Josh Culbertson from Avery County Cycles recently completed a gorgeous 1×11 disc cross bike for a customer. Like a lot of Josh’s bikes, there’s a story behind this one. The client’s grandparents worked for and collected Viking Snowmobiles in northwestern Minnesota, so you’ll catch insignia from Viking on the bike, as well as a Viking-inspired paint job.

Made from True Temper with internal routing and painted by Jordan Low, this lightweight steel bike has a mean stance and will stop just fine in whatever conditions you throw at it. For wheels, King R45D to carbon hoops were spec’d and built by Magnetic Wheel Co.

I’m at the Rouge Roubaix with Argonaut Cycles

It’s wild out here. Ben from Argonaut has been developing a disc-version of his road frame, with a slightly different geometry suited for off-road / gravel riding. The Rouge Roubaix is the first testing ground for the bikes. More to come, including race coverage and a story about the design process that went into the disc bike.

Follow @Argonautcycles and myself on Instagram for more throughout the weekend.
