Handmade Cyclocross Bike: Adam's Miles Cycle

This is cool, some posh components on a rusty custom made frame! Check out below...

"Hello! Wanted to submit my cyclocross bike to your gallery.

Handmade by my good friend Joshua Thayer in the sketchiest part of San Francisco: Hunters Point! He works under the name Miles Cycles but has never had any proper decals on his bikes. Its just a long time hobby.

Mix of Columbus tubing, fillet brazed. It was never painted as I was too impatient to get out and ride the thing, and havent been able to part with it long enough to strip it down and have it taken care of. Hence the rusty finish (note how my legs keep the top tube nice and shiny!)

All the components are 2008/2009. The Jtek Shiftmate is what allows it to all work together.

Very similar to a bike I recently built up.
