His and Hers Jerome Cycles Townies

Being able to ride with your partner can be one of the most cherished experiences in any relationship. Now, whether or not it’s on the road, or a trail, or even just around town is contingent upon that couple’s own experiences on the bike, naturally. When this couple in particular decided they wanted new townie bikes, they contacted Southern California frame builder Jerome Cycles, who gladly took on the project. These bikes are traditional porteurs, with a large, flat rack platform and a geometry designed to accommodate a decent load like a bag of groceries. This functionality is only increased with Son hubs and Edelux II lamps, custom stems, PAUL Brakes, White Industries cranks and pedals with T11 hubs, laced to Velocity Synergy rims.
The most striking thing about this project are the colors. A dark, midnight blue for him and a burnt mustard for her, these two colors, matched with the Jerome Cycles headbadges really make these frames pop with character. I can’t wait to see how these bikes patina over time!
