“I do downhill biking and I wanted something high-end so I put aside some money and bought a frame. And then I bought part, by part, by part, by part. Money was tight for me so I went online and bought used parts. Except for the brakes. I did not buy them used. I rely on them a lot.”
Photographer’s notes: There are loads of cyclists who buy their bikes piece by pieces, customising it to their image of the perfect bike. Frames are a great starting point – and then it is a little but if a beautiful Frankenstein creation as the perfect bike comes together.
