The first Nua in Miami is very special, and its owner, Kouroche, has become a good friend since visiting us in Barcelona a few months ago. He had been in love with our bikes for a good while when he finally decided to order a Nua Doppio, customised to his taste. This is the result:
Kouroche decided he wanted the crankset spider orange, so of course we painted it orange for him.
And we complimented it with a few other orange touches. Such as this superb quality Chris King i7 headset in “mango”:
Orange rear sprocket spacers:
And even orange gear cable casing:
This bicycle is the first which we’ve constructed with the rear light and headlight integrated into the seatpost and handlebar respectively.
The lights are nice and bright, and very discrete when not in use. They’re powered by a lithium-ion battery with its own USB charger.
Another first for us on this bike is the side stand.
A Brooks saddle in black leather with titanium rails will provide elegant good looks and comfort for years to come.
In a nutshell, a simple yet superb quality machine, sporty yet comfortable, elegant but with a touch of fun, exactly as our friend Kouroche had requested. Upon receiving the bike, he had these kind words to say:
“Hi Roberto, I just got the bike and it is even better than I had imagined it. It is very light which is impressive….
it is a beauty and piece of art. I am very happy with it”
Thankyou Kouroche for your friendship and your generous nature. And also for sending us this foto of your new Nua with Miami Beach in the background:
