Peter’s Minty All Road
Peter’s been a fan of Landyachtz for years. He knew about the brand from our 20 year history of building skateboards. He’s now an avid cyclist and when he learned that we were hand building bikes in our East Vancouver shop he knew he had to have one. The Catch; he asked if we could build his dream bike in only four weeks … Sure, why not!
Peter knew he wanted a bike that was fast and more road oriented but he also wanted it to be capable enough to take off road from time to time. He also really liked the idea of color matching his frame, fork and stem. This was something we’d never done before. It’s a nice touch and really makes the Shimano Dura Ace and Ultegra components stand out.
The frame is comprised of Columbus tubing and parts from Paragon Machine Works. It has our new carbon ADV fork, carbon DT Swiss wheel set and a full Zipp cockpit. We used a mix of Shimano Dura Ace and Ultegra parts to build up the perfect drive train for both road and light gravel riding.
Peter’s bike is a head turner and we’re stoked on a four week build. If you see Peter mobbing around Vancouver on his mint green machine, make sure to give him a head nod.
