A little background on the frame.Â The Handsome XOXO. This is an exact replica of the XO-1. If you knowÂ anything about Handsome, this is the bike that made me and Jesse wantÂ to do this in the first place. Handsome has a long history andÂ affinity with Bridgestone. The Alt, the Minneapolis shop that me and Jesse hailÂ from was started in 1974 by Jesseâ€™s dad Jay. In the 90â€™s The AltÂ was one of Bridgestone’s biggest dealers in the country. At the time theÂ store was being run by Gene Oberpriller who was a pro racer forÂ Bridgestone and now owns One On One Bike Studio (where we have ourÂ release parties every year) It is safe to say that our replica comesÂ out of the utmost respect for the original and it’s creator. Â FrameÂ is made out of Reynolds 631, has a 1inch threaded steertube, 26inchÂ wheels.
