DC Shoes and SE Bikes create the “PK Ripper” fixed gear.
Designed after the iconic BMX bike which originally appeared in the late 70s, the DC x SE will be available in a classic ball burnished finish with blue accents as well as a less flashy matte black. The total run will be 2,500 bikes, 1,250 in each color. Here’s hoping they sent one to Perry Kramer. Available now from Overload for $1,000.
below: Out of these 1000 bikes, The Standard, New York has taken 20 pieces to further customize, showcasing the commuter nature of the bike. 15 bikes will be for the guests.
above: As all of you know, fixed gear bicycles are known to have no brakes, but The Standard’s versions will have a back brake (unless your a seasoned rider, the city streets are not that forgiving, so a brake can definitely help), as well as a reversible back hub and rim which will convert the bike from fixed to freewheel in an instant.
The entire bicycle is matte black, and as our NYC colorway is black & gold, The Standard has added an anodized gold front rim, and a small anodized gold Standard logo badge on the seat tube.
An embossed Standard logo in the custom leather seats, gives this special bike the subtle details that make it truly unique.
If you’re not lucky enough to stay at The Standard and use one of the 15 complimentary bikes there, you can buy your own at The Standard’s online shop for $1,250 USD
