We had a lot of fun with the Dave’s Bike Collection film series last year and even though there’s plenty more bikes in his collection we’re moving to a new series showcasing the best new bikes coming through River City Bicycles. Our Pro Build Gallery is one of the most popular pages on our site as we see such a wide range of exotic, unique, and custom bikes through the store. The River City Bicycles service department is the quiet, unheralded unit in our business and we’d like to bring a little more attention to the fantastic work they do. So, to tip things off..
This is the first in our Pro Build Collection film series and it’s an all-star. We build lots and lots of incredible custom bikes at River City Bicycles because, let’s face it, we love bicycles. You know what else we love – basketball! Dave Guettler, River City Bicycles founder and owner, is a fan, Trailblazer season ticket holder, and has seen many Blazers come through the store as customers. Dave wanted a bicycle in store for the next Trailblazer, or any customer that tall, and the result is a titanium road bike built to commemorate the 1977 NBA Championship won by the Portland Trailblazers.
Seven Cycles perfectly executed a clean, stylish frame build and our service department spec’d it with top-tier components from Shimano, Enve Composites, and Portland’s own Chris King Precision Components. For the finishing touch we turned to Walnut Bespoke Leather Designs from Nehalem, Oregon who created basketball leather bar tape, tool roll strap, and pant cuff bands. Let’s go Rip City!
