Jordan Hufnagel’s 650b Dirt Porteur

I’ve already featured this Beautiful Bicycle once, but it was fully decked out in “city mode” during my Shop Visit to Hufnagel Cycles.

When Giro began making their selections for who would get to preview and review their New Road line, I was surprised to see Hufnagel‘s name on the list. He’s a huge advocate of environmentally responsible construction and sustainability. Sure enough though, the merino in the New Road line is from New Zealand, not China and it’s made in San Francisco… Sounds like a perfect match.

But what would Jordan ride? His city bike of course. Stripped of the porteur accoutrement, it became a lively gravel machine. Even the 420mm chainstays with 650b wheels didn’t hold Mr. Hufnagel back from getting rad on this bike. Here I was, thinking a cross bike was the ideal travel bike and yet, this thing looked pretty freaking rad.

    Without the porteur rack isn’t that thing basically a cross bike with flat bars and fatter tires?

    why not a portrait of the owner for each bike featured in beautiful bikes. more personal and it gives character i think.  anyway cool bike!

    For a bike with as much class as that (especially the brake levers), the saddle seems oddly out of place. Would look better with a Brooks or Ideale imo (or at least something old and worn).

    What tires are those?

  11. TB says:

    perfect saddle. no leather and a nice contemporary touch so as to steer clear of going the ye olde route.. Just classy, I like!

    Love the addition of the cork grips. Are those shellacked?

    That bike is forehead slapping good.  I didn’t think it could’ve gotten any better from the initial photos, but the patina really puts it over the edge.
