For this edition of Customer Builds, we're going to look at two prime examples spotted while we were in LA hanging out with the fine folks of Golden Saddle Cycery. While show bikes are cool and all, any person with enough cash in their pocket can buy a Red kit, a bunch of Enve stuff, and a Chris King headset and have a really fine bicycle. All that takes is money.
As I'm sure you noticed, Nick and I headed out Southern California a few weeks back to celebrate the launch of the new Mr. Pink with our good friends at Golden Saddle Cyclery and the Radavist. We spent a few days going on group rides, eating pizza, and living the good life in the California sun and 50-70 degree temps.
Folks, we just want to say thank you to everyone who made the launch of the new Mr. Pink so dang awesome. To our dealers who threw parties and rides and to the All-City riders who showed the new bike love, you're the best and the reason why we love our jobs so freaking much.
Now being the canny bike connoisseur that you are, you probably noticed something a bit different about this one. That's right: the Mr. Pink now utilizes our forthcoming Super Champ SL road hubs! And they're super badass, because they're super light (hence the SL) and have really terrific bearings that will last a real long time.
If you've had your eyes glued to our Instagram then you're probably aware that next weekend the new Mr. Pink drops for public view. What you might not know is that unlike other product launches where we're all "here's this shiny new thing, but you''ll have to wait a few months to get it," we're trying out something new where your local All-City dealer will actually have it in stock on their sales floor when it goes public.
We're excited to start bringing you coverage of our December tour of Japan. The trip was one of the best travel experiences of my life, meeting so many amazing people and visiting some of the most beautiful places and best bike shops in the world.
