Since this bike grabs some serious attention on the street, we decided to let you know a little bit about it and its owner…
GNARLUBE would like to introduce you to Jay #GNAR. On a scale of 1-10 on his bike/life, Jay is an 8. He is the GNARLUBE headquarters leading cyclist on rides 2 hours or less and likes to chase STRAVA trophies when he is not strapped to his desk. In this photo he is straddling his leading lady, whom has not yet been named. She is a Land Shark carbon bicycle hand built by world famous John Slawta. The out of control candy colored abstract paint job was done by John’s daughter Sara Slawta. Like her father she too is an incredible artist whom spends tons of her time filling sketch books with similar art and likable famous quotes!
The bike that was built by Velo Hangar’s bike mechanic extraordinaire Gordon Yeager shifts flawlessly with its Shimano Ultagra di2, and steers with precision with its ENVY bars and stem. The finishing touch is the purple fi’zi:k seat that Jay trusts his balls and butt too.
Jay is wearing a sweet mix matched GNARLUBE Chain Drop kit from our Spring 2012 line and believes is the #powerofthepinksocks.
