Nora's Awesome Neutrino

by Igor Shteynbuk
When I first got this frameset I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it or how to build it up. When I first saw it I just knew I had to have it! I often refer to it as my BMX dutch bike. It is comically upright (and comfortable!) yet so squat and rips on and off pavement! I had fenders installed so I could ride it year round in the PNW and I tossed a rack and basket on there for good measure. Without fenders and rack it is quite nimble and zippy. I continually surprise myself whenever I can make it up steep hills on this thing. It rips on descents too. I love it! I want to eventually chop more steerer off. The urge to convert this bike to single speed festeres in my brain. Whenever I bop around on the neutrino I am overcome with so much joy and am grateful to this lil frame for ensuring so much joy.
My good friend Trevor (owner of local bike shop Abraham Fixes Bikes) built these lil Velocity Cliffhangers for me. Purple nurples were essential. 
My friend Gram at Golden Pliers wired up the dynamo and installed the VO fenders as well. I like how he used an old chainring as a mount for my edelux2.
