J-D's Rachel!

Early on in the arrival of Rachel framesets a few years back, J-D had a stroke of genius with this practical but creative Rachel build. The Moustache handlebars, bar-end shifter, and dynamo lighting keep him comfy rolling late through the night on ice cream runs. A fun anecdote - J-D's leather bartape has been on the road for about ten years by now, and has been transferred between many a bike. A very special detail here is the front rack. The all-rounder handy person of the crew, J-D conceived and welded it in his basement!

We'll be getting another batch of Rachel frames in a few weeks! Reach out by email if you'd like to discuss a build, and pre-order your frame here to reserve inventory.
