Introducing: The Wilco Bike

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Aug 12, 2011 4:00PM

Wilco is now taking preorders for its new album The Whole Love and, like the branding juggernaut Team Tweedy has become, they're raffling off a Wilco-themed bicycle restored by Todd Simeone. Simeone is one of the co-founders of the cycling-themed website Tenspeed Hero and WilcoWorld interviews Simeone about his inspiration for building the bike.

Is anyone surprised that Simeone built a single-speed bike with a fixed hub option and painted it sky blue?
