SHOP NEWS: I'm out of here for a few days. We'll have regular-ish hours Wednesday through Saturday this week and about 3/4 scale on mechanic work. Preston and Gus are gonna hold it down cause I'm heading to Jamaica tomorrow for a wedding. Come see these guys and hang! If you're not already aware, Gus and I (meaning Gus) started 407fixedgear.com back in the day and Preston has been riding strong for years now. They both have great product knowledge and can offer a different perspective on riding, parts, accessories, etc. Plus, neither one of these guys talk nearly as much as I do so the 1/2 hour chainring bolt conversations will be at a minimum. Thanks beauties!... Back to normal on Tuesday.

This beast was a really special build. Ryan, the owner, and I sat down and came up with a parts list that suits both commuter and mid heavy trick riding, a very difficult task to do nowadays. I think we got it dialed. What to you think? Keep an eye out for and update photo from Berlin, Germany, that's where Ryan will be next month and this baby is going with him.

Here's a perfect example of buying a complete at an excellent value then sprucing it up with just a couple of minor embellishments to make it your own.

Cardiff Locking Leather Grips
