Norther Cycles 650b #1
Our most famous bike. Featured on, and pictures stolen from, the Radavist bike blog.
We built this bike as a full custom Norther #1 for the 2015 Oregon Handmade Bike and Beer Fest. And, now you can have it for an outragous price! If you wanted us to clone this bike for you it would cost a little over $3500! get it now why it's on sale and let us help you build it up. It's got to go so we can make room for more new inventory.
It was built up in bare metal with a full Dura Ace kit. It's since been stripped and sent off for a Powder Coat at Class Act Powder-coating. With die cut gold Norther decal and our very first pewter head-badge.
The frame is 55cm measured from the center of the bb to the top of the top tube. It is 56cm if you measure up to the top of the top tube. The top tube is 54cm ctc.
You can buy this as a frameset as is, or have us build it up for you as a complete bike with whatever parts you so choose!
The bike is available to look at on our shop floor! Come check it out.
Right now it is set up with a flat "Portland Sky" blue/grey powder coat. Yes it has sparkles even though it's flat. The stainless drop out faces have also been brushed to keep up with the flat look.
It's equipped with Honjo fenders, and Saavedra headset ultra light needle bearing headset, and Compass CP1 front rack.
The bike is designed to use a Son Connector-less Dynamo front Hub, and has the special M.A.P dropouts and options for all internal wire routing.
