In collaboration with Montana’s Sklar Bikes and The Radavist, The Pro’s Closet (TPC) released 25 limited edition Sklar Super Something complete bikes. These bikes cater to a diverse range of riders with five different builds, showcasing the versatility of the Sklar Super Something frameset.

Sklar Bikes – Handmade Performance Frames

Adam Sklar has been crafting custom frames in Boseman, Montana since 2014. Now, he offers highly designed, hand-made, small-batch production frames for riders seeking “performance without racing in mind.” Each frame is meticulously crafted by Adam in steel or titanium.

The Sklar Super Something frameset, priced at $1599, is designed for gravel, all-road, and light touring adventures. Its versatility allows owners to build it in various configurations to suit their riding preferences.

Design Philosophy – Keeping it Simple
