It's a boy! Meet the all-new Culprit Croz Blade Roadie! Born into this world at 7.94kg in Changhua City, Taiwan on April 25, 2016. 

Huge thanks to Joshua Colp, the brains behind the Culprit Bicycles for bringing this sexy custom painted road machine into the world! Thank you for supporting our triathlon team, Endurance Cubed. We look forward to many training miles on the road with the Culprit Bicycles in hopes to earn some podium finishes ;)  

This bike rides so incredibly smooth, and climbs so incredibly well! I am a true believer of the Culprit! Just ask my buddy Chad(see GoPro photos at the bottom), how I really felt about my bike... I just wouldn't shut up about it!


HELP! HELP ME NAME HIM!

I'M TAKING NAME REQUESTS!
Help me name my baby...
