As Iowa’s first official bicycle friendly business, The Broken Spoke continues its bronze level certification by the League of American Bicyclists for another four years!

Here is a brand new 2013 Cross Check that got built up for a customer from a stock build with some minor customizations!
Here is a Cross Check that is single-speeded out. The customer who bought this is planning on doing Trans-Iowa on it!
Normally, the single speed Cross Check comes with a flat bar. But with a little swapping out of some key components, we have a much better suited drop bar version of it!
Here are some more hand-built wheels to come out of the shop this winter for some fine people!
Here is a beefy commuter wheel that should be a ‘set it & forget it’ component. It’s a Shimano Deore hub laced up to a Sun Rhyno Lite rim with 36 Wheelsmith straight-gauge spokes. The driveside spokes are silver, whilst the non-driveside are black. This results in a nice alternating black/silver pattern at the rim!
This is the front of a wheelset for a Surly Long Haul Trucker to be ridden year-round. It has yet another Shimano generator hub laced up to an Adventurer rim. It is using black DT alpine spokes to keep the hub married to the rim. A 700x40mm Nokian studded tyre is all business!
Now here is an awesome project I had the pleasure of doing for a customer!
The after: The Nuvinci N360 is a continuously variable planetary internally geared hub. What this means is that it has an infinite gear range between the lowest & highest gears. The shifter acts as an analogue dial that results in _always_ being in a gear. There are no missed shifts or clunky shifting with this set-up! A Paul Melvin chain tensioner was used since the Rockhopper has vertical dropouts. A chainguard keeps things neat. A keen eye will also see that the fork got replaced.
