A lot of us have a bit more time on our hands that we might like, and sometimes it's not entirely clear how to best use it.  Here at AVT, we think that this is an ideal time not only to give your bikes some of the maintenance that might not get done as often as anyone would like (check out our YouTube channel for how-to videos on some of that 😉), but also to finish those long-considered bike projects that just might not get the time they deserve because life gets in the way. 

This bike is one of the latter projects that has been slowly coming together over the course of the last year or so. 

Kellan's Townie

The bike is built around a frame–a Raleigh One Way–that in itself isn't anything too special, but which had the tire clearances, brake mounts, low-key look, and singlespeed design that Kellan was looking for.  Built-up, the bike just looks right, and the black frame with white decals is shows just how good a mix of black and silver parts can look on a bike.

Kellan built this up primarily as a sweet townie, but it might end up doing double duty as a singlespeed cross bike in some local races.  Oh the beauty of a singlespeed😉.

The parts breakdown is as follows:

Frame: Raleigh One-Way

Fork: Kona Project 2

Headset: White Industries EC34

Bottom Bracket: White Industries Square Taper

Crankset: White Industries VBC

Chainring: White Industries TSR

Hubs: White Industries track

Cogs: White Industries ENO Freewheel, and White Industries ENO track cog

Rims: DT Swiss R460

Tires: WTB Exposure 36

Brakes: Paul Mini Moto

Brake Levers: Paul Canti

Handlebar: Nitto Bullmoose

Seatpost: Thomson Elite

Saddle: Selle Italia ProLink

Grips: ESI Chunky

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.
