If you've been checking our blog for a while, you probably saw the previous Bling Build from South Africa's Calculus Bikes that we post a while back (you can see it here). We're really stoked on this latest one though because it's got some really cool things going on: flex stays make it a linkage-driven softail design, and the Cannondale Lefty Ocho fork with one of the very last of Chris King's Lefty hubs adds to the already sleek and unique look.
The use of the titanium softail design combined with the ability to tune the leverage curve because of the linkage driven shock should make for a really sweet cross-country bike, and it should also mean that the bike will remain quiet and smooth over the long haul.
The Lefty Ocho Fork sure does give a great view of the front wheel!
When you want to go fast, Enve's super-deep SES 7.8 are at the top of a very exclusive selection of rims, and this week's Wheel Build of the Week is just about the best configuration we can think of using these gorgeous hoops.

We aim to ship out the majority of orders within 2-5 days of receiving your order. Many orders are assembled-to-order, or ordered on demand from our suppliers so can take a little longer than some other online retailers to ship out (we're a small independent retailer, not Amazon Prime!).
This allows us to offer you a much wider range of colors & specs at all times, but please consider this when ordering.
USPS is our default shipping method so most US domestic orders will take 2-5 days to arrive. For international orders this does take longer (up to 10 days in some cases), please choose an expedited shipping option from UPS or FEDEX when you checkout if you need parts faster than this!
Any questions on specs, colors, technical details please contact us.
