Ground-breaking design for a new breed of bike.
Er's Teardrop represents a radical departure from the traditional "chopper" styling (raked front forks, stretched frames and back-leaning riding style) of Josh's earlier designs. Until this bike was created, his designs had been largely minimalist: simple aerodynamic streamlines emphasizing negative spaces. Er's Teardrop was tighter, more aerodynamic with a forward leaning riding position. Hand-spun aluminum wheel covers added a cleaner look than spokes and whereas previous glass tanks were somewhat rough and simply made to fit, the specs of this one were carefully designed specifically for this bike. While previous bikes were largely built on the fly, Er's Teardrop was an entirely preconceived idea..
