Sklar Bikes are now being distributed by SimWorks in Japan. Shige works for Simworks and while running their Portland office for a few months was able to make it up to Bozeman and spend some time riding and hanging out. Months before though, Shige had ordered this custom monstercross bike frame set. Something that could run 700x40 (as pictured) or a 27.5 x 2.1" tire, as he plans to set it up after this cross season.
The frame features all american made double butted tubing from Vari-Wall and an Enve Composites fork. Lots of nice bits from Chris King and White Industries as well. This bike turned out great, and thanks to Shige for the beautiful photos!
