Rob called us last week after seeing a Budnitz Scorcher appear in his newsfeed.
“I’ll take it. In black.”
As a former racer, speed was an absolute must. He loved his Vanilla road bike, but needed versatility for the mixed terrain of his 10-mile commute.
Weekends at the cabin meant exploring miles of trails, often arriving home well past sundown.
His custom Scorcher just left our studio, en route to Colorado.
A steel cantilever frame and inverted alloy riser bar. Grease-free Gates Carbon Drive and Racing Ralph tires. Knog Blinder lights and our favorite Brooks honey leather.
Raw speed. Refined.
