We love riders's creations. A great customized-built bike always grabs our attention, especially special one like this bike.
Our friend wanted a flat bar commuting & cross bike particular for his daily riding base. He started with a tangerine EVERYMILE A+frame set, and choose not to buy any super pricy group set on this bike this time, so he pulled off his SHIMANO XT 9speed from his old mountain bike and collected White Industries NEO crankset and Paul Chain Keeper & Microshift Thumbie to build his unique 1x9 speed drivetrain. The bike is finally juiced up with Ritchey cockpits, Paul Canti Lever and Velo Orange Grand Cru Zeste cantilever brakes. Believe me, 9 speed is not totally dead yet and still quite enough for most riding occasions.
Thanks our friend to share images with us and PINECONE WORKS for their professional mechanical support.
