YAPHANK, N.Y. – May 23, 2017 – PRLog — Bicycle Makeover’s custom vinyl wrap “Demon Bike” was selected in CNET’s “20 Tricked-Out Bicycles for 2017” . Designed and created by owner of Bicycle Makeover, Richie Caiazza, the one of a kind Dimond Triathlon bike covered in skulls and flames made the list at number 14.
“It was a total shock and quite humbling to see my work selected by one of the largest tech review and news companies out there!” says Richie Caiazza, President and Owner of Bicycle Makeover
The Demon Bike was created for Anthony Snoble, Ironman World Championship Kona Qualifier and Multiple Xterra World Championship Maui Qualifier without a single hint or suggestion of design. Simply using only trust in Richie to customize it to fit him and his taste.
At first, custom bikes were painted, expensive and typically were catered to professional athletes. “It was common to customize the little stuff including your handlebar tape, saddle, and clothing, but previously your bike was only available in the color the manufacturer chose” says Richie. He wanted to serve to the masses, making it more affordable plus keeping the value of the bike without voiding the warranty. So Richie started wrapping his own bikes and quickly got attention from locals, then apparel brands and eventually went nationwide. Bikes or just the frames are shipped directly to the shop and turnaround is within a few days.
Richie’s process of creating one of a kind bicycles for clients starts with understanding their color palate, interests, tastes and hobbies. All bikes truly take on the client’s personality as a form of art including a “Freedom Bike” that is red, white and blue and an “Air Force” bike for someone who served in US armed forces. Triathlon apparel companies are taking notice, as clients want to match their sponsored team kit to their bike such as the well known female brand Betty Design. The possibilities are truly endless and can be fun, similar to how exotic cars are vinyl wrapped or commercial vehicles are branded.
