Budnitz bikes

Budnitz Bicycles No.3 Black Steel

Adding to the ranks of boutique bicycle builders, Paul Budnitz builds these elegant city bikes from titanium and CoMo steel. Components are from Chris King, Thomson, Paul Components, Phil Wood, and other high end makers. No suspension: just a cantilever frame design, wide tires,  and the forgiving nature of steel and TI.

There’s also no chain. Budnitz uses a Gates carbon belt drive with with either a single-speed or 11-speed Shimano Alfine automatic hub.

These are damn pretty bikes. When I’m rich and famous, I’ll get one and let you know how it rides.
