Rainy days make for productive bike building time. Here are a few that went onto the floor this week…
This bike is gorgeous and I wish it fit me. Motobecane touring frame completely rebuilt with very nice parts from Sugino, Nitto, Brooks, Shimano and Continental. It is sized for a tall individual. My current favorite in the shop right now. 63cm Seatube with a 59cm Toptube – $875.
Here are a few detail shots..
Here is another of our mechanic Ken’s specialty builds. He calls them “ramblers”. Other descriptions that would be accurate are all-rounder, do-all road bike, or touring bike without the high price tag, etc. Ken is great at seeing creative potential in frames like these. This one is a full rebuild into a very comfortable more upright positioned road/touring set up. 50cm – $450!
Sweet white with blue paint splatter paint job.
Classy Shimano 600 brake levers.
Here is another Ken build. Nice Miyata triple butted lugged steel frame rebuilt with all new parts.
A few detail shots…
Miyata Triple Cross 700. 54cm –
Here is a rebuilt variation on an older mtn bike frame that converts nicely into a bombproof city bike with grocery getting capabilities. Comfortable on road and off. Excellent do-all commuter for a steal. 19″ –
Looks the rain is gonna stick around for awhile. More bikes coming soon….
