essential is invisible to the eye.” This quote is from the novella the Little Prince and really resonated with Pat, the owner of this new Firefly disc road. What a fitting mantra for a bike that is designed to climb and descend mountain passes in Los Angeles by utilizing Shimano’s flat-mount disc brakes, White Industry 30mm spindle cranks, a beautiful segmented wishbone seatstay, a Parlee fork and supple Compass tires. Raw titanium bikes don’t usually do it for me, but this one sits like a dream.

Congrats to Pat and the team at Firefly for building up yet another Beautiful Bicycle for the mountains of Los Angeles!

Firefly for Jan Heine?
Firefly_Compass_02

Ever wonder what a man like Jan Heine would want in a custom titanium bike? Well, this is merely speculation, but Firefly just posted a photoset of a ti bike with those 26″ Rat Trap Pass Compass tires and a titanium Tubus rack, labeled Jan Heine. So, speculate all you want, but I’m guessing this one will be in a forthcoming issue of Bicycle Quarterly. See more of this insane bike at the Firefly Flickr.
