Spank My Brass
If you want the whole shebang, this is it. The Spank My Brass is that expensive bike I mentioned derisively in the Birthday Suit description. But, alas, it is a beautiful, bombproof, hand filed, fillet brazed bike with custom colors and sweet components. Price is $7,300 (including standard shipping to the Lower 48).
The Spank My Brass is designed with bikepacking in mind. It comes with over-sized bottle cage and mounts under the down tube and a removable webbing strap for easy mounting of a front roll bag. It also comes equipped with integrated mounts for a bolt-on frame bag or top tube bag.
A bike is only as good as its components, and I didn’t skimp there either. Components include a Rockshox Pike RCT3 fork, Rockshox Reverb dropper, DT Swiss 350 hubs, Shimano XT brakes, and SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain. See the full component list below.
The Spank My Brass comes in Medium, Large, and Custom size options. Medium and Large take two to three months to ship because of finishing and powder coating time. Custom size shipping date depends on backlog.
Spank My Brass will be available for order in October of 2019.
