Jackie the man at Box Dog Bike just done with this beauty from ground up for his wife. I mean from custom tubing, bike building all that jazz. It has all the brazed on, holes, hangs, hinge you hella name it. Custom rack too dahum.
Ok I posted some pics here but go over to see more pic in the album cos the dudeman really did a good job with the custom frame. So if you need to get a nice one for ya love one, head over to Box Dog Bike They has all the nut and bolts to finish this up beautifully. They really do.
Well, this build has been in my head recently. What would be better than a nice 650B all around porteur bikes. Carefully designed by BDB guys where most modern parts will easily fit. AND made in USA with price that not gonna break your bank. I don’t remember how long I had seen the Pelican, 4 years? Somewhere around that I think. I remember seeing Gabe fiddling around with the blue bike at the shop, then Dan got one, and Andy got one, and Gabe Peterson got one before he moved to LA.
I think since I am heading to Thailand or a while, I am going take the Pelican with me. A nice cushy 650B would do me good on the 3rd World Country street, some Pass & Stow rack, or Velo-Orange rack (or Nitto??) to carry my sticky rice, and Honjo fender with rear light with Nitto bottle cages just to flossin it up.
WAH… ok Ian, i saw the Pelican Spec Sheet and I think 52 is perfect for me. I have Durace 7400 grouppo ( Front/Rear derailers, 172.5 Crank set, STI shifters, Italian BB, pedal set) , Nitto 27.2 seat post, Nitto stem and Unicanitor seat, I have a King headset saved in Berkeley.
So I think what I need to get are,
1) Pelican frame-set 52cm.
2) Cantilever brake set
3) 650B wheelset with front dyno
4) Nitto drop bar like one in the picture
5) Set of Honjo fenders with attached rear light.
6) Pass & Stow rack, or Velo-Orange rack.
Pedal Speed magazine issue number 4, is out, and to name a few from San Francisco, Box Dog bikes, Mojo Cafe and American Cyclery.
