Of all the things that are great about working in the bike industry, the best thing by far is the people. And some of the finest you'll ever meet is the crew over at District Bicycles in Stillwater, OK.
They're great friends of ours, and a great friend of their's is Brendan. Brendan is native of Australia and has a reputation for being a bit of a wild card. He was looking to upgrade from his mass produced gravel rig and get into something custom, and so the folx at District came knocking.
Brendan's dream bike is a 650b gravel racer with a very tall stack and a slight increase in height from saddle to bar. He wanted a three pack mounts on the DT and for it to be the cleanest possible with zero cable routing for derailleurs and internal routing for the rear brake.
He picked the Cerakote colors in homage to his homeland, and selected a the gold bronze Jen Green headbadge.
This was a super fun product, we love solving fit issues for our customers, and the build and parts selection is superb. As are the photos courtesy of Tyler Siems.
