alex(s)(is a) CAD
Alex is an architect, a good one, with ideas, ethics and charisma. He wanted a bike to commute on that behaves like his Moulton APB did and has a stark architectural aesthetic. He wanted to have gears, very little maintenance, and he was on a budget. Alex approached me looking for “carry my models and portfolio to work on the front, and be able to carry girls home on the back at the same time”
So I built the CAD because Alex is no bounder but he is certainly a cad! Its nimble and fun, and super solid, made from plain gauge t45 tubes with a Shimano Alfine hub gear and TRP disc brakes with external cable routeing for ultra low maintenance, and super reliability with relatively low cost.
