Portland’s River City Bicycles bike shop builds lots and lots of incredible custom bikes because they love bikes. They also love basketball. Shop owner and founder Dave Guettler is a Trailblazers season ticket holder and has seen many Blazers come through the store as customers.
That’s why Dave wanted a bicycle in the store for the next Trailblazer, or any super tall customer, so he had one built. The result is a titanium road bike built to commemorate the 1977 NBA Championship won by the Portland Trailblazers. (Go Bill Walton — and check out the Dr. J dunks!)
Seven Cycles perfectly executed a clean, stylish frame build and the River City Bicycles service department spec’d it with top-tier components from Shimano, ENVE, and Portland’s own Chris King Precision Components.
For the finishing touch they turned to Walnut Bespoke Leather Designs from Nehalem, Oregon, who created basketball leather bar tape, a tool roll strap, and pant cuff bands. Complete bike weight for this super-sized roadster is 22.7 pounds. Price is $7400. Press play to learn more.
