More Pic’s of Paul’s 650b Travel bike

Now that Paul has had a chance to try out his new bike, I can remove the black tube coverings for all to see.

The bike feature’s a navy metallic paint sprayed by Ernie Leyva of Leyva Unique Designs in Denton, TX. The navy is complemented by the polished stainless couplers and the polished Reynolds 953 chain stays. The silver decals are the “Gallus Gentleman” logo designed by Jared Stone,  who also designed my website.

The bike has a Campagnolo Comp Triple groupset along with  650b Velocity Synergy rims, Panaracer Tires, White Industries hubs, Paul Comp canti brakes(polished), Ti Phil Wood Bottom Bracket, Thompson Seat Post,  Nitto Stem and Bars, and last but not least stainless H2o Cages and bar tape from local cycling legends turned bicycle accessory magnates Arundel.

The bike also has a set of hammered Honjo fenders, but Paul wanted to keep them off for now because he will be packing the bike up soon for a trip to NYC. I will get some more pics taken, maybe even professional ones, when Paul is back and the fenders are installed.

In the meantime, here is a short sequence of the front and rear racks that I designed and made for this bike. They come apart completely, allowing them to be packed  flat into the S & S case. The were chrome plated by Al’s Plating here in FTW.

  1. The bike is riding great. It is very easy to ride hands off. The bike is very stable and enjoys being thrown a little bit into sharp turns. I’ve only got 20 miles on it, but the 650b tires don’t seem to slow the bike down any, the tires really soak up a lot of pavement chatter.

  2. Great bike, wonderful construction and paint job. Glad to have seen this bike in person today at the Texas Custom Bike show. Now I really want to convert to 650b! : )
