Customer Builds

This edition of Customer Builds focus' on the Nature Boy.  Check out these custom jobs.

Up first is a Nature Boy Zona put together by the folks at Jonny Rock cycles.
highlights include, a Force crankset, Ritchey WCS post and stem, what look like Phil hubs laced to Chukker's (that's a crazy strong wheelset), and TRP V-brakes. All in all, a damn fine looker.

here's a standard Nature Boy from Patrick in Bakersfield CA. Here's what he had to say "Just wanted to let you guys know how awesome I think the Nature Boy is, what I originally purchased as a beater bike has turned into my daily commuter/everyday bike! I love it." Which just confirms what we always hoped would be true, that AC makes the best "beaters" around.

jt's Nature Boy SSCX
and here's a tiny whee little NB fixed gear build from Jen. BMX stem and drop bars. Hell yes!

We'll finish today with a Nature Boy build out of Golden Saddle Cyclery in Los Angeles. Our homey Kyle Kelley, worked with the customer to make all his dreams come true. RWNB Custom.All-City!All-City!MiniMOTO!White Industries SS Crank!Chris King SS hubs to HED Belgiums!Dego!

I love my Nature Boy!! I have done nothing but add Kool Stop pads and a Brooks Narrow Champion. I love commiting no nuisance and leaving everyone in my dust around London Town on it!

What we ride:  Nick’s Space Horse

I hesitated posting pictures of my personal Space Horse build as it felt a little “braggy” to me but I really want to give you all a glimpse into where my brain is at. Buckle up and hold on. So truth be told I was never a big fan of the Space Horse. My only experience being the annual SaddleDrive industry event where I’d grab one and take it for a quick lap around the lower parking lot and back up the hill. The bikes are set up “to fit everyone” so the Space Horse always felt way too tall and uninspiring. Meh. In August of last year my opinion drastically changed.
