Taylor Sizemore‘s mission statement is to create bikes that are simple, functional and unadorned, yet beautiful in their rugged purity. He built this big-wheeled Mega Cruiser for his father as a gift and thank-you present for helping Taylor pursue his frame-building dream.
As it turns out, Taylor’s dad, David, has as deep a love for motorcycles as Taylor does for bicycles, so Taylor reflected this in the relaxed geometry. The Mega Cruiser also embodies the Sizemore aesthetic and Taylor’s appreciation for clean lines. A Shimano Alfine internal geared hub conceals the transmission, driven by the indomitable White Industries drivetrain and it’s rolling on a pair of Schwalbe Big Apples. It sounds like there’s only one thing missing: a Bicycle playing card stuck in the spokes to replicate the roar of a motorcycle’s engine.
