Lee’s Gorgeous Fuji Touring Townie Dad-Bike

October 28th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized


Lee came to us with a nice old 27″ roadster with some great, comfortable bars and shifters, but a flogged out drive-train and a bent down-tube. The brief was to recapture the spirit of the old bike, and give Lee a solid, comfy commuter that was also a  ‘Dad-bike’ for daycare drop-offs and playgroup runs.

The 2011 Fuji Touring worked out great. We transferred the whole bar, stem and controls, including the gorgeous old Dia Compe Brake-levers and classic Suntour Power-Ratchet shifters straight across from the old bike, and added a Brooks Flyer, some VO Aluminium guards and Bobike Mini and built one of my most favourite of our recent new bikes.
