FarmerG’s Zukas Cycles CX Bike

Zukas Cycles CX Bike

FarmerGZukas1FarmerG is a cool dude.  He also happens to be a pretty handy bike racer, including wins and podiums in 2014 50+ UltraCX races such as Southern Cross and Hilly Billy Roubaix.  He also did some major arse kicking last weekend at the Sac O Suds 50.

FarmerG is also pretty handy around his Murphy, NC farm, growing tasty veggies, all of which are ingredients for his bad arse variety of hot sauces.  Definitely check those out.

What sort of bike does a dude like FarmerG ride?  It ain’t mass produced, and it’s handbuilt by Zukas Cycles, in nearby Augusta, Georgia.

  1. To say that Nate Zukas builds nice bikes is an understatement. They are works of art! I hope to a gravel bike from Nate in my stable some day.
