Gerald Henderson, a fixed gear rider from Bordeaux, has lived in Nantes since this past summer. He used to ride with Burdigala Bicycle and has now moved to the Wednesdays and Fridays group with N-peloton.

Gerald is also a solo rider, training up for next season. At the moment in his garage, he has his Dolan PreCursa for the summer and Cinelli Mash Work for the winter.

His Dolan has been shown at a festival called Vibrations Urbaines in Pessac-bordeaux. Can you blame them? It is a work of art.

This Dolan has a custom paint job by French artist Custom Stiletto. The whole frame is unique, with smooth welds, shroud, and bottom bracket, among other components.

The blue, yellow, and red gradient was inspired by similar bubbles seen on 8bar x ucon frames, and was varnished in the front and marbleized in the rear. CrankBrother Eggbeater pedals have been attached to allow him to walk in any situation.

A very nice build for training with. But Gerald is never satisfied, and even as we speak, he’s upgraded his crankset for Sugino 75 with a Sugino Zen Chainring.
