Tim saw Hampus’s bike from last years Bespoked show and was inspired! He commissioned a super cool commuter/town bike which will see duties getting him backwards and forwards to work as well as getting out for rides with the family on the weekends.
This has been a fun build, Tim knew that he wanted belt drive and bar end mounted brake levers but that was about it, he pretty much gave me a blank canvas so I got busy and this is the result.
Bi-laminate style construction, segmented forks, internal cable routing, custom bar/stem combo and Paragon sliding dropouts. It also features brushed stainless Donhou Badges with the bi-lam’ shaped in such a way that the top tube badge nestles perfectly in the scallop.
The bike’s running a Gates carbon belt system which is driving a Sturmey Archer 5 speed coaster brake hub and there’s a Sturmey 70mm drum brake dealing with all weather stopping on the front. Finished with Brooks and Velo Orange parts and painted in BMW Hot Chocolate brown pearl and Donhou Swan white this is one very handsome town bike.
