Ti Tuesday: Robert’s single speed Raijin

This weeks #TiTuesday comes to us all the way from Robert Vitek in Maryland and proclaims loudly that Singlespeeds are Dead. On first glance, his multi coloured Raijin‘s appearance hints at its “I don’t give a shit” single speed roots, but hidden underneath the stickers and technicolor parts choices lies a pretty snazzy and functional build. There’s a smattering of high quality parts from Thomson, Chris King, Nox wheels, E-Thirteen and even a custom Enzo Ferrari fender!

More Chris King bling up front, this time holding the DT Swiss XMN 120mm fork firmly in place. Both front and rear wheels are Nox Skyline carbon hoops laced to Chris King hubs with Sapim Super spokes. Oh and theres that “custom” Enzo Ferrari fender.
