Steven came to us with a plan to buy a new bike for his wife for her birthday. After a good conversation we all realized that said wife needed to be part of this. No ordinary off the shelf bike would do. After going over some pictures of some other bikes we’d built and looking at some other things we decided on the New Albion Starling frame, 3 speed hub, and polished silver components. Everything else was up to us. Here’s what we ended up with for just about $1000.
