Made-to-order Custom Winter Bike Build
Greetings from Finland-the international home of winter!
even in June you can some of the white stuff hiding behind the rocks in the shadows!!
I am working at a LBS that does made-to-order frames.
It took 3 days to get it all sorted out-
started with measuring the client,
the client wanted a rohloff
the frame was made with the special bottom bracket shell so vertical drops can be used
We laced and trued the wheels with sapim stainless spokes.
shimano disc front
studded tires and plastic fenders.
A few small things to iron out
-shorten the hyd-brake cables,
-install lights and a trip computer.
-wait for clients choice of pedals
we gave it a test drive- I now appreciate the rohloff-so much easier then deraileurs, just click to the next ratio and no fumbling with the thumbshifters with your mittens on-
it was -18c today and it was a nice run around the neighborhood!
these are temporary pedals,we wait for the clients choice
reflective tires was a great invention
more pictures on Friday
