This is the story of a butterfly who wanted to be different, thus it chose the path less taken.
When you think of a carbon fiber road specific frame like the Fuji United, you would immediately set it up like a true racer that it was. Full Shimano, drop bars and make it super light for those road races that it might be subjected to… but my posse from the valley had other things in mind.
My kumpare from the river acquired a full carbon frame and fork by Fuji. This is the United Toyota team issue by Fuji bikes. He built it right, only differently…
Odd Bike In
This is a road racer with an odd cockpit. No drop bars and STI levers, but instead, butterfly handlebars, SLX shifters, Litepro brake levers were used to control the drivetrain and make the bike stop.
XT rear derailleur matched with climbing cogs complete this touring carbon bike. It is also equipped with a saddle bag and frame bag.
The butterfly handle bar gives the rider a lot of options to hold on, making the bike super comfortable to ride.
With a drivetrain like this, this touring bike can take on anything. I tried riding it and it feels like an EVO with a tweaked engine. It rides so fine and when you shift your position, it even goes faster.
This bike really deserves a blog, so here it is!
