Kris from Locked Cog finished building up his Eighthinch Scrambler as a winter bike, with an almost complete Eighthinch ensemble of parts to match. It adds up to a build that’s as burly as Kris needs it to be, and rugged enough to withstand a season’s worth of inclement weather riding.
Eighthinch is the fixed gear section of Wheel and Sprocket, a family owned bike shop that’s been faithfully serving the Milwaukee area since 1973. They manufacture most of the components you need to build a complete bike, and sponsor a team of dedicated riders, of which Kris is a member. In fact, pretty much everything on this bike is Eighthinch branded, except for the pegs, grips, Leader forks and bars, Cult seat and those Milwaukee Nickel bar ends.
It’s a little hard to comprehend the necessity for a dedicated winter bike, especially while down under in Australia we’re enjoying the heat, beach and a cold beer. So Kris’s bike is a little reminder to enjoy the weather while it lasts, because it too, moves in cycles.
