If you saw our post about our favorite bikes from the Chris King Open House, then you'll recognize this bike, and you'll also understand why we wanted to look at it in a little bit more depth!
Mike's idea is that of making a bike that he's into buildingÃ¢â‚¬â€œwhich in some ways might seem like a no-brainerÃ¢â‚¬â€œbut given that custom builders are in many ways are building bikes for other peoples moods, they don't always get to build the bikes that they might be most into. Thinking about this though, it really seems like if you're getting a bike that the builder is stoked-on, you're most likely to get the best bike that builder can make, so it's really a win-win for everyone: the builder gets to build the bike that makes him happy to build, you get to ride the best-thought-out, most stoke-filled bike you can get from that builder!
This bike also highlights the new Chris King Matte Turquoise color, which we're really stoked-on. The matte finish of the components sets-off the deep gloss black of the fork and front triangle, while simultaneously tying in with the brushed ti of the rear! There are only four more of these bikes available, and whoever manages to snag one, is going to have a killer ride for sure.
This week's wheel build of the week is another stunning pair of Gold Chris King R45D hubs laced to ENVE Foundation 45 rims.
Made in the same Utah facility as ENVE's top of the line SES rims, these Foundation 45's (and the deeper Foundation 65's) represent one of the best value, USA made rims available sharing much of the same technology as ENVE's more expensive rims.
