An old New Zealand made steel frame I picked up in pretty rough condition, I was drawn to its colossal size and unusual geometry.
It's been a fairly long process that I'm pretty much finished with now, was gonna be a fixie conversion but it rides so sweet that I don't wanna mess with it. I ride this sucker every day and it's a great fit!
I'd always planned to go as monochromatic as possible and until I track down some yellow brake cables or powdercoat the cranks I think this is about done.
Please say hello to my jaundiced jalopy, the Cheddar Bolt!

Obviously a lot of thought and work went into this build. Your ability to have a sense of humor about is really refreshing. It must be really enjoyable to ride this bike. By the way, some friends just came back from New Zealand. They really want to move there now.

Sweet rig.

Sweet rig.





That is a cool ride. Very

That is a cool ride. Very unique and your not likely to see another one in your local group ride. You really have that yellow theme thing down!


Hey thanks you guys, I'm really happy with how it came together
