NAHBS Preview :: Bike 2

As part 2 of our 5 part preview we have another bike going to NAHBS this year. This is a Titanium Deluxe 29'er set up for winter riding (or shredding as the case might be).

Safety and durability were 2 of the main concerns we wanted to address when undertaking this project. The high visibility paintjob and reflective decals and accessories make for riding at night much safer, which also happens far more frequently this time of year.

The studded Nokian tires also make for a much more stable ride on the ice that is everywhere this time of year (especially here in New England).


The internally geared SRAM i-motion 9 speed rear hub keeps those gears shifting even when the drivetrain is covered in icy sludge.

Simple and minimal full cable housing keeps the muck out of the lines.

Disc brakes also make for more predictable and powerful stopping.

This bike also features full size stainless steel fenders to keep you dry and a waterproof BaileyWorks rack bag (also with a highly reflective element) to keep your spare pair of socks dry.

I don't get the Corvid SS (unless I think back to my 3rd floor Somerville days, carrying bike and bag up from the street in one trip) but I do get this bike! I'm dreaming up something along these exact lines - for once, Jamie's (I suspect) and my aesthetics match exactly. Not that I don't appreciate his other visions, particularly the black steel two speed, which is someone's amazing 3 season commuter/city bike. This new bike is one cool commuter. Go Jamie and IF!!

All it needs is a dyno hub and lots of lights :)

Sweet. The studded knobs looks awesome as well.

who makes those fenders?!

Fenders are from Gilles Berthoud. They come in different length but these are way to short and will cover your feet and drivetrain min muck. Would also like to issue a warning for the longterm durability of the SRAM 9-sp hub.

The author has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: No truth is universal, everything has its exception. Thanks for the info penis enlargement penis enlargement pills VigRX Plus
