Zach's All-City Nature Boy

After moving to San Diego from Sacramento, my rides got longer and longer. It got to the point where my brakeless Kilo TT just wasn't cutting it comfort-wise. Enter the Nature Boy; optimized for longer rides with more relaxed geometry, cushy tires, compact drops, a spinny ratio, and +10 cool points (because who doesn't like sparkly purple). It's name is Alrik. That means "all ruler" in Swedish because this bike rules. Also because Ric Flair. Woo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dltGK2G378A

Love the look with the Barlow Pass tires. Been thinking about those or the new Bon Jons for pavement riding to save the Nanos for gravel racing.

DUDE I've totally seen your ride at state. I have a nature boy too and I wanted to leave you a note to give you props on your ride, but I'm always in a rush when I see it. Very nice!

Thanks a lot! It's always a present surprise finding people that ride at SDSU. If you're ever down to ride, feel free to PM me to exchange contact info.

Also, loving your Nature Boy. Mine didn't come with a beard either :/

Thanks! I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying this bike. I did my first century on it in comfort and in style. I can't say enough good things about it.

Omnium clearance is a bit tight, but they work.
