FF-920 City / Utility…

We started talking with Firefly Bicycles about building a hard-tail during the winter for a TSH family member. A few conversations about need + time (on the bike) + versatility, oh and very importantly… space! in a small apartment! and we realized what we really needed was a utility bike for Chicago but something you could throw some panniers on for some bike packing or Gravel Grinding weekend trips. Thus was born the FF-920 City / Utility / Flat Bar Tourer. Full build below.
