A Pretty Bicycle

Posted in Random Things by Brian Park on October 22, 2009


Today I built a pretty bicycle at work; figured I’d share it on here as well. The customer was a really nice girl who wanted a pretty, functional all-weather bike and basically told us to do whatever we thought was best for her. I think it turned out really well. EDIT: I guess I should also say that it’s a Soma Buena Vista Mixte frame, with a Nexus 8 speed internal hub.

Nokon cable housing to solve a difficult routing. In the interest of clean lines we decided not to run full housing for the Nexus hub.

    although i gotta admit the spacers make me really aware of that space, like it’s a giraffe or something

    Yeah, its waiting for her to have some time on it to dial in stem height. Hopefully we’ll cut it down a few spacers, but I don’t think it looks bad as it is.

    Brian, thank you a thousand times and again for my very beautiful bike!! In case you were wondering how it was going, I very much love it (her – ‘it’ is a her), and it is riding wonderfully.

    Thank you so so much!
