Cool read and stunning photography. Bike looks real pretty too...just wish we knew more about it! My hunch is a modern custom frame. I can make out “Enigma” on the downtube in one of the photos. Perhaps from this company? https://www.enigmabikes.com/

I checked both his blog and his IG, no mention of the bike. But a flood of new followers commenting on his posts after reading the NYT article so perhaps he’ll do a feature on it soon enough.

I do most of my riding at dawn and at sunset - usually 10 times a week. You become very aware of where the sun rises and it is noticeable how each day is slightly different, both with flora and fauna in ways I never thought discernible. The light captured in these photos only lasts for ten to fifteen minutes and to capture it perfectly and so often with wonderful compositions is very impressive.

Nice selfies.
I don't do: disks, tubeless, e-shifting, or bead head nymphs.
