Andrew’s Steel Road

“I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I love the bike I picked up from you last week. It’s phenomenal. Handles likes a dream, looks sick as hell, and flies as fast as I can muster.”

Like a breath of fresh air. The latest and greatest in modern steel. I love how this Road bike came together for Andrew. The Apex DLX finish design turned out so good in Andrew’s custom colors. Fast, Enve Smart Aero System wheels on Ceramic bearing Chris King hubs add speed with quick acceleration, aerodynamics, stability and sure-footed descending. Andrew worked with a local fitter to dial in an ideal position and we translated that setup to his custom geometry. This keeps him in a comfortable and efficient position with the geometry tuned to work great with his setup.
