Ranking Lance's Art Bikes

As you may have heard, Lance Armstrong is auctioning off the custom art bikes he rode during his comeback year. I’ve got the art/cycling thing going on myself (in case you didn’t notice) so I thought I’d take a look and rank the bikes in order of preference.

Check ’em out and let me know which is your favorite in the comments.

  1. Yoshitomo Nara

    I love this bike. The color scheme is obviously right in my sweet spot, the characters are cool and the cloud-letter livestrong is the shit. Big thumbs up for this thing.

  2. Kenny Scharf

    Killer. Scharf didn’t fight the bike at all. He went right with the flow and knocked it out of the park. This looks fast. Like a hot rod.

  3. Shepard Fairey

    Typical OBEY approach. Typically great results. I like the adherence to the Livestrong color scheme.

  4. Kaws

    I like the way KAWS just accented the bike instead of filling ever available inch. Not that there’s anything wrong with filling every available inch, of course (see above.)

  5. Mark Newson

    Not much to this beyond the great rear disc. Me, I like it for that. With the time trial bikes that disc wheel must be a siren song and the treatment here is very cool.

  6. Damian Hirst

    I’m not really much of a fan of Damian Hirst, in general, and this doesn’t break the trend. I don’t hate it, but it does nothing for me, really. This will sell for a gajillion dollars though, and the money is going to a good cause, so at least there’s that.
