This is too good to not share. Keep it fun, Firefly. So where’s the Instagram shot of this one?
Correction, it was a Vine!
As much as I love details and side elevations of bikes, sometimes getting right up, front and center is equally as compelling. Especially when you’re staring down a Firefly.

For Firefly’s latest build, they had Boston photographer Heather McGrath come in for some detail photos. I’ve been following this bike’s process over on their Tumblr and the end product is quite nice. Check out more detail photos from the Firefly titanium and carbon road at their Flickr and see the full build right here.
“A little bit of racing and a little bit of light touring” seems to be what a lot of people want from their cross bikes. That’s exactly what Gordon told Firefly when he put down his deposit. This cross bike has fender and rack mounts for weekend getaways and mini-v’s for road riding. Come cross season, he’ll pop on some 32c cross tires and get her nice and muddy. It’s always a pleasure to photograph a Firefly, especially when the owner is such a stand up guy. Denver has such rad bikes and such great people. It’s been a hell of a trip. Oh and, thanks for the hangover man!
This is absolutely over the top in every way but I love it, especially that fork. So much radness coming from Firefly these days.
Someone made a comment about colored components on bikes being a fad. Well, it’s the longest running fad in the cycling industry and as exhibited here in the latest from Firefly, it’s all about a touch of color. Although I would love to see a completely anodized titanium frame from these guys.
I think it’s safe to say that this machine is made to take a big beating and deliver an even bigger one. There are too many drool-worthy photos rolling into the Firefly Tumblr these days.
