Custom Builds

We recently had a request for a Rohloff tourer… Ended up building this beast! Great fun to build with sich nice components and we know this will get used to it’s full potential out in the wilderness!

Built up this beast of a 29+ recently for smashing around the woods and bike packing… It’s a tank! I have since upgraded the wheels for Hope Pro 4 Hubs and CX Rays with the same Stans Hugo Rims and it’s now set up tubeless using stans tape and sealant. I drilled the seat tube on the non-drive side near the base of the tube to accommodate internal dropper post routing… The tubes being 4130 butted means they’re plenty strong enough to take a 5mm hole without problems… We’ve figured out that you can run a short cage Zee mech with an 11-42T sunrace 10sp cassette without the need for a longer B-Screw which offers a massive wide range if you want to only run a single ring up front (The Hunt is built to be run single ring only)

SBC-SurlyKarateMonkey-4

We built this single speed 29er for Mark a while ago and just realized we forgot to blog it!

Surly Karate Monkey Special Ops. Love the orange lacquer over the raw steel!
Gusset 44mm Mix n Match headset so you can run a tapered suspension fork if you want.
Chinese Carbon Bars, Stem and Post. Cheap weight saving if you trust it 😉
Continental X-King Tyres for a bit of an all-rounder
Dt Swiss Wheels M1900
Shimano Deore Brakes
Shimano Zee Crank
KMC Chain
Gusset SS Cog
Madison Flux Saddle

Switch the drop outs and it’ll take a geared drive chain. The 44mm headtube and 1-1/2″ bottom headset cup mean it’ll take a tapered suspension fork easily too.
The wheels also come with interchangeable axles/end caps, so can be switched between QR or Through axle in seconds.

We built this Surly Straggler for Andrew as a super comfortable solid commuter and potential tourer.

Raleigh True Built wheels
Panaracer Pasela 37c tyres
Shimano deore groupset
Avid BB5 disc brakes
brand x bars
Madison Flux saddle
Axiom rack
VP sealed pedals
Pit lock security skewers
Kryptonite mini Dlock

This is Bobby’s insane Chromed Surly Pugsley – Full bike check over at SKULL BIKE CLUB

We built this surly for Bleddyn a couple of months before opening the shop. Its already well used and looking nice and ratty.

We used his old wheels, Hope pro 2 to Hplus Archetype
His old cranks off his fixed gear, Raceface Decadence with a wide narrow 44T chainring.
His old seatpost and brooks saddle.
We sourced a old 25.4 thomson stem off ebay and used a xlt touring bar for a comfy bar position with odi lock on grips.
Tyres are our favourite tan wall 35c Panaracer Pasela and sks mudgaurds.
Avid V-brakes with Kool Stop Salmon pads.
Xpedo pedals.

Favourite part is the drive setup.
11-36 cassette with a Shimano Zee clutch mech and XT shifter. It gives you enough range for commuting and is lighter and looks cleaner than running a front mech or chainguide.

Another cool Surly Straggler build this week. This ones a bit more off road capable and a LOT bigger.

 

64cm Surly Straggler
Cane creek Forty Headset
XT Triple Chainset
XT Shifters and Mechs
XT Brakes with solid Hope Rotors
Hope Pro 2 Evo Hubs laced to H+Son Archetype with Sapim Race
Continental Race Sport Tyres – 29×2.0 Rear / 29×2.2 Front
Brooks B17 saddle
Gusset Seatpost
King Cage Bottle Cage and Cargo Cage
Time ATAC XC Pedals

The coolest part of this build is the bars. Nitto B903 Bullmoose imported from Fairweather Japan.
Gives a really nice vintage MTB look to the bike that works nice on a steel frame with a lugged fork like this.
Width:710mm
Extension:90mm
Back sweep:15°
Grip area size:22.2mm
1 1/8″ Ahead Stem
