Sutty’s custom Invictus Bikes cruiser

29 03 2016

UK rider, Roy “Sutty” Sutton spotted our recent post on Curtis Bikes’ unconventional cruiser and decided to drop us a line about another custom frame builder in the UK that will “build anything you want”…Invictus Bikes.

Invictus just finished his custom 24″ dirt/park/race cruiser (it’s just going to paint) and he sent along some early photos to share the stoke.

It features the following specs:
  • 69 degree head tube
  • 72 degree seat tube
  • 23″ top tube
  • 14″ rear stay
  • 11.2″ bottom bracket height
  • 135mm dropouts to run a disc brake

Sutty’s going to provide an update when it’s painted and ready to go. The frame comes in at a tidy 4 pounds (if that sort of thing matters to you).

Sutty says his M.O. these days is “pump tracks/dirt/park and the occasional race”…so maybe some action shots too?

Pretty cool. Reminds me a bit of the new cruiser by Common Ground in that its geo is somewhat MTB inspired. Not sure why race bikes need a 74 HTA myself, so this setup makes sense to me.

I thought that too.

Sutty said he opted for the 69 HA since most tracks in the UK are “steep and deep” these days. That it handles nice at the trails is a bonus.
