This is a bike that came in for a tune up, so we had nothing to do with the build. However, this bike is a bit of a work of art...
This bike will sure to satisfy both hipsters and bike nerds alike. For the hipsters, there are some sweet 26" Aerospoke wheels. Why? Because, that's why. For the bike nerds, there is a Paul front derailleur and cable stops. Yea, Paul made a front derailleur, and a rear too! As one reviewer best put this mechanism, "It's 3x the price of XTR and works half as good, but it's pretty!" Finally, the Kooka cranks are nice touch.
This bike goes to show you that even though technology changes, companies change, and trends change, quality never goes out of style.
