The VICIOUS CYCLE | Elle Decoration South AfricaWe don’t claim to be any kind of experts in the world of bicycle design; but we know quality when we see it. This is unadulterated quality.

The Vicious Cycle is a collaboration between retired frame-builder Duncan MacIntyre and composite specialist Anton Dekker. MacIntyre is South Africa’s most accomplished bicycle frame builder having built frames from the early 1970’s under a wide range of local brands and later custom frames for competitive use under his own brand ‘Gemini’. 

Dekker runs a specialist composite workshop producing bespoke components for brands such as Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari. The Vicious cycle is available in an edition of 10, hand-built using original MacIntyre frames, Dekker Tri-spoke wheels & select contemporary components.

The Vicious Cycle logo was designed by Gustav Greffrath. Hand-drawn with purposeful reference to the hybrid classic/contemporary nature of the project, the logo speaks of movement, speed and craftsmanship.
