“I’ve had Malouf’s dark red Beverage seat for ages and knew I wanted to build a bike based on it. Luckily G man was down to do a run of dark red Safari pedals and Donnasqueak tires to match. Everything feels amazing! Never really been into colored tires, but I think the dark red with black sidewalls is super crispy. I’m stoked on how quiet she looks, things can get sketchy when you try to lurk with a noisy ride. “
