How it’s made. The owner of this one-time creation will meet with award-winning, custom bicycle builder Tony Pereira to design the Beer Bike. All Pereira Cycles are one-of-a-kind, leaving the final form of the bike up to its rider. Custom Pereira Cycle racks can be designed to carry 22-ounce bottles, growlers or six packs and can include a mounted bottle opener—you decide. Bike will include:
-Top-of-the-line Shimano drivetrain and disc brakes
-Chris King headset, bottom bracket and hubs
-Schmidt lighting system
-Custom paint job
-Total value: $7,000
Detailing on the Beer Bike will be similar to these Pereira Cycles.
About Pereira Cycles
Tony Pereira artfully crafts every Pereira Cycle one at a time in a small shop in Portland, Oregon. Inspired by the style and innovations from the mid-century French Constructeur period and the early days of mountain biking, Tony builds everything from 29er singlespeed bicycles and randonneuring rigs to touring, road, cyclocross and transportation bikes. His modern re-interpretations of classic styles employ the latest drivetrain components, disc brakes and lighting systems for exceptional performance. Tony has won numerous awards for his work, including best Road, Off-Road and Fillet Brazed bikes at the 2007 NAHBS and first place in the 2009 and 2011 Oregon Manifest Constructor’s Design Challenge and has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Paved, Mountain Bike Magazine and Bicycle Quarterly.
