I built up a new cross bike for an Portlander yesterday with Nitto Moustache bars, but forgot to take pictures of the finished bike. Trust me, it looked pretty cool and after his first test ride said it rode "f'in awesome!"
I did manage to get some pictures of what I call a neo-retro road bike build I did for Bill in New York who is planning on racing this in the retro class at the Furnace Creek 508. It was pretty coincidental that Bill called up to commission this build as I was pondering a similar build kit that I'll offer. I like the look of the bike with the down tube shifters. I think I may have to build myself a simple, stripped down road bike like this.
The other bike that got built up was Ari's bike that he'll use for some endurance races in the mid-west this year. Ari works at a bike shop and did the build himself. I'm liking the white with the orange. The white bar tape with the orange frame remind me of some of Eddy Merckx's old rides.
Also got a really neat set of wheels built for Bill's Salsa Mukluk. The blue NoTubes Flow rims come from project321.com.
