It’s been a while folks so I’ll be posting a flurry a bikes I’ve built over the past couple of months starting…NOW. This light touring/commuter bike was built for SJ. Some of the details include a custom front rack that “hugs” the front brake caliper, semi-horizontal rear dropouts for the option of running it as a single speed, chain slap protector brazed onto the chain stay, and the 20mm extension on the upper head tube lug to get the bars higher in a more aesthetically pleasing manner. The paint is one of my favorite paint jobs I’ve done all year. The colors work so well together on the bike but melted my mind when I tried to visualize it. Check it out.
It’s always an honor to paint bikes for Velouria of Lovely Bicycle blog fame. This mixte was made by Bryan Hollingworth of Royal H Cycles. The color is difficult to see but it’s a sage-like green.
See the full slideshow.
And I’m still making weird freewheel sizes if anyone needs one for their pedicab/hillclimbing/retro-direct bicycle. This a 24 tooth that I made recently.
