Be The First On Your Block With Rod Brakes

Feisty upcomers Empire Bicycles, are bringing that retro heat with some old fashioned English Roadsters. Now you might think these were found in a giant warehouse hidden all these years behind the arc of the covenant, but you'd be wrong as these are brand new. If you head over here you will see all sorts of pics of their mens and womens models. Lots of detailed shots, including the rod brakes!!

"They are modeled after the Raleigh Deluxe Model One (or "DL-1") -- which incorporated the latest technology of the post-Victorian era (circa 1913)"

Bottom line, it's a nice functional bike for commuting, cruising, looking good in your post-Victorian denim, etc.. and it's unique style will have everyone guessing you rode off from a Masterpiece Theater set.

FYI, if you want to check em out in person, or buy one, head to the Fort Greene Flea Market this Saturday (176 Lafayette Avenue) from 10am-6pm.

Get em while they are hot, these are a limited run.

Not in Brooklyn this weekend, jeez, don't worry, there is always ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300367531344&ssPageName=ADME:B:EF:US:1123
