2014 Alero

2014 Alero 

This is the called the anomaly bike. Its the only modern bike in the collection. I have always wondered how a modern bike feels like with all the high-tech components like wide riser handle bar, long travel suspension, disc brakes, etc. So, I had to build one to find out. Turns out that the bike is actually quite fun! The first thing you noticed is the upright sitting position. 

Not wanting to spend a bomb and realizing that its not what I expect, mid-level components from the Deore series were used. 

9 speed gears are more than sufficient. The bike is light even with the suspension fork, so it is quite effortless to move it along.

The handle bars are 740cm wide and the stem is 50cm. Hydraulic disc brakes are used instead of mechanical ones.

See how wide the bike is!

Handle bar and stem were from a Specialized bike.

The saddle is made of carbon fibre.

 Bike size is 15.5".

See the upright riding position?

Rear hydraulic disc brakes.

Front suspension shock is from Rock Shox with 100mm of travel.
