I know this gallery is generally graced with touring bikes and Surly's, but we do know our way around a road bike or two here.
This bike had been sitting on the showroom floor with Ultegra Di2, which was the manufacturers spec. We had a customer very interested in the Di2, but not the whole bike and the bike was getting stale sitting there so the Di2 came off. Doing this created a problem because the frame was drilled only for electronic groups and I wanted to put a Dura Ace 9000 group on it. I had heard about a company called Ruckus Componsites (http://www.ruckuscomp.com/) in Portland who specializes in customizing and repairing carbon frames, so I sent the bike off to them to add all the necessary cable stops. And while they were at it, I wanted a gloss finish to replace the matte finish to match the much better looking Alpha Q fork I had. Ruckus did an amazing job, I am super happy with their work.
This is a one-of-a-kind Scott CR1 Premium. It is set up with a full Shimano Dura Ace 9000 component spec and carbon fiber everything (except wheels.) The full weight with pedals is 15lbs 2oz.
This bike is fast already and should see some mountains this spring!!
This bike is the reincarnation (continuation?) of the Surly Ogre we have posted earlier in the gallery. Mr. Orge was unfortunately stolen after getting a mountain bike makeover with Shimano XT 1x10 setup. The Ogre was stolen the night of the makeover!! Unbelievable but true, however we had this beautiful Disc Trucker sitting in our shop, a frame that we mistakenly ordered for one of our employees.
It turns out that the rider likes 56cm bikes and had plans to build a new touring bike anyway since his Orge lost it's touring persona and became a mountain bike. I guess the theft pushed the plans forward? Either way, this bike was created and it has a really nice spec.
Notably, we are using the TRP HY/RD disc brakes which is our first experience with them and so far are impressed. Some of the other new tech we are using is the Shimano Alfine dynamo to the new (tiny!) Busch and Muller Lumotec Eyc T Senso Plus. It puts out the same power as it's bigger brother, but less in size!! Very nice piece. We also picked up a pair of the Velocity Blunt SS rims, new for 2015, and installed 28c Gatorskins. They look so good! This bike is otherwise running a full SRAM Rival 10sp group with a Salsa rear rack and Racktime TopIt front rack.
Another Surly Straggler, a very cool build for daily city riding. The bike features SRAM Rival22 mechanical for the shifting and drivetrain. The wheels are Sun Ringle Inferno 23 rims built to the new Shimano CX75 hubs, which are amazing hubs. For brakes, we went with the Shimano CX77 disc calipers. I think the pictures do the majority of the talk here though. Take a peek!
