Greg's Neutrino is a Hoot!

by Igor

Greg wanted to have us build up a Neutrino Mini-Velo for commuting, travel, and a bit of fun on gravel roads. 

He opted for Tourist Bars to keep the position upright and comfortable. At 570cm in width, the Tourist is narrow by todays standards, but the sweep, rise, and grip length makes for a magnificent cockpit position. It's a personal favorite of ours.

Wheels are our Disc Hubs laced to Velocity Cliffhanger Rims in 32h drilling. And the rubber is Maxxis Grifter in 20"x2.3" (406 bsd). 

Drivetrain is Sram with a Rival 1 rear derailleur, Apex 1 crankset, 11-32 cassette, and Apex 11 shifter.

Braking is handled by TRP Spyres connected to our Grand Cru Brake Levers in Silver.

We also put on a Flat Pack Rack for general portage. 

All-in-all, this is a very fun bike. I'm actually thinking of rebuilding mine with a few cues from this one. 

As far as a status of Neutrino frames, we sold out of the S and L sizes basically overnight. I honestly thought they would have lasted longer, but they were basically in and out to places all around the world. We're getting more in the Summer, so keep your eyes peeled!

Sweet build! I love the color of that Neutrino.

I like that tourist bar and am tempted by it; I would love to compare it to the Porteur currently on my bike. Have you thought about contributing to WhatBars.com? It would be a huge help to a lot of people.
