Nashbar Nekkid Single Speed

The fourth bike I've had the pleasure of either rebuilding and upgrading, restoring or, in her case, building from the ground up. Though she is a mix of new and in-good-condition used parts, she was designed to look and be how she is. I dig unique frames, geometries, color-combinations, and lesser-known builders, however some of that requires some $$$, and this build, while an a la carte custom, was to be more of a looks good/works well/good deal sort of thing. I had a composition in mind, and so I about seeing how that could be done given my set parameters. It was a lot of fun and she rides beautifully. Smooth, crisp, responsive, light, and fast. UPDATE: Amelia is now in the hands of a new loving owner. :)
