So. This bike will be built for the purpose of trips, recounted through stories being mostly true. So this is the concept.
It is my first modern project. Been fettling with some 80s racers and 90s mountain bikes and tourers. Having done some bike packing on my own the last four years on the bikes mentioned I decided I wanted to get something more dedicated and purpose built.
Having spent too much time searching for the perfect frame I eventually got a pretty weird, not really to my taste, but made for the very purpose Odd Cycles Randomör. You might remember Odd Cycles from the TGAC frame they did last year. Anyway it’s made from steel, quite heavy and in a colour I will have to learn to appreciate.
Here’s a pic of the frame. Since it was taken I changed all the hardware to black. Thinking all black everything is the only way I could live with this colour. Unfortunately the wheels I got built came with silver nipples
Although I had asked for black ones.
Wheels you say? Kinlin 22 Son front, Miche back.
