Jesse’s Hufnagel Fire Road Racer

Ok, brace yourselves here. This bike is absolutely stunning. It’s no secret that Jordan Hufnagel made some Beautiful Bicycles in his days as a frame builder and I feel like in the last few months of his torch time, the bikes he built were so full of class and character. Ty’s cross, his own porteur and Jesse’s “Fire Road Racer”.

When you are from LA, you’re very familiar with the various fire roads and singletrack off-shoots. After spending time on his road bike, carefully descending down these rutted and rocky descents, Jesse decided it was time for a more fitting vehicle… See more in Gallery!

    First comment I’ve ever made on this site.

    Army green + Brooks brown + Skin-wall tires + subtle touches of copper in the head-badge and W.A. pendent.
    Absolutely stunning.

        And they crack

        • John Watson

          I’ve never had one crack.

          • Joshua Diep-Anderson

            I have.

      • Aaron Garcia

        Thomson X2s are some of the stiffest stems I’ve ever ridden. The difference is outstanding when you put one on a bike.

  • Cliff Horton

    Been looking at this bike all May on my CycleEXIF calendar … absolutely stunning. Love the cloth bar tape cable rub protection, great idea!

    • Brian Kleiber

      I was gonna say the same…certainly brightens up my desk area.
