NAHBS Snapshot: Shamrock Cycles
Shamrock Cycles Fluid Druid Retro Racer
A perennial favorite of yours truly, Shamrock Cycles, a.k.a builder Tim O’Donnell, certainly doesn’t disappoint with his bikes’ exceptionally clean lines and exquisite execution.
With this particular build, O’Donnell drew his inspiration from the 1960s, “I wanted it to look ultra-modern—if you were looking at it in 1964.”
Adhering to a standard race geometry, the bike juxtaposes modern componentry (Campy Super Record in this case) and classic styling, based around the bike’s color palette from yesteryear. Officially called “So Blue” the shade lends the bike “the Sean Connery of paintjobs—understated” according to O’Donnell.
