Special Custom Cruiser

To commemorate our company's new office in Millennia Tower, I commissioned a custom cruiser from Boon Siong and Derrick at Customaxxx.

This is a twin-plated frame precision crafted from 6061-T6 aluminium and powder coated in midnight black.

One sits low, long and wide on this baby and she rolls on the widest wheels in the bicycle industry, all 24” by 100 mm wide.

Transmission is via a Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub with retro-style hand shifter mounted on the top tube.

I wanted a belt drive system but the chain stay length was too long at 890 mm. So the resourceful guys specially imported a Schlumpf Belt Drive System with Gates belt and customised it to the frame.

They completed the bike with a special art design that reflected NetApp's "visual language" along the top tube.

How cool is that!
