Featured Bike: Jonathan Greene Cycles Gravel / CX Rig

JonathanGreene2015-1Jonathan Greene Cycles is a one-man frame building operation based out of Oviedo, Florida. Jonathan built his first frame in 2006, and many have passed through his skillful hands since that time. Specializing in steel construction, everything is cut, mitered and welded in Jonathan’s workshop – because Jonathan is a custom builder, customers can break free of the usual norms, and design their dream frameset.

JonathanGreene2015-2In the case of this example owned by Guy Fazzio, Guy asked Jonathan to build a bike catering to a variety of tasks – road, gravel and singletrack, with the ability to run tires (tyres) from ranging from 28mm wide up to 45mm wide. Mission accomplished.

JonathanGreene2015-3As evidenced by paint wear on the top tube and chainstays of Guy’s bike, his Jonathan Greene Cycles creation doesn’t sit around the place looking pretty. Guy spent the entire summer in Alaska this year, crushing dirt and gravel roads aboard the bike.
