Tyler,
This just sick. I can't wait to see Mr. Brunk's. If you are doing you own photos they are great, If someone else is doing them give them a raise.

Mike

Looking forward to the Brunk build (ti 29'er ISP)... Sounds like the finish is up to me... what to do?

Thanks Keith.

Here is one from a little while ago. Made out of "max profiled" XCr stainless steel tubing. We coined it MegaMax and have made each and every of our stainless bikes using tubing in these profiles. We had Columbus shape the tubing in the max profiles (bi-axially ovalized) but had them make new mandrils to accommodate the larger diameter tubing and refine the shape for the more contemporary methods of joining that we employ (i.e. TIG welding vs. lugged which is what the original max was designed for).









Cheers.

Titanium

A similar build to the last one but made out of titanium and with a horizontal top tube. Polished with blasted graphics as opposed to the reverse on the previous bike...
