As I continue my quest to find the perfect commuter bike between the studio and home, or just bombing around town, I came across Budnitz Bicycles. The company was formed in 2011 by Paul Budnitz, focusing strictly on crafting custom bikes for their clients from titanium, stainless steel, and cro-moly steel. He's also the founder if kidrobot, a art based toy company but that's a different story. Typical of my buying habits, I've been examining various builds of bikes and components. This bike is appealing as its built with quality components from Honey leatehr Brooks Saddle and matching grips to, and most importantly for this climate where it rains a lot– disc brakes.
