Ocean Air Cycles

Rob from Ocean Air Cycles stopped by today to pick up a few Soma tires and some new Sanyo dynamo lights.

He had a couple of his bikes in the van and was nice enough to pull them out so we could take a closer look.

White Industries cranks and brazed on Paul centerpull brakes look super clean.

 On closer inspection, you'll find these bikes are chocked full of clever little hacks.

The Rivendell Marks rack by Nitto bolts directly to the fork crown braze ons.

He's not a giant, it's just a little bike. This one is the model he built for his wife.

Ocean Air is big on 650b. These bikes are both running Soma 650b tires.

This one has a customized Soma Porteur rack with a Wald basket attached to the front. The hammered Honjo fenders look sweet with the Terra Cotta Soma B-lines.

Custom tabs connect the rack to the fork crown. 

Crane Karen bell mounted on top of the down tube housing stop. Never seen it done like that before.

Customized mount for the Crane hand painted bell mounted to a headset spacer.

Can't wait to see what's next from Ocean Air. You can find more info at the website.
