Firefly Biycles: Fire
Firefly

Like something out of a Mobius comic, this new Firefly uses eye-catching red and yellow chevrons while leaving most of the frame raw. All that comes to mind when I see it is one word: fire.

See more of this made in Boston beauty at the Firefly Flickr!

Firefly Bicycles: SPLAT!
Splat

I’m so glad to see this. For a few reasons. One of which it’s my friend Ross’ seat post for his tourer, which is ramblin’ through Montana right now. Another is why wouldn’t you request anodization like this if you’re getting a Firefly?

Firefly Bicycles: Touring Bike with Campagnolo 11
FireflyTourer

There’s something elegant about a beautifully raked steel fork on a titanium frameset and that’s only the beginning to the over-the-top detailing on this new Firefly tourer. E3 lights, SON hub, fenders, killer seatpost, custom ano, Pasela tires, Campy and yeah, bar end shifters.

Head over to the Firefly Tumblr for more spy shots.

Firefly Bicycles: Repetitive Pattern
Firefly_Perspective

There’s something really striking about the pattern treatment on the back of this Firefly’s seat tube. The anodizing fade is spot on. For your daily dose of Firefly deliciousness, follow them on Tumblr.

Firefly Goes Fat for Vittoria’s Bomboloni Tires
FireflyFatty4

Apologies for double dipping Firefly this week, but their latest bike is too good to not share. Immediately.

Firefly has appeared to have hooked up with Vittoria to make a custom titanium fatbike, modeled after their new 26″ fat tires, the Bomboloni (named after an Italian donut). All this is merely speculation, but I’m guessing the frosty branding and “bomboloni” on the top tube is enough evidence to deduce that.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a slicker, meaner bike from Firefly. Check out the segmented stays, slightly bent top tube, gussets and thru-axles! Nice work fellas. See the rest at the Firefly Flickr.

Firefly Bicycles: Serpentine Seat Tube
Firefly_Serpentine_02

Firefly has a saying: “every bike is a show bike” and with projects like this, it’s easy to see why. Now, I’m not sure what this symbol is referencing, although it appears to be ouroboros-inspired but seeing something personal like this, executed on a beautiful titanium frame is enough to make anyone want to flip through more shots of this bike. Luckily you can do so at the Firefly Flickr.

Firefly Bicycles: Anodized Cells

When it comes to custom titanium, few do it like Firefly, especially when it comes to their custom anodizing, specifically the anodized cells in this mountain dropout. So good! Keep on top of Firefly’s work at their Tumblr and Instagram.
