If you can get past the hipster-ish-ness of it, it's kind of awesome, to me at least. What this dude is about is pretty cool, stripped down and I'm diggin it! It would be a blast to ride some of these bikes he's made.
Brooklyn resident William Thomas Porter builds wonderful - and really weird - bikes. "I wouldn't call them mutants," he says of his bike caricatures, "because that would make them sound ugly. It's more like creating this... new splendid form." We followed him around for a about a year documenting his projects and cajoling him into demonstrating the bikes' awesomeness in a series of humorous, fast-paced vignettes.
Throughout the short Tom chats with good friend (and sometimes collaborator), Diego Guzman, about how and exactly why he does what he does.
