[Bike Lust] Independent Fabrication Rohloff 29er, Stinner Lefty Rohloff 29er, 611 Lugged 650B, Groovy Cycleworks Rat Rod Custom Mountain Bike
This steel 29″ hardtail from Independent Fabrication has a sweet build and sick custom paintjob. The custom hardtail has a Rohloff 500/14 rear hub that has been set up to use disc brakes and is belt driven. The paint job on this bike really stands out to me. I love the two tone “Gulf Oil” theme color choice and the custom painted fork really completes the look.
This Stinner is a stunner! This bike is also Rohloff equipped but the frame has been designed to route the cabling internally. The routing is super slick and really cleans up the bike. The Rohloff hub is set up as a belt drive with Rotor cranks and for suspension duties they went with a Lefty fork.
611 Custom Lugged Steel 650B
611 has built a up a stellar looking custom 650B mountain bike. This 650B is built using custom lugged construction. The paint job done on this bike is really trick. They did matte black lugs with grey metal flake paint on the tubes and then applied gold paint to the lug lining. Bitchin!
Groovy Cycleworks does some incredible custom paint jobs on his bikes. For this bike he’s pulled off a weathered Rat Rod motif. I’m really digging the aged look. You won’t feel so bad when you scratch it for the first time, because it just adds to the patina.
