BBC has lined up the ten top prettiest bicycles on the planet featuring Viks (pictured), handcrafted in Estonia.

The BBC list included bikes made in the UK and France, as well as Singapore and Japan. «Given single-speed cyclists' pathological fixation with minimalism, Estonia's Velonia – a boutique studio founded and manned by Indrek Narusk – has lopped off the seat tube right where it stood. The resulting bicycle, the Viks, is a noodly abstraction fashioned from just two steel tubes, joined at the head tube below the handlebar,» wrote BBC. 

By Designboom, Viks was elected among world’s top ten bicycle designs of 2013.
