Paul Budnitz releases No. 3 in stainless [Bike Radar]

Paul Budnitz No.3 Stainless Steel
Paul Budnitz, the creator of Kidrobot toys, built his first bicycles in 2006. In 2011, Budnitz Bicycles was founded with the goal of manufacturing simple, built-to-last bikes. We covered the launch of Budnitz Bicycles here. Now, a new model is available – the No. 3. The first two models by Budnitz were Ti frames. The No. 3. switched it up, offering a choice between stainless or black Cro-mo steel. Both No. 3 models come equipped with a Gates Center Track Belt Drive laced to an 11 speed Shimano Alfine Internal Hub, Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes, and 29-inch wheels. The stainless steel version runs $3,600 while the Black Cro-mo version comes in at $2800. Budnitz describes the bike as lightening-fast, yet comfortable on the streets. They offer them in S, M, L, and XL.
