I can tell you all sorts of things about the front hub and fork.

Front hub is a Chris King ISO disc .

Fork is a Wound-Up Team X Disc... with added eyelets for the fender mounts.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Pf30?

Tyler,
That fender bike with yellow accents is PF30 with a Parlee adaptor for 24mm cranks?
How do those work in the real world? I ask because I have a PF30 bike with Cannondale Hollowgram cranks- it sucks. Eats bb bearings, makes noise all the time. I am looking for an Alternative.

Yes, that is the Parlee PF30 to Shimano adapter. I was very impressed. A very nice solution. It has ceramic bearings and tight tolerances... so I think it will last. I would do it if I were in your situation.

Firefly

That 44mm headtube bike looks great.
PF30 or threaded bb?
Can you post build sheet? I would love to know all the lengths and dimensions.
Looks very proportional.

A beautifully crafted bike, and the welds in particular reek of craftsmanship.

I noticed the pads are not the green MAVIC pads, I thought they were required.

Mike,

Correct. Good eye! Those wheels were used just for setting up the gears and brakes (and resulting photoshoot). Customer is going to use their own wheels. Shipped sans-wheels.

Tyler.

Tyler,

Your work is amazing. I'm awestruck by the craftmanship. You guys love what you do and it's reflected in these bikes. Man, I need to win the lottery because I want to own a couple of your bikes and right now my wallet won't hold up. Amazing stuff!!!

Joe

Arrived today:

Firefly Purist Hydroflo's are in. If you are not familiar with these waterbottles, you should be. They rule! (in so many ways)
