At Big Ring Cycles, we're all about custom bikes. We love the process, from the initial consultation, to the build, and finally the point in which we deliver an person's dream bike. Our latest fully custom build is for one of our favorite customers, and one of the most pleasant individuals to be around out there, Miss Prilla.
Miss Prilla came to us in the fall of 2014 in need of a new bike after hers had been damaged beyond repair following a bicycle-car collision. As devastated as she was that her Parlee Z5SL had met its unfortunate end, she now had the opportunity to build her completely custom dream bike. After deciding on a brand new Parlee Altum frameset, Prilla chose to go with a paint scheme that one can only describe as...classic. In addition, she insisted on Campagnolo Super Record mechanical components, the epitome of Italian cycling heritage. Prilla not only wanted a high-performance bicycle, she also wanted an extremely light bicycle, which is why she chose to use DT Swiss DICUT 32 tubular wheels, weighing in at a feathery 1090g for the set. These were mounted with our favorite high-performance road tires, Vittoria Corsa CX.
Miss Prilla's bike is truly one of a kind, and we couldn't have been happier to deliver her dream bike. Enjoy the pictures below!
