Hugs And Kisses From Handsome Cycles

handsome-cycles-xoxo

We just posted pictures of the marriage of Handsome Cycles and Twin Six Cycling Apparel, now here’s the answer to the question “What’s the XOXO?”

Press Release: The Handsome XOXO. Bridgestone XO-1 replica is made out of Reynolds 631 tubing, with a 1inch crown threaded fork. Geometry is spot on to the original. Available this spring. Frame and fork MSRP $639

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