Your spokes are jokes.

Broken Brooks with torn leather was cut down and frame shrunk & rewelded into a mini brooks, made by my co-worker. 22.2 Primo Rod.

Where we're going we don't need roads.

Cafe racers are the new fixies.

Original Schwinn scooter disc brake, 140mm 3 bolt rotor. V-pull lever.

I can't remember if I was going to take out a link or add a spacer to fix this problem.

Custom home made 12" wheel 135/10 bolt on with bi-plane crown and 30mm travel. Extra light springs tuned for 30 pound rider weight.

In November 2014, a challenge between staff at the Community Cycling Center bike shop was proposed by one of our mechanics. The nature of the challenge was to build a balance bike of the builders own design, in 3 weeks time out of found and recycled materials. 5 people participated, and this is my entry. This thing is in keeping with my penchant for wide rubber, extraneous systems, heavy bikes and rad shit. This and the other 4 bikes my co-workers made are part of an auction that ends December 17th, 2014, if you would like to know more please check out http://www.communitycyclingcenter.org/index.php/5-hand-crafted-balance-bikes-up-for-bids-balance-bike-build-off-auction/

Future shredders for a better tomorrow.
