This weekend brings about Unbound Gravel, in Emporia, Kansas and I managed to catch up with a few friends who are taking on the 200-mile route… on a tandem. It’s not just any tandem though, so let’s check it out in detail below.
The Long Haul with Humble Frameworks
Words and Photos by Kyle Kelley
A lot of people asked me why I was flying into Chicago for NAHBS this year when the show was another 5 hours away in Louisville, KY. Well… the answer was easy for me. I wanted to get the party started up north and keep it going all the way down south. There were friends to see, hot dogs and pizza to eat, bike shops to visit and dogs to be walked (my dog lives in Chicago). And last but not least I wanted to spend time driving down Interstate-65 through my home state of Indiana with Michael Catano from Humble Frameworks.
Dustin Klein of Cadence worked with Michael from Humble Frameworks to paint this beautiful cyclocross frame. Sticking to a monochromatic theme, Dustin’s hand work uses the magnetic fields-inspired artwork to highlight the Humble’s frame curvature.
The finished product was built with HED wheels, a mix of SRAM and Ritchey components. See more of this beauty below.
