Mark came to us from Atlanta, he was looking for a bike that he was going to keep in Portland while visiting family here. Mark is one of those kinds of customer that liked what he saw us making and wanted us to make him something that would be in line with our interests. He wanted a single speed bike for running around town with, with the ability to go on longer rides if the mood struck. We built a bike with brushed stainless steel lugs and fork crown, and built up a parts package that emphasized a classic bike feel. The resulting bike was given the prize of best city bike at the 2011 North American Handmade Bike Show in Austin Texas. We are honored to accept the award.
