here is james' custom bike. it is the first time i have built a frame around a gear hub and disc brakes. it turned out looking super traditional but with the modern features of an 11 speed gear hub and discs. james approached me wanting a bike that he could ride in various situations, on the road, down country lanes as well as rides through the woods with his kids. he wanted a super clean look so i made sure to hide as much cable and fittings as possible. I am super happy with the way the frame turned out, especially the curvy lines of the rear end and all the cable routing. other fun aspects of this build was hand carving the disc mount and making the jig to fit it too.
what we ended up with is in my opinion one of the nicest bike i have produced to date. clean and traditional with a modern twist, thats the best thing about doing what i do, putting your own twist on things.
