Avery County Cycles: 1×11 Disc Cross Bike Sep 1, 2014

Photos by Dave Lehl

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.

    Beautiful Bike!

    bravo, that bike is beautiful. Not a fan of the clement tires though, no relation to the OG clements; bought out name. Deceiving marketing.

    • Carl Anderson

      You ever ride those particular Clements? They are the jam for singletrack shredding!

  • BA Beck

    This guy does themes well. Paint job is stellar. Lots of nice little details. I like the compass on the top tube.

    I’m the very lucky guy who owns this bike – Josh does amazing work! Couldn’t be happier with the paint job by Jordan Low and the wheels by Magnetic Wheel Co. Keep doing what your doing John and everyone who keeps the Radavist fresh – your blog has become a daily addiction for me.
