Custom Bike Build

There’s an enjoyment you get from something you build yourself that you won’t get from a fully packaged product. When a buddy of ours decided to build his own bike, we figured we’d document the process. Check out the video and peruse what he used below:

  • Wellgo Superlite Pedals
  • Vuelta Zerolite Pro Wheels
  • Vittoria Zaffiro Tires
  • Shimano Bottom Bracket
  • 1/8″ 165mm Crankset with 46-Tooth Chain Ring

Build Time: 2 hrs
