We built this beautiful Merivale 8 speed cruiser for Charlie to take to Bespoked this year,
He wanted to build a frame that would be super supple and forgiving, not built for speed, built for comfort.
We specced 700 x 36c Challenge strada Bianca tyres to give that ultra smooth roll. Shimano alfine 8 speed hub, on polished Halo rims.
Velo orange bars, stem, post, and crank, Pauls components ‘Motolite’ brakes and ‘love’ levers, and a ‘thumbie’ to use a microshift shifter to actuate the Alfine hub.
Shes rides so smooth!
Good luck at the show Charlie!
