It’s based off of our Simple Bike aka Gentleman’s Scorcher. So much customization going on here. We tried to keep the components to a bare minimum utilizing the simplicity of the Gates Carbon Belt Drive system. Headed overseas for some city rolling. Girindra asked for us to include his kids into the build. The silver medallions represent each child – sun, stars, and sky.

]]> News Addition: Nicole's Steel Road Adventure http://timetogetnaked.com/gallery/nicoles-steel-road-adventure/2014/06/21 http://timetogetnaked.com/gallery/nicoles-steel-road-adventure/2014/06/21 Sat, 21 Jun 2014 04:51:44 +0000 Road Adventure for us means a classic road bike with room for a little bit more. Perfect for an epic road ride or randonneur – maybe even a race or two. Made for long reach road brakes so there is room for slightly bigger tires, fenders and a rear rack.

Wanted to see what all this Fat-bike nonsense was about.  Here’s the Naked Fat-Bike prototype. Already had some massive grins riding this phat bastard. Is it better than a “skinny” tire mtb? Wrong question. Apples and oranges. Is it really fun? Oh yes. Yes it is………

]]> News Addition: A Little "naked" Lovin' for Dean of BCBR http://timetogetnaked.com/gallery/a-little-naked-lovin-for-dean-of-bcbr/2014/05/16 http://timetogetnaked.com/gallery/a-little-naked-lovin-for-dean-of-bcbr/2014/05/16 Fri, 16 May 2014 16:33:20 +0000 It is with HUGE pleasure that we were asked to work on a project with the beautiful, and far from dis-functional, family that is the BC Bike Race Crew. Le Grande Fromage, Dean Payne is properly loved and respected by his crew.Andreas Hestler (Dre) asked if naked bicycles might like to work on a special BCBR/Deaner machine. I jumped at the chance. Racing in the BCBR last year was one of the best experiences I have ever had on a MTB, and working with the crew felt and still feels just like home. Enjoy your new frame Dean! Thank-you from all of us for all you do.

This is one area where custom bike builders can really excel. And Ben being 6′ 8″ tall, has been riding bikes that are waaaay to small for him. And now, here’s one that fits.  With Zinn 210mm crankset, extra long Woundup fork (390mm steerer), Velocity wheelset, Hydraulic Disc brakes and custom stainless low rider rear rack.
