Today is a very happy day for me and our shop! Thanks to the custom bike manufacturers at STS Bicycles of Rushville, Indiana and the expert bike-builder skills of HBS’s own Chris Bucher – my new touring bike is ready to roll for its first ride on Saturday, April 15! This rolling work of practical art is centered around a 56cm light weight steel frame and fork, 700c x 38 mm Panasonic GravelKing wheels and tires, a Shimano 2×11 Tiagra group set, a 46 mm set of Whiskey shallow drop handlebars wrapped in Brooks leather bar wrap, and a killer set of color matching full wheel fenders. I also installed my favorite “broken in” Brooks B-67 leather touring saddle. Got interest in a custom built bike made in Indiana? Come see us and test ride these amazing American made bicycles – we are your northern Indiana STS retailer. Chris Bucher will be happy to have a robust conversation with you about making an STS bike the “perfect” bike for you.
