Jake Ricker: Felix’s Viana Track Bike Mar 19, 2012

I was talking to a few people at NAHBS this year about how Seattle doesn’t have many builders, especially when compared to Portland, its arch enemy. There’s what? Davidson and that’s about it? Then I saw this beast. Todd Hunt Bertram builds custom bicycles under the name Viana Cycles. His shop is based in Seattle and this particular frame utilizes a rather unique wishbone seat stay bridge. What else would you call it? Take note of that downtube diameter, the sleeved and cleaved seat tube and the bright-ass color. The list just goes on. Check out more at Jake’s Flickr!

For more information on Viana, head to their site and their Etsy profile. That’s a first!

  • Felix always has the raddest bikes!
    But the list goes on, currently:
    O’Brian, Boxer, Bombus, Rodriguez, 333fab, Duncan Cycles, Rossman, Erickson (not sure if he is still building), Lyon, Boedie, Hampsteen/Tournesol, and Yours Truly… not a bad selection!

    • Info

       Jeff Lyon is now (for a number of years) in southern OR, and Chris from Boedie relocated to Whitefish, MT a year or two ago.
