This bike is going to be ridden on the desert tarmac of the United Arab Emirates! I hope Lucas is as excited to have the bike as I have been to build it for him. I never expected the bikes I made to go farther than the back roads of Rhode Island so this is great. Circle A does have bikes in far away places but Dubai is a first. We hope Lucas can keep the sand out of the drivetrain and stay hydrated in the 120° heat. Enjoy!
[UPDATE 9.7.2013] Just got a great shot of the bike in its new environment. I’m blown away by the bike path’s flatness and the barren terrain. I hope there’s some water at the end of that stretch!
