I'm at work on Easter so I figured it would be a good time to catch up on the FF builds I've missed! This one is a favorite and may inform a future purchase- I'm curious as to the fork/front-end geometry. HA, A-C, rake.

Is the fork stainless steel by chance?

Thanks for the inspiring creations!

Hey Rimbaud:

Chromoly fork.

70 degree head tube angle.

50mm offset.

400mm axle to crown.

Hope this helps!

Hey Tyler

I have been drooling over pics of your bikes for a while but today while riding in central Park I saw a beautiful Firefly TI Road in all its naked glory. A true beauty.. The guy told me you have an 18 month wait.. is that true ??

Oh, sorry.... glossed over that question. We are currently running a 12 month lead time.

Yes, We bend, swage and ovalize our tubing in-house when applicable to the design.

Ive yet to own ti. Worked in 2 shops and was the mechanics road test mule, so I rode lots of ti bikes that weren't mine. A Legend that fit (tall womans) I liked the best. This has me lusting for one of these with anodized graphics. WOW.
