originating from the concept of reclaiming mass produced and generic objects by re-issuing them as individual and unique pieces, paris-based watch life with curiosity – otherwise known as WLWC – have handcrafted a fixed gear bike using an unusual material selection for its cladding: four reclaimed crocodile skins. requiring over 90 hours to build, and priced at over 20,000 USD, recycled reptile scales wrap the facade of the lightweight aluminum frame, cinelli handlebars, carbon fiber saddle, hand machined titanium brakes and bespoke pedals.
