Living in New York I have seen the Martone Bicycle. Other than being associated with Lorenzo Martone the former fiancee' of Marc Jacobs I see nothing special in this bicycle. The components are such that belong in a sub $200 bike in mass merchants. The frame
especially the woman's version does not seem structurally sound. The front basket does seem to be solid however not a new innovation and the "red chain" on all the bikes is a terrible gimmick . Overall this bike should retail in a bicycle shop at less than $300 and only after having made some structural changes to the frame and improved components (i.e.: brakes)

Interesting article. Having been a bike enthusiast for many years, it is amazing to see where technology has taken the sport and the equipment. This company seems to be on the cutting edge.
