Meriwether Cycles - Dirt Tourer/Urban Assault

all internally routed, even the top pull fd through the arch.
moto brakes.
discs/135mm spacing.
segmented fork.
can even fit kenda nevegals with the fenders, but have small block 8s set aside for the dirt.
73mm bb shell.
175 white industries mtb cranks, clear the stays by at least 3/4".
46x30 and 12-32.
no toe overlap.
no contact between the fender and the full-sized under-DT water bottle.
smooth as all hell and straight as an arrow riding with no hands.
truly a stunning piece of work.

paint by Jordan Low (now at Hot Tubes)
frameset by Whit Johnson of Meriwether.
build by muah.

Cool! Is it steel? Like those internally routed cables. It has an integrated kickstand?

just a show stand, brought it with me.
yep, it's steel all around. all cables internally routed.
it's a mix of true temper ox plat (main triangle) and dedacciai stays.

Beautiful bike. I love the way the paint job complements all of the outstanding details on the frame.

Fantastic all the way around!

Quick question--which fenders are you running to clear those tires? Have you had a chance to take them through the wet yet? Any idea how well they keep you and the bike dry?

thanks! they are planet bike cascadia 29er fenders, 65mm wide. theyre pretty great. haven't ridden them in a truly rainy wet yet, but they wrap around the tire pretty significantly. so judging by how well their road bike version operates in my experience i think they'll definitely work as expected.

this is the clearance with kenda nevegal tires, it's a bit tighter with the super motos though.

Cool. I need to get a pair of fenders on my Black Mountain Cycles monstercross, and this is one of the sets I've been considering. Did you have to cut it down at all to get it to fit?

Nope, no cutting. Only thing i did was scrape a little off the mounting tab that the bolt goes through. Other than that it's these as if it were out of the box.
I dont think youll be disappointed.

This is an awesome bike. Kind of reminds me of something like a Rivendell Hunqapillar, but with disc brakes, which is awesome. How do you like the Supermotos? Any consideration for dynamo setup addition?
