We love doing custom builds over here. Ordering every part of a bike separately costs a little more, but it lets you decide exactly what you want and build something unique.

Over the last few years I've been interested in touring, but thwarted by some persistent wrist problems. After going through different styles of bikes, fits, and exercises, I decided that it was time to get to business riding again even if long hauls on a traditional bike weren't in the cards. I made an appointment with Zach Kaplan Cycles, the Bay Area's recumbent and trike specialist (and conveniently located in Alameda), and had a blast test riding a number of recumbent bikes before ordering an AZUB recumbents Six. It's currently being welded up in the Czech Republic, but I've included a stock photo below.

To tide me over, I've been building wheels and getting all of the components selected. I'll be riding on Velocity USA Aeroheat rims, and have a SonDeluxe generator hub, to power lights and a phone charger. Most of the drive-train is made up of SRAM GX parts, in this case a solid 10 speed mountain double. The rear shock is from FOX, the front is from MRP. The brakes are Shimano SLX.

I'll update here with more pictures when it's all built up. In the meantime, check out another of our custom builds over on Instagram: www.instagram.com/p/BQv4b4wBbu4/?taken-by=alamedabicycle

Thanks for reading,
Jim

All of our Optic Nerve sunglasses are half-off until we run out!

We know you haven't seen a lot of sun in the last few weeks, but reliable sources inform us that it still exists, so be prepared.
