Bicycle art and design of Garrett Chow
From the co-creation of MASHSF to bicycle paint schemes for cyclocross star Zdeneck Stybar and Tour de France winner Alberto Contador, Garrett has been a continual inspiration in the bicycle industry with designs, illustrations and paint jobs over the years.
When asked “which came first , bikes or design?” Chow replies: The tired cliché that as a designer, one’s job never really “shuts off” sadly holds more truth than a lot of us would prefer to admit. Devoted cyclists seem to hold a similarly unflagging sense of commitment and allegiance to their two-wheeled pursuits—whether it’s through constant training, watching one’s diet, or wrenching on bikes, it seems like there never enough hours in the day. I’d say that both pursuits intertwine to occupy the larger focus in my life, and seemingly in equal measure.
