Known for making beautifully simple handmade bikes that are as functional as they look, Budnitz is expanding consumer’s build options with the new No.3F. Budnitz claims the F stands for fast, fat, and very, very fun. Built on their No.3 cantilevered frame, the No.3F forgoes more traditional city tires in favor of Schwalbe’s 29×2.35 (front and rear) SuperMoto street tires. The added girth of the tires, when paired with the steel or titanium frame should result in a comfortable ride all around.
The No.3F will be offered either in singlespeed or 11 speed internal gear trim, with typical Budnitz custom options available. As with all Budnitz bikes, the No.3F will include a typically unapologetic build kit featuring their proprietary titanium handlebars as well as many other high end components and starts at $2800.
In addition to the No.3F, Budnitz is also introducing a new Ultra Pearl paint option that “sparkles and glitters with pearlescent rainbows,” for all of their bikes.
Check it out, along with the titanium No.3F, after the break.
The titanium No.3F offers a better look at the cantilevered frame.
Pictured above is a No.2 Titanium in Ultra Pearl. Budnitz worked with Spectrum Powderworks to develop the Ultra Pearl Paint which is done by layering 3 different specially mixed paints to achieve the shimmering finish.
