Urban Dictionary:

1. slab (Slow Low And Bangin’): describes any fully customized, pimped out car to hit the streets. The style was born in Houston or “Screwston,” but has been spreading around the country. Houston Chronicle – Houston is to slabs what France is to champagne, what Seattle was to grunge. Slab enthusiast in Urban Dictionary – “I’m a slab rider and nuttin less.”

When I set out to build this Slab I knew I wanted it to be tough and functional for the streets. Some key features are raised chain stays for extra grind clearance. Long tapered head tube for some extra material where it is needed. Now you can have your own Slab by Pedal Driven Cycles and pimp it out with your own style. If you want something dedicated to the streets this is your Slab.
