John came to us in search of a new gravel bike, but wasn’t quite sure what to choose. After attending our ‘meet the maker’ event with Scarab Cycles, he was instantly sold by the Apuna with a custom ‘Chivas’ style paint job.⁠

This beautiful bike is a true homage to Colombian culture. Chivas’ are small buses that serve as the main source of transport in rural villages. Each bus is given a name and uniquely hand painted with this unique pattern. ⁠

Just like the Chivas, each Apuna Frame is sent to the same artist who hand paints them all to create this art on wheels.⁠

Built with the new Campagnolo Ekar 13 speed group and the new Lightweight Pfadfinder Scwartz; this bike is one of the best Scarab Apuna's you will ever see.⁠

We are very proud of John and his new bike — made with love in the Colombian mountains to be ridden the Connecticut countryside.⁠
