A Piolet Build for the Grand Cruz

By Igor

Here is our latest Piolet build. It'll be heading over to the Grand Cruz team for demo rides and general ogling. Since the Cruz is cruising into the great Southwest in a couple of weeks, the Piolet will be in its natural habitat.

They'll be making their way through Arizona, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and into Texas by way of Austin, Dallas, and Houston.

Rolling on Maxxis 29x2.4" tires
Raceface Crankset with 32T Narrow-wide chainring
SRAM Apex 10sp shifters + SRAM S500 Left Brake Lever
11-36T Shimano SLX Cassette + SRAM GX 10sp clutch'ed derailleur 
Rando Handlebar creates a nice cockpit
Clint did a cool, subtle harlequin wrap job on the handlebars...
....and chainstay!
Still lots of room for a front derailleur if you want to run a double or triple.

Beautiful job. Velo Orange needs to sell build kits for this bike.

I agree. Is there anywhere where you can get a complete velo-orange bike?

@Unknown- you could work through any of our great Velo Orange dealers to get one of our frames built up with VO components.
