It's no secret that we love seeing the bikes you (our customers) build with the parts you get from us, and this bike has quite the collection! 

The rider who built this bike did so as a bit of a project to bring together a wide range of ideas: he's a Rick Hunter fan (we're with him there!), hence the Smooth Move bars; the parts from White Industries and Paul Component tied in both with the Made in USA theme of the bike, and just the small, independent (sorry!) nature of all of the major parts of the bike.  Finally, it's a Joker themed bike, hence the green and purple theme.

We get a kick out of the bi-coastal origins of this bike with its East Coast Indy Fab frameset that's covered in parts from out West.  It's also hard not to notice the style of the bike: a mountain bike that's set up for general cruising.  This is the type of bike that so many of us have and ride a lot, whether it's for getting around town, just heading out for a ride where you don't know what we'll end up doing, or just about any other smaller trip.  It's the kind of bike that's a lot of fun to have, even if you're unlikely to go out an try to crush KOMs on it, and so some might not put as much effort into building it up.  Making the effort to build something that's going to work great–and look the way you want it to–just makes the experience of riding it that much more fun, so we're stoked to see a great example of that!

This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.

Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
