Custom Birthday Bike!

11 Jul

Check out this custom build that just got put together over at the BROADWAY store.

It’s a birthday present for a very good friend of RIDE ON owner DON and is currently en route to Toronto.

Hope it’s not ruining the element of surprise, but here are a few snaps and a run down of what went into this custom build!

Don eyed up a nice looking Diamond Back, 4130 chromoly MTB frame and forks that looked like a perfect size, stripped it down and sent it off to get powdercoated.

That’s about all that remains of the original bike, we built up a couple of custom wheels, with quality rims laced to WHITE INDUSTRIES hubs, then even found a WHITE INDUSTRIES crankset to go on too!

Full Shimano Deore Groupset, some LX, some XT to keep everything shifting and stopping smoothly. Up front Don went for a T-BONE stem and a pair of comfort kick back bars. Speaking of comfort, he even got a BROOKS saddle custom engraved with a few choice words by local artist Ken Diamond.

To turn this once off road machine into a full leisurely commuter we put on Electra Townie fenders, slick Kenda Tires, DX pedals and with the shorter taller stem and bars its definitely more at home around the city.

Imagine waking up to this on your Birthday!
