Fast Boy Cycles: Gunnar’s 20″ Mountain Bike

Gunnars Fastboy 20 inch mountain bike (1)

Remember that post about Ezra of Fast Boy Cycles hanging out with and building a bike for his 8 year-old nephew? Well, here’s what came of it. This is what you’d call the ultimate, bomb-proof bike for a kid…and far from a “kid’s bike”. The mechanical disc brakes and 1×9 drivetrain  keep things simple while the raw finish has this bike begging to be thrashes. I remember my first ‘real’ mountain bike; a 24″ Gary Fisher Joshua, of which I ended up snapping the rear triangle and getting an entirely new replacement bike from Gary! No matter how many bikes I’ve owned, I’ll always remember my childhood rides. Gunnar, you’re one lucky kid!
