cyclist Michael Barry and artist Noah Rosen have teamed up to create this truly unique ‘Pinball-inspired’ Pinarello Prince. The frame is currently being auctioned on eBay with all proceeds going towards Right To Play – “a charity set up to improve the lives of children in the most disadvantaged areas of the world by using the power of sport”.

I love the inspiration behind the design and colours…

Often, while riding in the middle of a peloton or in the midst of city traffic I have the feeling I’m the ball within the machine, bouncing off bumpers, shooting through holes, and accelerating when it is clear. When I find the flow of the peloton, or the city traffic, the feeling is sublime.
