Jeremy’s Disc CX-Commuter

I had finished  this frame for Jeremy, my first local Denver customer, a little while back. The bike was designed around a cyclo-cross geometry, but has the capacity to run fenders and a rear rack for commuting, and plenty of room for some fat tires for a little gravel grinding.

It took some time to get the components together for the final build, but the wait was worth it and the bike is now decked out in some primo parts. The wheels are disc Industry Nine hubs laced to Velocity Aileron rims and TRP Spyre brakes. Drivetrain is Shimano Ultegra with White Industries VBC cranks. For the contact points we have a Thompson stem and seat post, Fizik Arione saddle, Ritchey bars, and a Cane Creek 100 headset. Jeremy went with a really cool Porsche Lime Gold paint color, which is detailed with bluish-purple logos.

Denver was granted with a little break from the cold winter weather this past weekend, and Jeremy  was able to take the bike out for it’s maiden voyage. It needs a few small tweaks to get it totally dialed, but he had this to say about his first ride “Literally best fitting bike I’ve had. I was looking for bumps and cracks in the road for fun.” Not bad coming from a guy that is a former pro-class mountain bike racer and has spent most of his working life in the bicycle industry.
