2012 Custom Built Black Chrome Road Bike. With a tight, track style geometry; it is very responsive and fun to ride. Made of 6061 aluminum and finished in a metallic powdercoat. The goal was to take an average, inexpensive frame and make it awesome.

Sweet ride. I agree about road bikes all looking the same. Looks great.


It's great to see someone doing a more creative build on a geared bike. Looks excellent!

Thanks, Trill!

That was the goal. Roadies all seem to look alike these days.

Pretty awesome build. I love

Pretty awesome build. I love using bull horns on a geared road bike, I dig the shifters. Also, black chrome + anodized red is a pretty sweet looking. How do you like the aerospokes? That thing must hold momentum pretty well.


With the requisite admission that there are definitely lighter wheels out there, I like them fine! Being a bigger rider negates that for me. It does carry itself along, though!
