The Cub House Bike Show and Swap: Plante Cycles All Road

Plante Cycles is a small framebuilding operation in Rancho Cucamonga. Stephen Plante builds each frame in his home garage, at the base of the San Gabriel mountains, where he tests out the designs for each model. At the Cub House’s Bike Show and Swap this year, Stephen brought two bikes, one of which I’ve been meaning to shoot photos of.

This all-road is painted in a Coors Banquet Can yellow and features a homemade waxed canvas frame bag. The build is simple, the colors are subtle, and yet this bike is a real eye-catcher. I hope to one day visit Stephen at his home shop and do a story on his work, but for now, check out this bike and the Iron Maiden bike Kyle shot a few years back to hold you over!

    That bicycle right there is pretty close to perfect in my eyes. I’d swap in bar end shifters and call it a day.

  3. Chris says:

    Fantastic frame, I love that it’s built with modest but functioning parts. I’m trying to find details on that fork? It’s hard to find a 1 1/8 steerer disk fork. I know it’s Whiskey but can’t find it on thier site.

    I’d call it ‘tan can’ yellow, myself. Looks great either way!

    amazing bike!
    where do you get this bar tape?

  8. Sattelfest says:

    is this a dent on the chain stay?

    • Chris says:

      Most likely dimpled for the road crank to clear the chain stay.

      • Stephen Plante says:

        it is very thin. I suggest to wrap it over some standard cork tape. But they have so many rad options!!

  9. kasual says:

    Just a great bike with a nice build. That bag is great — the wax looks good with the yellow and the attachment is super clean.
