LUCA COMETTI’S DREAM BUILD

SPECTRAL 29

A passing ochre-yellow-colored, vintage, pick-up truck in pristine condition provided a flash of inspiration for Luca Cometti…

Two-time Dual Slalom U.S. National Champion, Cometti, is a bicycle connoisseur with a garage filled with bikes—from hardtails to cross-country bikes to e-bikes to downhill bikes. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been obsessed with all things two wheels,” says Cometti.

With the intention of creating a “quiver killer,” Cometti turned to master mechanic and master customizer Jason Guthrie of Chainline Bikes.

Using the Canyon Spectral 29 as the foundation, Cometti and Guthrie set out to create a “dream build”—selecting each part with purpose to be truly worthy of their shared obsession to create the perfect bicycle.

Watch the video above to see how each part of this Spectral 29 Dream Build was hand-picked, then modified, to create one of the planet’s most stunning custom mountain bikes.
