Rob Davis’ Fireman’s Goodwill Ambassador

Thanks to Greg Mundy and Rob Davis for years of support. Here’s Rob’s 20,000 mile build.

Name: Rob Davis, Firemans Goodwill Ambassador

Hometown: Austin, TX

Favorite spots : I’m all over town on this thing!  I ride with an amazing crew of cyclo-psychos here in Austin, and we have an endless assortment of routes that normally include some long-cranking uphills, and seriously puckering descents.

I originally met Greg Mundy of Firemans Texas Cruzer in 2001, on the day I bought this Firemans Cromoly 26 inch Cruzer, and I’ve been working with him, and our awesome crew ever since. I’ve put more than 20,000 miles on this bike, and I recently decided to a fully stripped-frame, new powder coat, new parts rebuild.

The last photo is the Profile Fireball 44t Sprocket from my original build of this bike.  After 20,000+ miles, I decided to give it an early retirement. I think I changed chains at least three times, but this sprocket could still go for miles and miles. That’s quality manufacturing!
