Vanguard x Underscore

Vanguard x Underscore

Bicycle manufacturer Vanguard, in collaboration with Underscore Magazine, have released a series of four one-off limited edition bicycles: Cloud, Rain, Mist and Dew.

Taking inspiration from the overlapping stages of precipitation and evaporation, elements of the hydrologic cycle were studied and distinguished to represent each bicycle, reinforcing notions of repetition, renewal, reflection and change.

For the construction of the bicycles, four 1970s Japanese-made Ishiwata touring frames of high-grade vintage steel with fillet-brazed joinery and lugged construction were acquired as the canvases. These frames, which are no longer in production, are extremely durable, strong and flexible, with the ability to withstand extreme stress from the toughest urban riding conditions.

All bikes were built as single-speed kinetic sculptures and fitted with coaster hub brakes.
