The Gorgeous 'Vicious' Bike

Despite its overtly aggressive name, the only thing dangerous about the sumptuous new Vicious Cycle is the threat it poses your wallet.

This glorious three-spoked bike by Dutchmann is the result of a collaboration between retired South African frame designer Duncan MacIntyre and composite materials expert Anton Dekker - a veritable dream team of bicycle design. 

The frame consists of a hand-brazed build from Reynolds 653 and Columbus steel tubing (that's apparently a big deal if you're into pedal power), while Dekker's materials team have built hand-layered, bespoke (literally) carbon fibre three-spoke wheels for the project.

If you fancy pedalling off on a Vicious bike, you'll need to act fast - there are only 10 set to be made, with a price tag in the region of £3,245.

And if it's just the wheels you like the look of, you can order them separately as well. Just steer well clear of any tyre-eating pot holes, okay?
