Thanks For Being Here

Tyler, I looked at this bike and thought what a great time we're in now. It reminds me of years ago when MTBs were evolving so fast right before our eyes with new ideas showing up all the time.

Sometimes we read posts from those who wish to stand still and I laugh because what they hold dear now was once an out of the box thought.

Keep pushing boundaries and meshing ideas to bring us something fresh.

Thanks Burnette. Will do. The frame and associated geometry are really figured out on this bike. It's the parts that really make it stand out and make it seem to be pushing boundaries. The key is to get the person in the proper place between and over the wheels and make sure the bike handles properly. Contact points are spot on and the fork length and offset are correct for the handling characteristics that we desired for the intended use... so really, it's just the look of it that is pushing the comfort level. The frame isn't really pushing any boundaries. If we did our job right it will just become an extension of the rider.

Damn

Love visiting this thread just to see what you guys/gals have done next. Your craftsmanship is just stellar. Though not all of the bikes are necessarily something I would want the build quality is some of the best on the planet. Your attention to detail is incredible. Those welds, those dropouts. Wow. Wish I could call a Firefly my own some day. Keep up the incredible work. Matthew

Yes we are living in great times for Ti builders. I have a Spectrum Ti which I love but this thread is where I go to get my fix of Ti bikes. Always great and interesting work. Well done Tyler.

I woke up early this morning, and the Flickrs of this bike burned the day's first images onto my sleepy retinas. It felt rad. Better than coffee.

The Oliver + Switchback Hills looks fun. The Oliver looks better with the touch of paint. Who painted this fade?

Good on Firefly for making another crazy idea a reality.
