Thomas Callahan of Horse Cycles built the bicycle fleet that docks at Ace Hotel New York. You can take one for a spin when you stay with us or get your own. Thomas crafts these two-wheeled vessels from durable lugged steel with his own two hands and other tools in his Williamsburg, Brooklyn shop.
He’s the kind of self-taught artisan born with the itch to build beautiful things that fetch you over bridges and down rush hour streams through ravines of office tower and tenement as you peddle your way, wind-in-your-hair and glad. We’re glad each time we set eyes or ass upon any of the fine steeds in our fleet.
Thomas’s latest venture is the Urban Tour Project, a new production line of wheel-to-frame-to-wheel all made in America bikes, because eventually we might need to get back to making things. He’s trying to get the training wheels off this new line with a Kickstarter. That’s something we can pledge allegiance to, and a couple duckets.
