We are really excited to be selling new Steelhead road bikes from Steve Potts Bicycles. We’ve sold a number of custom titanium bikes from Steve over the years, and most of you know our devotion to old Potts and Cunningham bikes and components here in the shop. The Steelhead bikes are a new foray into steel bikes from Steve and his son Daniel- stock sized, compact road framesets at a more affordable price point than a custom titanium frame. The bike has a TIG welded frameset with a unicrown fork, a beautiful wet paint job by Rick Stefani at D&D Customs in San Lorenzo, and that classic brass Steve Potts headbadge.
We built the bike up with components that showcase the styling and durability of a classic steel road bike. From 11 speed Shimano Ultegra group, Sim Works cockpit, and Shimano Pro handlebar tape to handbuilt wheels with H Plus Son Archetype rims, its top to bottom the stuff that we love and run on our own bikes. This frame has a 56.5″ effective top tube and will fit someone in the 5’9″ to 5’11” range. The frame and fork retail for $1985, and of course the bike is available complete as you see it here as well. If you are interested in this bike, just the frameset, or a different size, either call the shop or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
