Perkins Dosnoventa Detroit

I’ve been after a Dosnoventa frame, specifically the Detroit, since i first spotted them back in March and now i have one. I spent last night building it and here is the result.

There’s nothing really much more i can say about it, so i’ll let the pictures of it do the talking, but what i will say is that it is incredible to ride. It’s responsive, very light and doesn’t argue when you stick it up a hill.

Most of the components are off my previous builds so i can’t really say it’s a full bike check, but the new frame/forks warranted it.

Enjoy!

In photos, these frames are amazing. Now that I’ve had chance to build and ride one of my own, I can personally vouch for their quality. If you haven’t checked them out before then you owe it to yourself to do so now. Even if you have seen them before, go have another look.

If you’re on Pedal Room, you can see this whole build on there aswell by clicking here.
