There’s even _one & only one_ hand-painted maple themed one that was done by a kung-fu master(maybe)!

It’s hard to beat the awesomeness of a cyclocross bike. But one way to do it is to have it be a kid’s version! This little guy has 24″ wheels & a wee frame for those budding cyclocrossers in our lives.

Here is a sweet setup that we had the pleasure of doing for a very good customer.

It utilizes the White Industries Double Double crankset & freewheel. It essentially allows two different gear ratios while maintaining the simplicity of a single speed setup.

Mustache bar makes the cockpit super comfy.

Brooks saddle & Acorn saddle bag class it up like no other can.

Another fine hand-built wheelset round things off nicely!

We had such a good turnout that we unfortunately ran out of food before one o’clock. We did raise over $55 for Think Bicycles, though!
