    2018 Crust Evasion step-thru, BBS02 or BBSHD, Shimano Alfine 8 IGH

    Next up is a Crust Evasion step through frame. Most of the ebike parts for this build will be coming off of a prior Priority 8 build (documented here).

    This will be my third build, with the following goals, desires, or components:
    • The new Shimano e-bike hardened 8-speed Alfine IGH SG-S7001-8
    • Fattish tire clearance with a narrowish Q. 2-2.4" wide, 26 inch tires, such as the Schwabe Big Ben Plus on Velocity Dually rims to reduce standover height
    • TRP Spyre cable brake calipers
    • BBS02 or BBSHD - haven't decided yet
    • short reach bars / stems
    • Adjustable, replaceable rear dropouts with an inboard (within the frame triangle) disk caliper mount
    • Capacity for a temporary chain tensioner
    • Steel frame tubes
    The frame has a relatively high seat tube and big main triangle for a battery, and triple bottle mounts on the down tube:

    Warning - Detour Ahead

    I very much enjoy dealing with the smaller bike companies that have spunk - like Surly and Crust. Oh, and of course Luna.

    Here's a Crust video I found cute, but perhaps hits too close to home for some of us:

      Too funny! My brother has a Harley Davidson CVO Street Glide that is sparkle black like that bike with blue ghost flames floating in the clear coat. That's a beautiful bike and I like the mermaid too.

      I received the frame today. It's supposed to be a dark purple.

      I've a degree of red-green color blindness - it's not black, but beyond that, I can't tell what color it is. Maybe the color will reveal out in a bright sun.
Working...
