Univega Tri-Star Deluxe

The color on this great old Univega is hard to show in the photos but its a beautiful sun-faded red.  Besides that, this bike is a joy to ride. It’s a rebuild on a japanese lugged steel frame. All parts have been replaced with the exception of the original frame, matching fenders, and chainguard. A lot of our favorite parts make an appearance on it like Pasela tires, cork grips, Sturmey Archer internal 3 speed wheelset, wald handlebar.

Raleigh Grand Prix Refurbished Bike Update at Pedal Revolution

Pedal Revolution built up this classic Raleigh Grand Prix frame set with new parts transforming it from a 10 speed of yester-year to a perfect contemporary city bike.

New bottom bracket and headset started it off, followed by our favorite chrome Sun M13/sealed bearing wheel set. We ditched the old down tube shifters for a easier to reach Suntour ratcheting stem shifter set to handle gear changing duties.

Next a comfortable upright handlebar matched to Shimano brake levers with real cork grips.

For reliable stopping power in a long reach caliper we went with the Dia Compe top pull brake set. Panaracer Pasela tires, some white housing, and a riveted saddle for a little flair and its good to go.

Raleigh is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world. It became The Raleigh Cycle Company in December 1888. Below is a great film documenting their bicycle creation process from 1945:

 

Bridgestone Single Speed Build

Luke, from the new restaurant Trou Normand in the beautiful and historic 140 New Montgomery building, had been sitting on this nice Bridgestone frameset for awhile and came to Pedal Revolution for a complete build (wheels, stem, bar, cranks, headset… everything!).

It’s hard to believe that the humble Surly Cross Check, a practical and versatile work horse could be transformed into such a bespoke upright machine. The cross-check becomes a cross town?

The owner selected the color scheme with only a few staff parts suggestions.  The major modifications besides the paint were the swapping of the Soma Oxford Handlebar and attendant parts with the addition of a Brooks Saddle, leather bar wrap, Soma Xpress 35mm Terra Cotta walled Tires and stunning gilded Honjo fenders.
