City Bike on an old C’dale racing frame

I slapped this together for my daughter… it’s a small frame, but super maneuverable in traffic. And FAST.

105 derailleur, Suntour thumb shifter, RD100 brakes and crank, CrossTop levers, Weinmann rims on generic sealed bearing freewhell hubs, and a Brooks B17 saddle. Jamis moustache bars, wrapped with thick and springy black bar tape.

  • Comet Voodoo with Bigass Bennetts, wedged front with a SC Cruise Missile riser, Alligator 70mm 78a and Builtins
  • Arbor Pintail with Tracker Fulltrax, Alligator 62mm 79a and RocknRon’s Nuclear Rockets

Comments:

Conspiracy gets cruised around skateparks mostly. I love this thing, if you have one and want to let it go, please PM.

RoseBones is a fun sidewalk cruiser and ditch board. I just set it up last week, so not much mileage… but Orions are WAY better than Indys due to shorter wheelbase: gives it more pop and maneuverability.

Comet just got set up tonight.. but seems like it’ll be awesome. I live at the top of a 200′ drop gravel drive, so no where to test it.

Pintail with Trackers obviously does not turn… but that’s OK, because it is low and stable, great for the half-mile cruise from the parking spot to the office.

Suave, flanked by Stoopid. Recipe for the bodhisatva hangover.
