At Brakeless Bike shop in Montreal, the best way to build a bike is from the ground up. Sylvester, founder of Brakeless and all about taking chances, created his latest personal bike, "Tentar La Suerte."

Loosely translated as "tempting fate," Sylvester's newest creation was born out of an urge to do a different looking bike that's also comfortable and fun to ride. The upshot is a bike not just with a clever name but that's also a way of life. Two HED wheels, FMF handlebars, a vintage saddle, Nitto seatpost, Sugino cranks from Japan, Odyssey twisted pedals and a YBN chain from Yaban compliment the frame, made by Canadian outfit Marinoni.

Although this is a one-of-a-kind build with an undisclosed price tag, Brakeless' creativity is for hire. Check out their collaboration with Weaponshouse for more ideas.
