Philly Bike Expo: Chapman Cycles

Brian from Chapman Cycles brought two bikes to the Philly Bike Expo this year with 99% matching parts and paint save for a saddle, this is the smaller of the two. A mixte with a monumental amount of flair, all the way down to the Campagnolo shifter turned chain-keeper and the double Rene Herse crank turned single with a bash.  The build is a mix of Campagnolo Veloce setup 1×10 with a wide range SRAM cassette, SON dynamo hub that powers both a front lamp and a tail-light the tail wiring run internally to the saddle, a handmade rack designed around the bike. Paul Touring Cantis provide the stopping power. 

Chapman cycles are built to order, with construction, paint and assembly all taking place in house, allowing for the perfect bicycle for the client, in this case the bi-laminate construction allowed Brian to pick the locks of lug jail just in time for Philly Bike Expo this year.
