This bright purple Tout Terrain Via Veneto was built for a customer in Alexandria, Virginia, who was looking for a reliable bike for weekday commutes into downtown DC that would also inspire her to take on more weekend adventures, and maybe even a few week-long tours.

With experience as a mountain biker, she understood the value of reliable drivetrain components, and recognized their extra importance as she sought to take on a new challenge with the world of bike touring.

This beautiful Independent Fabrication touring bike went to a customer in Toronto, Canada. The rider had a solid vision for his bike, and came to us with very specific requests for the frame, custom paint, and components. Rohloff's SPEEDHUB 500/14 internal gear hub was the starting point for the build. As a previous SPEEDHUB owner who'd completed an extended tour with the hub, the rider was familiar with Rohloff's unparalleled reliability and wide gear range.

Having a frame that perfectly fits your riding style and body type can make the difference between a bike that motivates you to get out and ride often and one that sits in the corner gathering dust. Changing a half a degree on a tube angle or a quarter inch of a tube length can completely alter how a bike rides and feels. (This might be too bold of a statement. Run this by Carmen and Tyler and see what they think.  I am more inclined to say something like "relatively small changes in ........ can make a noticeable difference in how a bike rides and feels".
