London – Jon Takao
Jon Takao works in the Specialized footwear division as an industrial designer. For this London edition track bike, he pulled inspiration from the gates of Buckingham Palace. Jon also pulled elements from the Queen’s guard in Alice of Wonderland. And while it’s not obvious in the photos, that’s real gold leaf on those faux lugs.
