classic steel road bike restored

This classic lugged, steel framed Trek has traveled the country and finally made it back to it's original owner here in Denver, the Queen City.

We didn't have to replace much, tires, housing. Our neighbor requested a handlebar conversion and so we accommodated his request.

Overhaul completed by Queen City Cycle.
overhauling frame, hubs, botttom bracket, headset....
new Panaracer 27" tires and tube.
Handle bar conversion featuring Ouray grips.

generator light system

Recently a neighbor brought his new Raleigh city bike to our shop for a custom dynamo light system.  Although generator light systems do not generally come stock on new bicycles these days they should!

I can not emphasize how fantastic it is to have a light system that is only reliant on the movement of your front hub. No need to worry about re-charging batteries, removing the lights everytime you lock up your bike, or weather.

Take a look for inspiration...

Shimano Alfine Dynamo Hub

Edelux II, Schmidt's latest version.
with a standlight so the LED head light remains on for minutes
when the rider makes stops in traffic.

B&M tail light with a brake sensor
the light indicates when the cyclist is braking,
standlight feature also.

Not shabby ehh?

Motebecane, French Mixte, Overhauled

A classic that is maintained and cared for is certainly a joy to ride.

Ethan completed the overhaul earlier this Winter on this classic French mixte.  Then the owner decided to add a new Brook's Leather saddle for it's crowning glory.

Soma San Marcos Custom Build

After moving from Denver to California, one of our former neighbors placed a special order for a road bike that will withstand the Northern California Trails.
Ethan recommended the San Marcos frame set because it blends the comfort of a touring bike with the sportiness of a road bike. This bicycle will see many dirt trails, asphalt, and hopefully a few off-road campgrounds too.

Features include:
SKS fenders
bespoke whee set
Phil Wood hubs
Velocity rims
NITTO stem and handlbars
Sugino cranks
Dia Compe stem shifter mounts.
