We’re so stoked to welcome Brian to the Deluxe crew. Brian is from Colorado and moved to Brooklyn in 2009. He’s what you would call a football fanatic, rooting for his home team, the Denver Broncos, although the Giants are warming up to him a little he admits. Brian has two sweet-as-can-be dogs that are just a treat whenever he brings them to the shop! He loves all kinds of cycling, but specifically road and mountain.
Brian is a Serotta certified fitter with experience in road, cross, track, tri, tt and mtb and even has experience in adaptive fit for people with injuries and disabilities. He used to be a professional team mechanic and over the years has earned multiple certifications in different facets of bicycle mechanics ranging from electronic groupsets to downhill suspension overhauls. He also has experience working at top 10 bike shops in the country as a fitter and mechanic.
Brian has this Spot track build that’s unlike most. Featuring Stans Alpha 340 rims, this bike has already dropped a lot of weight. Having a ti stem and seatpost guarantees a ride like no other! Brian decided to stay away from conventional track cranks and went with a set of Dura Ace road cranks!
Jesse just built up a new Kalavinka NJS frame for racing! Hatta swan headset and bottom bracket for smooth running, Nitto post and stem to keep it classy, and a San Marco Concor Light saddle to keep it familiar. Suzue Promax hubs laced 1x in front and 2x in rear to shiny A23s make it a beaut, but what sets this NJS apart from others is that it’s set up tubeless! Can’t forget the blue toshi straps on MKS Sylvain Lite pedals, too!
Similar to the Stratos we put up recently this Vivalo also has Dura Ace 10-Pitch and set of tied and soldered wheels! Classic is only first taste this bike offers. Topping things off with Nitto components and a Kshimax Fivegold saddle, this bike is literally straight off the track.
Straight off the track from Japan, everything is NJS with Dura Ace 10 Pitch. Nitto cockpit with a brilliantly white fivegold saddle keep this bike clean. Ready to roll and win some match sprints with those stiff tied and soldered wheels!
Kenji got another track bike.. but this one is a No22 ti bike! Phil cranks, hubs, and bb make for an unforgettably smooth ride. Not to mention the Enve carbon clinchers for ease of use on the street. Dialed in with Kenjis SLR saddle he’s ready to put in some miles!
