Customer-built Clems - March '24

Customer-built Clems - March '24

We got a lot of Clem submissions -- thank you! I'll be breaking them up into multiple galleries over the coming weeks. Below is our first Clem gallery and I only just realized the strong international contingency -- fun!

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos. We'll be requesting customer photos for our other models soon so save your pictures for us.

Tip: the easiest way to navigate each little slideshow is to use the left and right arrows on your keyboard.


Customer Build Photo Guide Lines:

Send 3-7 hi-res photos to Shoot them in landscape orientation and include a brief description of the bike, how you ride it, why you love it, etc. The photos below are good examples of the format. We can't use images that are too small or taken in the portrait orientation.

Here is Andrew's 64cm Clem he got in 2021. Andrew didn't have much more to say about his Clem, but I think his photos can do the talking.

Probably my favourite bike, mostly used for commuting but it enjoys the odd trip out of the city. The stock build has had a few changes over the years including Bosco bars and Paul Motolite brakes. The tiny Nitto bag support is there for when my wife rides the bike and needs the saddle lowered.

You might like to see a video I made of a day trip out to the Korean countryside with the Clem:

Thank you for making great bikes.


Marcus also has a fun Clem Bike Check video thats worth a look:

Hi, my name is Loren, I live and work at a large campground in Pisgah National Forest. This is my favorite bike and it helps me get around quickly and comfortably during the work day

Nothing particularly noteworthy about the components but I love the Suntour friction downtube shifters paired with Velo Orange handlebar mounts. Also, 55mm knobbies with fenders is a dream (Pisgah is a temperate rainforest).

Here is my Clem Smith H, done up for occasional bikepacking and frequent errands/bar-biking. The Carradice saddle bag is daily carry, with matching rear panniers for overnighting. Eventually settled on 48mm slicks for speed & comfort, with Gravel King SK+ for the snowy season. This is my favourite bike to ride 12 months of the year here in Ontario, Canada as it feels safe in all conditions and is keeps me comfy all day long.

Here is Hans from Norways 52cm Clem H - 650b/XT/dynamo hub and a 1x11. Looks like it even has a oval chainring.
