Vince‘s 2019 Rove St is hard not to miss, those epic fenders and that amazing factory green paint job just lept off our Instagram feed. The bike was built by Greg at District Cycle Works in Washington, D.C. “I built this bike to be my do it most bike; from commuting, gravel grinding, overnighters and all that. I’m super stoked for getting it out in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the Gravista event next June. The gearing should definitely help with all the damn hills.”
With a whole bunch of hills on Vince’s horizon, he’s opted for FSA’s Energy crankset in a 46/30 chainring combo.
Shifting duties are performed by a Shimano XT M8000 rear derailleur, you’ll notice there is no Wolf Tooth adapter for the MTB specific rear derailleur, instead…
…He’s sporting these beautiful Gevenalle GX shifter (and brake levers). The Gevenalle GX Shifters are compatible with Shimano 10 or 11 Speed Dyna-Sys Mountain Bike derailleurs.
The front Shutter Precision PD-8X Dyno hub is laced to a Velocity Blunt rim and powers the Busch & Müller IQ-XS light.
The cockpit is just a whole bunch of Sim Works goodness. From the hand-etched Rhonda stem to the flared Wild Honey handlebar, this build is as unique as they come.
The Sim Works by Honjo Brass Turtle fenders are pure works of art, and we just can’t get enough of them.
More Sim Works, this time the classic Beatnik seatpost.
The rear rack Tubus Fly Evo while the front rack is a Surly, the whole thing is wrapped up and rolling on a set of WTB Byways.
