Curtis Bikes’ unconventional cruiser

14 01 2016

I shared an early photo of this Curtis cruiser frame last week on the Cruiser Revolution Facebook page.

Curtis Bikes had taken an unconventional approach to this custom cruiser frame so my interest was definitely piqued.

Now, Curtis Bikes has released new pictures…and wow, this is a really cool looking frame.

*Spacing typically seen on MTBs

Nice job by Curtis Bikes!
