Glen Plake is an icon in the skiing world. Best known for his two foot high mohawk, punk rock attitude, and incredible ability to shred, he also has a soft spot for road cycling. It may seem like an unlikely match, but Plake has been following the grand tours since childhood. In recent years, he completed the legendary 508 race, as well as ridden along with the 100th anniversary of the Tour de France. Next year, he and wife Kimberly plan on riding the Giro d’Italia route.

For these serious endeavors, Plake has an arsenal of Lycra and carbon, but his true passion is vintage machines. His personal collection includes a Peugeot, Battaglin, and this Super Record Gios. You don’t have to know anything about bikes to see just how special this bike is. But the tech nerds out there will appreciate everything about this meticulously maintained rig. The best part however is that Plake routinely rides this bike. And we’re not talking parade laps, he goes out and pedals hard.
