Hermes joins the ranks of the bicycle couture with a flawless creation in lacquered stainless steel.
For this timeless, genderless beauty with Taurillon Clemence leather accents you have to pay $4,000. (and no, it doesn’t come with a matching Kelly or Birkin. Not, that even a mini one!) While I’m sure there will be plenty who’ll opt for this new couture Hermes bicycle, I still think stainless steel offers a too heavy alternative to the light carbon or even aluminum. That’s because I’m picky and if I had $4,000 to splash on a bike, I’d choose the best comfort / engineering rapport I could find and not just a famous leather goods brand offering. Would you give in to the Hermes bike just because it’s a Hermes?
