Luca Cometti's Very Custom Canyon Spectral Dream Bike Build

 

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 build the perfect bicycle.
