“Discoteca” is an updated randonee event bike. Inspired by the all day and all night rides, the bike is named for the non-stop party of group randos. The Discoteca has classic rando features, but wasn’t restrained by a sense of reproduction or nostalgia. Instead the rider wanted a bike designed for his riding style and the events he participates in.
This randonneuring bicycle is made from a builders select tube set in modern alloy and dimension. It features S&S couplers (PBP, here we come!) as well as internally routed and coupled light wiring. The bike is outfitted with Shimano Ultegra components, Avid disc brakes and a White Industries and Schmidt equipped wheel system. The custom racks were designed for the riders Arkel rear bag and Acorn bar bag and feature integrated light and accessory mounts. A custom Winter stem has a brushed bell and positions the USB port and switch for the front B&M lamp. The stunning blue on blue paint was applied by Keith Anderson.
