Crust Bikes Romanceur

what is up, heads!? here's my crust bikes romanceur aka a riv with disc brakes aka that famous white guy on instagram: the bike. save for tires and possibly fenders, this bike is pretty much done. I intend to ride this thing mostly on the road hence the sketchy mickey moused champy group going on. the top pulley is a little too close to the 40t cog but I am down to explode that rear derailleur like a true pimp. honestly, the shifting is hella not dialed due to the right internals being pretty worn and you kind of have to babysit the shift before smashing on fools. I really don't care because this is an exercise in flexing on bike chumps with instagram accounts.
as you can see, the light switch/usb wiring harness is kind of an eyesore but the system as a whole is growing on me. there's lots of coverage and it has a hi-beam function! pretty neat. I haven't tried the usb function just yet but I'm sure it will prove useful when I need to charge my gameboy or whatever. I'm not sure if I want or need a front rack on the bike just yet but as far as portage goes, I've got a carradice nelson long-flap (the big-ass one) and a nitto r15 rear rack for maximum sweaters and magazines storage. thanks for looking!

EDIT: if you made it through all that ^^^ garbage, thank you and I'm sorry. I probably write like I speak and in turn write like a total jackass. anyway, many of the parts on this bike were acquired through forum members and I thank you sincerely. it wouldn't be built without your help! I don't have a ton of rides on the bike just yet but I can definitely say it's a smooth-riding bike with potential for great style. thanks again!

I don't think I ever seen a campy derailleur shift a 40T, amazing. Also love that you kept 2x even with a 40T.


Cool bike, the crust guys are killing it. Its impressive how quickly they got this bike on the market and people seem to be very happy with them.

I love that deerhead stuff. I blew up a rear derailleur from overuse.

What cassette are you using? Did you have to respace a shimano one for campy 10?

thanks for the words, y'all! trotsky- the cassette is one of the upper level cheapo sunrace ten speed wide range cassettes. I seriously love that you don't have to use the wolf toof cassette conversion thing anymore. the spacing is shimano and probably contributes to the half-dialed shifting ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
adumbl- I traded the original 55cm for this one. so glad I went with this size. let your pp touch the tt.

I don't know if that'll ever shift right with that cassette. But I have seen that you can use Campy shifters with a SRAM RD on a Shim/SRAM cassette and it'll work just fine.

Haven't tried it though.
