Viks bicycles have only been around for a few years but they have definitely made their mark on the commuter bicycle industry. Based in Tallinn, Estonia, the company hand crafts every man-powered-2-wheeler from start to finish. With emphasis on unique frame design, their latest creation, the Viks GT ‘Lamborghini’ Bike ($Inquire) takes its inspiration from the Italian Lamborghini sports car.
While the folks at Viks normally use shaped stainless steel tubing to construct the frames, the GT (gran turismo) is made from aluminum alloy for a 40% weight reduction. Despite the lighter metal, the bike’s double frame build still provides more than adequate strength.
The frame of the Viks GT imitates the look of the iconic automobile with angular lines and sharp edges, while the color on the original release is done in Lamborghini yellow to show off the similarities between the automobile and the bicycle. And if you’re not a fan of the pullet hue, no need to fret as Viks intends to release more GT’s in all the official Lamborghini colors. Even better, by building these bikes to order, a variety of frame sizes are available for a perfect fit to your ride.
