Breaking Dawn star, Robert Pattinson, quietly purchased a beautiful blue bike from Louisiana’s premiere cycling shop Capitol Cyclery on Essen Lane — and HollywoodLife.com has the exclusive details!

Robert Pattinson is prepping to begin filming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn in Baton Rouge, Louisiana — and that means getting his extra-curriculars in order as well! The sexy actor stopped by the nicest bike shop in the area and quickly dropped $1,000 on a gorgeous blue-colored 2010 Felt Breed Cyclo-X bike– and HollywoodLife.com has the exclusive details about his shopping spree!

“Robert came in with who I think was his agent,” the Capitol Cyclery store manager told us. “He spent no more than 30 minutes picking out the bike.”

R-Patz, 24, came into the store during a quiet Sunday afternoon when there were no other customers in the shop. “I guess that’s why he felt comfortable” says the manager, describing Rob as “humble” and “very quiet.”

He added, “He didn’t strike me as a movie star when he walked in the door.”

So what went into picking one of the finest bikes available? According to the manager, Rob “wanted something for off-road, as well as on the road.” Apparently, Breaking Dawn will be shooting in a woodsy area, so this bike will be perfect for R-Patz to ride around set.

What do you think Twi-Hards? Would you spend $1000 for a brand new bike?
