Bob's SuperSomething gravel bike - mechanical with bar end shifter
Bob reached out to us a few weeks ago looking for a complete SuperSomething Build. We chatted about sizing and a some general build kit ideas first. At 6'3" Bob was certainly a 60CM frame and wanted his handlebars more or less even with the saddle. No problems there. With a budget in mind and the desire to sprinkle in some nice USA made parts we put together this build kit with a 1x11 drive train and a bar end shifter. I've been riding my SuperSomething with a barcon and it is a really fun and simple way to shift your bike.
Bob went with the Crust Shaka bar which gives you some width with less flare and a more traditional bar shape. It was fun to put on the 700x50c Cazadero's on this build, our new Titanium Seatpost, and the DT Swiss G1800 wheelset, which is a nice budget-friendly wheelset we have been liking.
All in all this is a great SuperSomething build. A simple, mechanical bike that really doesn't break the bank. Can't wait for Bob to ride it all over the hills of Vermont and western Mass!
