Perhaps the ultimate indulgence for the traveling cyclist, or the ideal accessory for your Wally 80 (www.wallyyachts.com).

Pinel & Pinel, a Paris-based luxury goods manufacturer, has partnered with Brompton Bicycle, an English company reputed to produce the some of the finest folding bicycles, to develop a unique customized folding bicycle with its own custom travel trunk. For $6,600, you can customize your travel trunk, choosing from more than 51 colors of leather, including chocolate brown, orange, evergreen, hot pink and yellow. The Brompton M6R, a 6-speed can also be customized from 10 colors to match the trunk.

I love the concept, craftsmanship and mutitude of options, but I'll be shocked if they sell even one.

Thank you for this post. This bike would work great on my boat, since it has many exotic woods. Teak, mahogany, you name it. And guess where I got them. Guess. That's right. Freeport, Long Island!
