    Gearhead 24 dirt/park/street/fun bike

    Hey all! Check it.


    Latest bike we built for a customer. Gearhead Bicycles is a teeny-tiny bike shop in Norcal (Pacifica, CA) and we produce this bike through our partnership w/ Bicycle Fabrications (of SWD Racing fame). This particular bike was built for a guy who is also a big fan of Budweiser (to each his own) and now sports a custom Budweiser themed sticker kit made for him by his neighbor who works for Bud. I'll post pics soon.
    Frame is hand built 4130 straight gauge cro-mo main frame w/ tapered chainstays and laser cut 14mm dropouts (soon to be cnc'd), Mid bb and campy style headtube from Solid Bikes, u-brake mounts and 25.4 seat tube.
    Build kit is Profile hubs, cranks and seat clamp, Alienation Black Sheep rims, DT/Swiss d.b. white spokes, Marzocchi DJ 1 fork w/ travel lowered at the factory, Premium pedals, DMR Wingbar, and Race Face stem(Does anyone have any thoughts on stems, I think this one is kind of ugly but couldn't really find anthing better when I was spec-ing this), Fly brakes, macniel post, oddysey saddle, Animal grips and linear cable, Shadow conspiracy red anno aluminum rear axle nuts, TRP lever, S and M shield logo 25t cr (9t driver), Tomac small block 8 and K-rad tires and Kenda tubes. Whew, I think that's everything.
    Frames are $650 w/ paint (add $100 for powdercoat)
    Custom build kits are available w/ generous discounts on complete bikes and we can ship pretty much anywhere.

    Shipping to PA should be about $50 for a complete, I'm guessing about half that for frame only. Frames are 5.1 lbs and completes are 25 to 29 lbs depending on build. We can take credit/debit cards over the phone for payment.

    I don't know squat about anodizing but we've gotten some aluminum stuff done and have been talking about trying to find an alternative coating for the bikes . Until I checked the website 2 minutes ago I thought my S&M L.T.F. was anno'd but it's just a really sick, thin powder coat. Powder adds a bit of weight to the bike and paint is not quite as durable as we'd like to see. Any thoughts?

    Sublimation is about the only other thing going for a chromo/steel frame. Only materials that can be "anno'd" are Ti and alum. The weight you are adding from powder or wetshot is incredibly small compared to what parts you may be putting on. Literally maybe loosing half a pound, tops. Thats running wetpaints with primer/multiple basecoats, and a nice thick clear.
