The Florida Man’s roots can be very loosely traced back to the Bombora. If you have been following along with Leo, you have likely seen his stunner of a Bombora build that he rips around on. Using its platform as a jump off point, he and Matt went to town designing Leo a bike that is truly his own. What came out of the design process is a no-nonsense fixed gear frame that can take a big ol’ tire; a “country fixed” if you’re from Nutmeg Country. Great to skid around the city, or burn your legs up on a gravel road in the middle of nowhere. Its tri-color fade will have you feeling like you’re gazing out at a sunset over Tampa Bay every time you give it a glance. The artwork is a homage to Leo and his home state Florida and was designed by Cheech’s sister Patty (@whose.backyard on the gram).
The Florida Man features track dropouts and 130mm spacing out back and your standard 100mm spacing up front with quick release/bolt-on dropouts. The fork features our crown with braze-ons on the top of it and two braze-ons on the fork legs for mounting a bag support or maybe your Pec Dec. The Florida Man can be built up using a 650b or 700c wheel set. Your max tire clearances will be 27.5×2.4 or 29×2.0. Max chainring size is 44t.
The Florida Man now features removable brake posts! They're in the 650b/27.5" canti/v-brake position on all frames, so if you want to go 700 with a brake you will have to figure out a side or center pull situation to put up front, or maybe Paul Motolites will make it happen, but I don't know.
If fixed isn’t your thing you could throw a 130mm spaced coaster brake wheel in the back and “klunk” your little heart out. You could also run an internally geared coaster brake hub. Hell, you could even throw a drum brake hub on the front if you really wanted to “klunk” it up.
