What Euro Crisis? :: Citrus Squeeze

Our friends at Bike Boutique in Holland recently sent us some build pics of this special hot lime steel Deluxe.

Jaap and his crew place a lot of emphasis on the small details that make the whole special.  Check out the custom stay protector and the tied and soldered spokes on the Enve/Chris King wheel build.

Would you like a slice of melon hubs with your lime frame?  If you haven't held one of the new SRAM  XX cassettes in your hands yet, I highly recommend it.  It is just a piece of machined art, and I hear through the grapevine a glimpse of what's to come with the update to the Red road group.

Plenty of stopping power and Tune skewers to match the hubs.

Chris and Phil put a lot of hours into the custom painted Niner carbon fork.  Seems like an anachronism to put a rigid carbon fork on a steel frame, but the design of this fork somehow just works well with the classic lines of the frame.

A deluxe Deluxe indeed.

Thanks Jaap for sharing the pics!
