Paniagua x Sven Cycles — The angry commuter

Paniagua (a brand name you might know already thanks to their EPO Coffee) have teamed up with Sven Cycles to create five limited edition bikes inspired by the legendary Cinelli Laser.

Jamie Gallagher of Paniagua met Darron Coppin of Sven Cycles at Bespoked last year and the Angry Commuter project was born:

“I wanted to build a fast, aggressive commuter that you could jump on in jeans and nail 20 or 30-mile rides across the unforgiving Somerset landscape, whilst still retaining the delicate balance and emotive heritage of a true classic.”

The components are mostly Italian, with a Campagnolo Record TT group-set, customised Cinelli Mash bars (to take the Campag shifters) and a Zoncolan saddle.

If the paintwork reminds you of something else from the early eighties,  you’re on point, because the design theme for the build was another timeless classic — The Delorian DMC-12.
