Custom titanium and stainless bikes are pricey, plastic bottles are not, nor are plastic storage kegs. Both are for sale now at Firefly.
I know the whole point of the Firefly Bones project is to offer a unique *steel* frame, made in Boston and hand illustrated by Eric Bones, but I can’t help but think these are the best looking collaboration bikes to come from a frame builder and I’d love to see them go into full-scale, mass production.
Each of these builds have unique details as well. What caught my eye here was that titanium stem and the proportions of those Dura Ace cranks. This bike looks mean.

If you’re an industrial or product designer, who dreams of working in the industry, you should really check this out. These new Firefly dropouts were machined at Cantabrigian Mechanics and solve the many disc-related problems that have arisen since road bikes adapted the braking technology.
I don’t wanna spoil the fun, so head over to Peter Verdone’s blog for the full story!
Let’s see, Barzo 2.25 tires, Lefty, Ti stem to match the sweet Ti frame, segmented stays, Industry Nine. Yep. This is probably one of my favorite Firefly MTBs to date. I can’t stop looking at it!
See more for yourself at the Firefly Flickr. Coincidentally, this is #360 from Firefly! Full-circle indeed guys. Congrats!
I can’t get over how metal these Bones Project bikes are shaping up. Each one is hand-painted by Eric Bones. Here’s number 04 and you can see more at Firefly’s Flickr.
People have all kinds of ways for showing their admiration of Columbus’ tubesets. Of course, you could always just put a decal on one of your bikes, noting the tube but that’s not the case with the latest from Firefly…
It’s not everyday you see a Firefly completely painted, especially in a bright cobalt blue. This one’s special and you should really check out all the details at the Firefly Flickr!
I love photos like this. Especially when it’s a Firefly. I wonder what this one will build up like? See more at the Firefly Flickr!
From here on out, any bike that goes off-road and could potentially find itself in the wilderness for an extended period of time with have a third bottle cage. They’re life savers.
Not to mention, I’d love to spend some “alone time” with this bike. See more at the Firefly Flickr!
