New York City based Bertelli bikes is taking the fixie trend to new heights with a unique line of hand assembled bikes built up from choice NOS and vintage parts from around the world.

The company says these are not just regular track bikes, saying that “every bike is a design project. It is not just buying a bike.”

For a base price of $1500, Bertelli will build you a bicycle from the ground up, creating a unique bicycle just for you. Parts and prices can be upgraded from there, but don’t expect to have them build you that neon color coordinated fixie you have always been dreaming of; the company owner clearly lists on the website features he likes and doesn’t.

“All my builds have and will have no logos and stickers, lugged steel, skinny tubes, quill stems, vintage cranksets, track geometry, leather & wood, unusual handlebars and chrome forks.

Pretty specific criteria, but if you are interested in a personal Bertelli build, you can visit the website to contact them here. Despite the lack of build options, they are beautiful bikes nonetheless. More photos of Bertelli builds after the break.

This is easily the most pretentious horse crap I have ever seen. $1500 and up for a steel fixed gear with no grips? It’s not like he’s building the frames, he is just buying old parts. Here is a better way to spend $1500: get a steel specialized Langster for $660 and spend the other $840 on beer, or better yet donate the other $840 to charity.

+1 for Ekko!

Besides, if he’s going for a vintage look, why ruin it with lemon-yellow Deep Vs? There are plenty of great “classic” rim profiles that would fit the look better.
