Nov 10.18 – Liv’s DSS1+
After reading glowing reviews of the DSS1 online, Liv got in contact enquiring if we could build her one. Liv comes from Norway and with a host of excellent gravel roads in close proximity to where she lives, she asked if there was anything we could do. Unknown to her at the time, we also offer the DSS1 in a road plus version, the DSS1+. This is essentially a DSS1 with clearance for tires up to 32c.
It’s not a gravel bike, this one we still class as a road machine, but the DSS1+ just gives you more options. Its perfect for someone who may only hit gravel or the odd bridle way a few times a year and the rest of the time, just wants a highly capable road machine. The DSS1+ is incredible for smoothing out 4 season miles down quite country lanes, all while still retaining the fast and fun ride of the DSS1. The DSS1+ also comes standard with thru axles and flat mount disc mounts.
Liv opted for custom sizing for her build and I’m pretty sure this is the smallest DSS bike built to date. Liv wanted to keep the spirit of the original DSS fade but still make it her own. Liv’s love of BMX bikes meant we moved the fade panel up to the top tube as a nod to a BMX pad. We switched out the lime for an incredible pink to teal fade and added the red to the background of the logo band. Shouldn’t work, but boy does it. The red sings. Keep your eye’s peeled for this one flashing by in and around Oslo…
