ELIJAH WATERHOUSE CUSTOM

Eli has been working on this for a while now and it’s almost finished.  Let’s pick his brain…

-How old are you and where are you from?
I’m 20 years old and from Colorado Springs.

-When and how did you decide to build your own bike?
I decided I wanted to build my own bike when I was about 16 years old.  At that time I didn’t know how I was going to get there, but I knew I was going to!

-What all have you personally built on the bike?
When I started actually building the bike I ordered a head tube and a bottom bracket shell from Standard Byke Co. and actually ended up turning down the shell slightly and narrowing it, then picked up another head tube and modified it as well.  The vent holes in the Standard head tube weren’t placed quite right.  Everything else on the frame and fork were hand made by myself and welded with the help of a great friend Eric Barr.

-What’s the geometry like?
The fork has closed 29.5 offset forks, just ‘cause HaHa.  The frame is a mix between the Standard Juke and my old frame, the Premium Guttershark.  It has a 74.9 degree head tube, sort of just worked like that HaHa.  11 5/8 bottom bracket height, 13.75 slammed rear end, 21 top tube and 8.5 seat tube height.

-What else do have planned forrr… Do you have a name for it?
Don’t have a name for it yet.  I’m in the work of my own hubs, stem, bars and seat currently.  Then the bike will be complete!

-Plan on making any videos of you shredding it?
Yes, I certainly plan on filming some serious shredding on my new bike!
